Champions League - Crusaders vs  Roosters 2 pic

This game could be very interesting. Each team has beaten the Copenhagen Towers, the third team in the group, although Helsinki had more of a struggle winning 13-0, while not scoring in the second half. Carlstad on the other hand, cruised to a 34-9 victory and look poised to advance to the semis.

However, Helsinki is the reigning champion and beat the Crusaders in last year’s group match up 42-30 after falling behind 17-0 in the first half.

The Crusaders have undergone a coaching change since their game against the Towers so are still trying to get back on track. This one is a toss up.
