After the Sunwovles shocked the Waratahs at home last weekend, Round 8 of Super Rugby will see them take on the Rebels in Melbourne and pay for their second win in Australia.

But the round is highlighted by the Crusaders returning home for the first time since the Christchurch terror attacks to take on the Brumbies, in what is sure to be an emotional night.
