The All Blacks captain Kieran Read will make his long-awaited return for the Crusaders tomorrow night against the Hurricanes in Wellington in a that could go a long way in deciding the New Zealand conference title.
The 33-year-old Read has not played since the All Blacks’ end-of-season tour last year and was one of the senior international players given an extended break in the off-season with an eye on the Rugby World Cup in Japan later this year.
The Crusaders head the Super Rugby standings on 19 points despite suffering their first loss in more than a year last week in Sydney, when they were beaten 20-12 by the New South Wales Waratahs.
Crusaders will meet Hurricanes at 6.35pm tomorrow while Waratahs will take on Sunwolves at 8.45.
