    Top of the ladder and bookies favourite take on the Bulls for the second of the semi finals.
    The Crusaders have the home ground advantage (as well as not having to fly half way around the world). The Bulls last week showed that if they are hungry enough the have the game plan to really open up an opposition.

    The Crusaders showed that they can go on cruise mode and smash you in the last 10 to 15 minutes.

    Fingers crossed that the Southern Heavens don’t open up to much and make this look like a game of mud wrestling instead of a good game of running. I expect the weather to play a part in the outcome of this game.

    Someone should really buy NZ a dry stadium…

    Wet weather might be the Bulls best chance, if it's dry the Crusaders could give the Bulls the beating of there lives.

    Habana needs to lift

    Go Bulls!!!

    crusaders at home are unstoppable. they haven't lost there since 2004 and 17 games now or something. bulls will do well to stay in the contest. crusaders should win fairly easily I think

    Crusaders to win, 28 - 17...

    10 - 14 at half time to the Bulls.

    I think it will be very close, however the Crusaders should pull through in the last few minutes - only just though. Should be interesting, it would be even more so if the Sharks were playing.

    I want the Bulls to win, but I can't see it happening.

    Upsets are possible but I don't think the Bulls can match the depth style and flair the Crusaders have....talking from my head. I hope the Bulls don't let the Cheatsaders get to them as much as they did at Loftus....

    Now for my heart....We're going to smash you in your own back yard just like you did to us, then I'm gonna dance the jig.

    Go BULLS!!

    crusaders will be way too strong and the travel factor does not favour the bulls at all. I was readin an articles I think on tvnz and the crusaders haven't lost at jade since febuary 2004. 17 games unbeaten at jade since then and proabbly 18 this weekend

    Here's a story:

    I was talking to my mate who came to New Zealand from South Africa this year about the Bulls. We were discussing various Bulls players and I brought up Brian Habana. My mate says: "He used to beat me up." I thought this was interesting and asked for more detail. Apparently when my mate was a first year at his high school, Habana was a final year. And it was one of those schools where final year's [edit]give the first year's ****.

    That's my story.
