2008 Super 14 Final Preview - Waratahs vs Crusaders

2008 Super 14 Final Preview - Waratahs vs Crusaders

We've reached the eve of the final. It's all come down to two teams, 30 players in 80 minutes of high-octane, high-intensity rugby. Nothing will be left in the tank by the end of this cross-Tasman clash between the New South Wales Waratahs from Australia and the Canterbury Crusaders from New Zealand.

There's been highs and lows for both sides throughout the 14 week competition, but they managed to finish on a high last weekend in the Semis. The Waratahs toppled a Sharks side that didnt turn up, and the Crusaders were back to their best, finishing off a strong Hurricanes side in the second half. Will the wear and tear of last weekend still be present for the two finalists? Will it be a blow out or are the Waratahs here to shut down the most successful side this tournament has ever seen?

With emotions flowing, both sides will be wanting to send off their departing coaches on a high. Expect this one to be physical and intense till the end.

Our short preview looks at some of the action from the two semi-final games and touches on what obstacles both teams had to overcome to deserve their place in the final. Enjoy, and be sure to let us know who you think will be lifting the coveted trophy when all is said and done.
