The news just keeps getting better for the Crusaders.
One of New Zealand's form Super Rugby teams takes on the Reds in a repeat of last year's final, coming off the back of three-straight wins.

"We expect them to be close to being fit and available for this weekend's fixture. It's a testament to our medical staff and the desire that both of them have to get back and get back into the campaign."
