The second edition of Super Rugby Aotearoa kicks off tonight, with the Highlanders hosting the Crusaders in the opening match, before the Hurricanes host the Blues tomorrow.

The Chiefs have the bye.

While the Covid-19 pandemic continues to disrupt sport and life around the world one thing remains unchanged - the Crusaders being heavy favourites to win.
