  • There are mouth watering match-ups all over the park here tonight but perhaps the key contest will be Beauden Barrett up against Damian McKenzie which is worth the price of admission alone.  Both sides have plenty of firepower in their backline but you get the feeling that this clash will be won and lost upfront and at set piece.
