The colder the better.

Crusaders coach Scott Robertson has stressed on this about the weather tonight as the Swire Shipping Fijian Drua beat them 25-24 in the sweltering Lautoka heat in round 3 of the Shop N Save Super Rugby Pacific.

Robertson says they have been really reflective of that game, but they have to put it in context, where they are at, a few months later, different conditions, different scenario.

He adds it's finals footy.

The coach says they are really clear on what they have got to do and they know what the Drua will bring.

He adds they have a clear mindset of what they have to do tonight.

The Crusaders host the Drua at 7.05pm at Orangetheory Stadium, Christchurch.

In other quarter-finals, the Blues demolished the Waratahs 41-12 last night, the Chiefs play the Reds at 4.35pm today, and the Brumbies face the Hurricanes at 9.35 tonight.
