The Super Rugby season climaxes this weekend as the Hurricanes host the Lions in Wellington, with both franchises chasing their maiden title.
Hurricanes hooker and captain Dane Coles is a likely starter after missing the semi-final with a rib injury. Meanwhile, Lions No.8 and skipper Warren Whiteley is on track to play after sitting out last week’s game.
The Hurricanes hold a 15-4 lead in 19 previous clashes with the Lions, including wins in all nine of their home games in the rivalry. The Hurricanes thumped the Lions 50-17 in Johannesburg in Round 10 – the Lions’ last defeat aside from their second-string line-up’s defeat to the Jaguares in the final round. The teams have not met in Wellington since 2011, when the Hurricanes prevailed 38-27.
