Highlanders lock Josh Dickson has lit the fuse for an explosive South Island derby by announcing they can 'dominate' the Crusaders pack.
Dickson says they train hard as a forward pack, they do our part and have a good plan, so if we they out there and execute there is nothing that should be stopping them.
He says their goal is to dominate everytime.
The Highlanders will take on the Crusaders at 6.35pm Saturday.
Meanwhile on Friday, the Hurricanes will take on the Chiefs at 6.35pm.
