Old rivals: Blues & Crusaders

We have come to that time of the week when Planet Rugby brings you all an offering of a stand-out video we think you'll like the look of.

Our recent choices have seen Dan Carter, NFL v Rugby, a rampant All Blacks beating Ireland and classic Calcutta Cup action as we continue to scour the archives.

This Saturday will see the Crusaders take on the Blues once again in the battle between two of New Zealand's famous franchises.

So, we take you back to 1998 when these two sides met in only the third ever Super Rugby Final at Eden Park when James Kerr snatched victory for the men from Christchurch. We've even included the teamsheets and scorers for you below. Enjoy!
