Hurricanes will be looking forward to put up an amazing and classic performance when they take on the Crusaders in another stunning matchup
Clearly, The Crusaders suffered their first defeat since 2017 when they went down to the Waratahs in Sydney last week.
Surely, It’s been an emotional fortnight for Scott Robertson’s men in the wake of the terror attacks in Christchurch, and one could forgive them for letting their standards slip during this difficult time.
And now, That said, it needs to be remembered that Robertson fielded a largely inexperienced combination against the Waratahs.
All Blacks captain Kieran Read will play his first game in four months this Friday
Flyhalf Richie Mo’unga and lock Scott Barrett are two other returnees that will lend the Crusaders some clout.
The Hurricanes rested a number of senior players for the fixture against the Stormers last week.
Centre Ngani Laumape, who has already scored five tries in 2019, has been reinstated ahead of the clash with the Crusaders, as has scrumhalf TJ Perenara.
The Hurricanes will be without All Blacks hooker Dane Coles, though. The Hurricanes pack as a collective may battle to match that of the Crusaders.
The Crusaders have scored 14 of their 25 tries from first phase this season. This stat points to the strength of their scrum and lineout.
It will be interesting to see how the Hurricanes defence copes with the assault by the Crusaders.
A lot of All Blacks will be involved in this fixture, and I’m sure that Steve Hansen – as well as a few other international coaches such as Bok mentor Rassie Erasmus – will be watching.
Beauden Barrett has the ability to ignite his team’s attack, whether he’s running at the line, putting a teammate into space, or finding his winger with a pinpoint kick-pass.
Mo’unga has been Barrett’s understudy at international level for the past season or so. The two-time Super Rugby winner may be determined to prove a point when master and apprentice meet this Friday.
Definitely, The side selected to front the Hurricanes at the Cake Tin boasts a more seasoned and formidable look.
