Battle of the first-fives in Chch Super 14 clash

3:41 pm on 6 March 2010

There's an expectation of a bruising Super 14 rugby match in Christchurch tonight between the Crusaders and the Blues.

Each side has beaten the other eight times in their history, and both are coming off morale-boosting wins last week.

And Crusaders' first-five, Dan Carter, knows that comparisons will be made between him and the Blues' new first-five, former teammate Stephen Brett.

Carter says that as a team, the Crusaders know a lot about how Brett likes to play and no doubt he will be sharing similar information with his Blues teammates.

Kick off is at 25 to 8.
