The two teams played at Hamilton at the beginning of the month, with the Crusaders coming out in a 28-21 win, revenge for the Chiefs 24-19 win in Napier in round three.

The Crusaders accounted for the Bulls 28-13 in the Super Rugby Qualifier over the weekend, and will now take on the New Zealand Conference champion Chiefs, who took the first weekend of the Super Rugby Finals Series off courtesy of their top-two finish.

Chiefs CEO Gary Dawson told Newstalk ZB that fans should hurry with less than eight thousand tickets remaining.

"For the round robin game we had just over 25,000 there so we're looking for a similar crowd on Friday night," Dawson said.

If the Chiefs reach the Super Rugby Final, but have to travel to South Africa, they will leave for the Republic (via Australia) on the Sunday.
