Well Canes will want a win here to keep trying for a top 4 position. Rebels have perhaps lost chance to make top 8 after their unlucky or otherwise against Chiefs.

I take it the wind blowing cold in Wellington! By geez this a cold snap thats come through from south, so usually makes messy weather in Welly.
Was rugby man's weather for watching club rugby here in the Naki today!! I was somewhat cold.
