The Crusaders have sold more than 10,000 tickets for next Saturday's Super Rugby semifinal - and they don't know who they will be playing yet.

A full-house sign should be up at AMI Stadium after the Crusaders learn who their opponent will be.

They will play the highest qualifier from this weekend's preliminary playoffs, possibly the Sharks (ranked third), who host the Highlanders (sixth) in Durban tomorrow morning. The Brumbies (fourth) meet the Chiefs (fifth) in Canberra tonight.

The lowest-ranked qualifier will play the Waratahs, who topped the round-robin table, in Sydney next Saturday. 

Tickets went on sale last Tuesday after the Crusaders learnt they would definitely be playing at AMI Stadium at 7.35pm on July 26.

Crusaders chief executive Hamish Riach said it was highly unusual to open ticket sales so early ''when we don't even know who we're going to be playing''. But he was ''very pleased'' with early ticket sales with around 10,000 snapped up by yesterday afternoon.

The stadium's capacity is 17,300.

What do you make of the Blues signing Jimmy Cowan?

It's a great move. His experience is needed.

The jury's still out for me. Let's wait and see.

It's a desperate move. Respectfully, Cowan is past it.

The Blues have bigger worries than halfback.
