5:35 pm on 6 March 2010

In Super 14 rugby, the Crusaders host the Blues in Christchurch tonight, giving news Blues first five, Stephen Brett, a chance to measure himself against his former teammate, Dan Carter.

The Crusaders coach, Todd Blackadder, is confident the inevitable comparisons won't be much of a distraction for his players.

He says his team face good quality players every week, but it will be interesting as many of his side have played alongside Brett, and so they probably know his game inside out.

Kick off is at 25 to 8.
