ROUND 13

MOANA PASIFIKA V CRUSADERS
FRIDAY 19 MAY

The Crusaders are a good chance to break into the top three assuming all goes to plan against Moana Pasifika in round 13. Although they have looked threatening at times, the Mt Smart-based Moana Pasifika are yet to win a match this season. After going down 71-22 to the Hurricanes in Wellington, the form guide would suggest another easy win for the Crusaders although their one-point win over the Fijian Drua showed a level of vulnerability.

REDS V BLUES
FRIDAY 19 MAY
LIVE & EXCLUSIVE ON STAN SPORT FROM 7:00PM AEST 

Off the back of their upset win over the Chiefs, the Queensland Reds have momentum firmly on their side. Desperate to stay inside the top eight, there’s no doubt the hosts will field a full-strength squad to try and topple the fifth placed Blues. The Auckland side heads to Brisbane fresh off a try-less loss to the Crusaders in Christchurch.

HIGHLANDERS V REBELS
SATURDAY 20 MAY
LIVE & EXCLUSIVE ON STAN SPORT FROM 2:00PM AEST

Too many times this season have the Highlanders and Melbourne Rebels shown glimpses of what’s possible. Four times this year the Rebels have led at half time only to concede defeat. Although this weekend’s clash in Dunedin is between the minors, it promises to be a tight contest.

CHIEFS V HURRICANES

The chart-topping Chiefs will host the hard-charging Hurricanes in what is expected to be a belter. The Chiefs were rattled by the Reds in round 12 while the Hurricanes were at their brilliant best against Moana Pasifika. The last time the Chiefs faced the Hurricanes they won 33-17 in Wellington.

WARATAHS V FIJIAN DRUA
SATURDAY 20 MAY
LIVE ON STAN SPORT FROM 7:00PM AEST

Perhaps the most important contest of round 13 is between the NSW Waratahs and the Fijian Drua. The ‘Tahs sit perilously close dropping out of the top eight – currently sat sixth – while the Drua edge ever closer to their first Super Rugby Pacific finals berth in ninth. It’s been a long time since the two sides faced each other, the Waratahs triumphing 46-17 in Fiji in round two. The Drua have looked a much better side since then.

FORCE V BRUMBIES
SATURDAY 20 MAY
LIVE & EXCLUSIVE ON STAN SPORT FROM 9:55PM AEST

Round 13 of Super Rugby Pacific closes out with the Western Force hosting the ACT Brumbies. The Force are yet to score any major scalps and their run to the finals is a tough one with the Brumbies, Rebels, and Chiefs to come. The Brumbies, meanwhile, can begin to make a case to top the league should they beat the Force and then face the top-of-the-table Chiefs before ending the year against the Rebels.

GAME 1

AUSTRALIA V FIJIANA

SATURDAY 20 MAY
LIVE ON STAN SPORT FROM 4:30PM AEST

Allianz Stadium is set for a huge doubleheader when the Wallaroos take on Fijiana ahead of the Waratahs men’s match against the Fijian Drua.
After an impressive World Cup campaign last year, the Wallaroos are looking to kickstart their 2023 Test season against Fijiana. The side is packed full of youthful exuberance, including the 22-year-old Waratahs star Piper Duck being named as captain, making her the youngest Wallaroos captain in history.

SEMI FINALS

SEVILLA V JUVENTUS
FRIDAY 19 MAY
LIVE & EXCLUSIVE ON STAN SPORT FROM 4:55AM AEST

Leverkusen showed in the opening minutes of the first leg that they have enough to worry a Roma side which has emerged victorious from ten of their last 11 UEFA knockout phase ties. However, the Bundesliga outfit may be without Odilon Kossounou and Robert Andrich, who both hobbled off at the Stadio Olimpico, as Xabi Alonso looks to get one over on his old Real Madrid boss José Mourinho.

LEVERKUSEN V ROMA
FRIDAY 19 MAY
LIVE & EXCLUSIVE ON STAN SPORT FROM 4:55AM AEST

Federico Gatti’s goal deep into second-half added time denied Sevilla a first-leg victory at Juventus, but if the Bianconeri are not behind as they prepare for the return, they have much to do. Six-time competition winners Sevilla are unbeaten in 18 Europa League games at the Ramón Sánchez-Pizjuán (W16 D2).
