Round Twenty see’s the final round robin games of the 2013 Investec Super Rugby tournament. This Friday the Crusaders take on the Hurricanes at AMI Stadium. Kick–off is at 7.35pm.

Crusaders Head Coach Todd Blackadder has named his team to play the Hurricanes making only one change to the starting fifteen that beat the Chiefs 43-15 last weekend. With Luke Romano out of consideration with an ankle injury, Tom Donnelly joins Sam Whitelock in the middle row.

The two sides have met on 23 occasions during the competition with the Crusaders winning 65% of the matches. The last time the two sides met however was back in March in round four of the competition when the Hurricanes pipped the Crusaders to the post by one point.

The Crusaders are currently sitting fourth on the points table and will be looking for a win against the Hurricanes in order to secure themselves a home advantage in the Qualifiers.
