Round – 1: Chiefs vs Crusaders Super Rugby Pacific 2024 in Waikato

The Chiefs vs Crusaders Super Rugby Pacific 2024 season will begin with three away games before moving home to play a local derby.

On Friday, 23 February in FMG Waikato, our guys will play the Chiefs in the opening round once more, setting up a thrilling rematch of the Grand Final.

On Saturday, March 2, we’re heading to Melbourne to play the Waratahs in the Super Round. I’m glad to see that derby return to New Zealand, since we played the Highlanders there in 2023. Then, on Saturday, March 9, we go off to Fiji to play the Drua in Round 3.

This is also Rob Penney’s debut game as the Crusaders‘ coach after he formally succeeded All Blacks coach-elect Scott Robertson at the beginning of August.

Penney will also have two chances to play against the Waratahs, the squad he coached from 2019 to 2021 before being fired. That’s in round two in Melbourne and round eight in Sydney.

However, that will come after the season opener, in which the Chiefs will undoubtedly be eager to win back after the red and blacks defeated them 25–20 in the big dance in June.
