SUPER RUGBY TRANS-TASMAN FINAL
Blues v Highlanders
Eden Park, Auckland
It is the Blues first final appearance since 2003, which also took place in Auckland. Eden Park played host to the first three Super 12 finals in 1996, 1997 and 1998.
The Highlanders are looking to win their second title after claiming their maiden Super Rugby championship in 2015.
Eden Park has a capacity of around 42,000.
The Blues sold out their opening match of the Super Rugby Aotearoa competition last season, in the first major sporting event following the first Covid-19 lockdown.
For Blues No 8 Hoskins Sotutu, coming into form at the right time after claiming two tries against the Force, the chance to claim a Super Rugby title is close to his heart after his father, Waisake, inspired his dream to represent the region by being involved in the inaugural 1996 side to achieve the feat.
