After both losing out in their opening Super Rugby rugby fixtures last week, the Blues and Crusaders will be looking to put their seasons back on track at Eden Park tonight.

Sir John Kirwan's Blues suffered a first half collapse against the Highlanders in Dunedin but showed enough flashes of brilliance in the second half to give them confidence ahead of their first home game of the year.

The Crusaders meanwhile were both out-thought and out-muscled on their own patch by the Chiefs last weekend and will come to Eden Park as a wounded, but very dangerous, beast.
