  • Wallabies duties have also depleted the Rebels of several star players - Will Genia, Dane Haylett-Petty and skipper Adam Coleman. Having said that, the Highlanders too are affected by All Blacks secondment.
    '
  • The Highlanders have a strong record historically against the Rebels but are coming off two substantial losses - three in the last five matches.
    '
  • This is a must-win game for the Rebels if they want to ensure their place in the finals. Wins for Australian conference teams in New Zealand are rare, but the Rebels are the only team to have secured one this season and will therefore be looking to repeat that feat.
    '
  • Super Rugby Saturday will kickoff shortly when the Highlanders host the Rebels at Forsyth Barr Stadium in Dunedin.
