The clash between the Crusaders and Bulls also offers one of the season's highlights, and a compelling contest of styles.
The Crusaders are the top attacking team in the competition this season with 195 points from six games - an average of 32.5 points per game – but alloy that strength to the second-best defensive record in the tournament.
Canterbury has conceded only 93 points at 15.5 points per game and hold joint second place with Queensland, three points behind the Stormers.
The Bulls have begun to regain form after losses to the Highlanders and Stormers and enter the match on the back of last week's win over the Hurricanes with four wins from six games.
Bulls fullback Zane Kirchner has been passed fit to play after recovering from a knee strain and Danie Rossouw returns to the starting lineup after missing the match against the Hurricanes.
"They certainly don 't come much harder than this one, " coach Frans Ludeke said. "The Crusaders are playing great rugby, but we have shown in the past that we never shy away from huge challenges. More importantly for us will be our own desire to improve every week. Last weekend showed massive improvement, but we will need another massive step-up to beat the Crusaders."
