The Hurricanes v Chiefs match at Sky Stadium in Wellington will now be played on Sunday 20 March at 3:35pm NZT. The match was initially scheduled for Saturday 19 March at 7.05pm NZT.
The Crusaders v Blues match at Orangetheory Stadium will now be played on Saturday 19 March at 7:05pm NZT. The match was initially scheduled for Sunday 20 March at 3.35pm NZT.
The reason for the switch of dates is to allow the Hurricanes an extra day to prepare for their match as a group of players return from isolation periods due to COVID-19.
