Crusaders - clear favorite
The Crusaders will enter this encounter with the goal of improving on their performance against the Chiefs in the first game of the league season, which they lost at home. In the game, the Crusaders' poor performance resulted in them missing a penalty kick in the sixth minute, which had the potential to put them in the lead. However, Mo'unga gave them the lead with a score in the 13th minute, and they finished the first half with a 10-7 advantage. They couldn't make up for their bad offense and defense in the second half, so they lost 0-24. After experiencing a lot of poor play in the second half of that match, the home team will now be hoping that they can avoid those mistakes and obtain a win that they really deserve.
Highlanders - struggling Highlanders can not avoid defeat
Following a loss to the Blues in the opening game of the season, which finished with a score of 20–60, the Highlanders will have a difficult time winning this match as well. The Highlanders are currently in last place in the Global Super Rugby League, but they have allowed the most points to be scored against them through the first week of fixtures. Nonetheless, it is essential to be aware that none of their most recent four matches resulted in a victory for them.
