After 15 weeks of regular season and two rounds of playoffs, a packed Eden Park awaits the Blues and Crusaders in the inaugural Super Rugby Pacific final this Saturday night.
There is no argument that the two best teams are left standing in the competition. The Blues are on a 15-match winning streak and have the bonus of a raucous home crowd. The Crusaders are currently on a 27-match winning streak in playoff rugby and are chasing an unprecedented 11th Super Rugby title.
The key to the title might be in the 10 jersey where the world class duo of Beauden Barrett and Richie Mo’unga square off. Both players have been in incredible form in 2022 and can equally control the game with their astute tactical play or bust it wide open with their x-factor and attacking flair.
