The Queensland Reds are currently experiencing their most successful season in years in the Super Rugby competition, leading both the Australian conference and the overall ladder.
But at Suncorp Stadium on Sunday 29 May, they come up against one of the heavyweights of world Rugby, the Canterbury Crusaders.
The Crusaders have the best record of all Super Rugby teams and feature a number of All Black representatives, so they will be a real test for the local team.
On the other hand, the Reds have been the form team this year and a win over the Crusaders, following thier gutsy effort against the Auckland Blues, will show they are a genuine contender for the 2011 Super Rugby crown.
This is one game not to be missed.
