The unbeaten Stormers face the Crusaders in Christchurch on Saturday afternoon, looking to extend their winning streak to seven. Last week the South African side recorded a strong 21-6 win over the Highlanders, who had only suffered one defeat during this campaign. The Stormers have now won five of their past six in New Zealand, although they are yet to win in Christchurch and have won just a solitary game in the last six meetings between the sides.
Round eight sees two Australian derbies being played, with Western Force looking to record their second win over the NSW Waratahs this season when they meet in Perth on Friday night. On Saturday night the ACT Brumbies face the Melbourne Rebels in Canberra, looking to reverse a run of form that has seen them lose three of their past four matches.
