Join us and watch the Blues v Hurricanes - Saturday 3 April 2021 - Eden Park - 7.05pm
The Sky Super Rugby Aotearoa 2021 Season:
The Sky Super Rugby Aotearoa 2021 schedule has been revealed and it has one major change from last year's successful tournament - a final. The 2020 edition was robbed of a completed schedule when the second Covid-19 lockdown saw the final match between the Blues and Crusaders at Eden Park cancelled.
The Sky Super Rugby Aotearoa 2021 season will kick off with an old fashioned southern derby in a return to Friday night football. The schedule for the second instalment of the domestic competition has been announced, with 10 weeks of New Zealand derbies beginning on Friday February 26, with the Highlanders hosting the Crusaders in Dunedin.
The first round will finish with the Hurricanes entertaining the Blues in Wellington on Saturday February 27, while the Chiefs enjoy the bye in the opening week.
Blues fans will have to wait a bit before they get to see action, with the Blues' first home game at Eden Park coming in round three against the Highlanders.
There is a mixture of matches spread across all three weekend days, with the Blues hosting two popular Sunday afternoon clashes and two Saturday evening games.
The final between the top two sides after 10 weeks will take place on Saturday, May 8, contending the Tū Kōtahi Aotearoa trophy.
