THE Gallagher Chiefs will take on BNZ Crusaders at home this weekend.
The Chiefs have won four of their last five games against the Crusaders at FMG Stadium Waikato, including a 24-point win when they last faced off at the venue.
According to SANZAAR, the Chiefs have won their last 11 games on the bounce at FMG Stadium Waikato not losing at the venue since Round 11, 2016, against the Highlanders.
Meanwhile, the Crusaders have won 10 of their last 13 New Zealand derbies, with four of their last five wins in such fixtures coming by margins of more than 10 points.
And the Chiefs have made more metres (496) and more clean breaks (15) a game than any other club so far in this campaign.
Crusader’s Richie Mo’unga has won 18 of his last 19 Super Rugby games, including his last five in a row against New Zealand opposition – he was missing for each of the Crusaders’ last two Super Rugby defeats.
