You can take a gander at it and say that Rangers and Celtic [the Old Firm competition in Scotland] is a top game, Barcelona and Madrid [the Spanish El Clasico] is a top game. Every one of the derbies are top games yet Tottenham and Arsenal [the London derby] has taken steps to be a ruin [because, similar to Chiefs and Pirates, they've been battling for trophies]," said Baxter.
