Brett not expecting a warm welcome at AMI Stadium

12:38 pm on 5 March 2010

The Blues first-five Stephen Brett isn't expecting a warm welcome to his old home ground when one of super rugby's most intense rivalries resumes in Christchurch tomorrow night.

Brett played 39 games for the Crusaders and there'll be keen interest in how he goes against the All Black number 10 Dan Carter.

Since super rugby started 16 years ago the Blues and Crusaders have each won eight times, seldom by a big margin, and Brett says there's always an extra edge to the matches so he's braced for some niggly late hits.
