The Crusaders entertain the Chiefs in Super Rugby Aotearoa at the Orangetheory Stadium in Christchurch on Sunday. The handicap market looks set to provide value in this clash, while Crusaders winger Sevu Reece is being backed to score.


Crusaders Form & News


The Crusaders have been brilliant this year, losing just one of their six 2020 Super Rugby fixtures. Their last two games before the end of Super Rugby saw they defeat the Reds 24-20 in Christchurch, before destroying the Sunwolves 49-14 in Japan.

The Saders were handed a bye in the first round of Super Rugby Aotearoa matches, before beating the Hurricanes 39-25 in Wellington in round two.

Winger Sevu Reece was electrifying last weekend, so he is a great bet to score again.

The Crusaders were pure class last weekend but we could see the likes of Luke Romano getting a start this weekend.

Chiefs Form & News


The Chiefs made a decent enough start to the 2020 Super Rugby campaign. In week two, they beat the Crusaders 25-15, and prior to the lockdown break they defeated a poor Waratahs side 51-14 in Sydney. However, they then returned home and lost 27-24 to the Hurricanes.

In their first Super Rugby Aotearoa match, the Chiefs lost 28-27 to the Highlanders in Dunedin in heartbreaking fashion. Last weekend, the Blues took the Chiefs down in Auckland, winning 24-12.

Despite defeat the Chiefs are likely to stick with the same line-up. Aaron Cruden impressed upon his return at fly-half and should be retained.
