The bitter rugby rivalry between Canterbury and Auckland has been re-ignited ahead of the Crusaders clash with the Blues in Christchurch tomorrow night.

The provincial bloodfeud, which dates back more than a century, has waned in recent years with the nine times champion Crusaders dominating almost all comers.

With both sides unbeaten after their first three games of Super Rugby Aotearoa, tomorrow's match up has fans and players hoping for a new chapter in the storied conflict.
