The Crusaders have named their team to play the Waratahs on Friday at AMI Stadium in Christchurch with Corey Flynn returning to the starting line up.
Head Coach Todd Blackadder has made three changes to the starting fifteen who played the Chiefs last weekend.
Corey Flynn returns from an injury to his hamstring to take the number two jersey moving Ben Funnell to the bench.
A fractured finger for Sam Whitelock gives Dominic Bird the opportunity to start alongside Luke Romano while Jimmy Tupou comes onto the bench.
In the backs the jostle for halfback position see's Willi Heinz make the starting fifteen and Andy Ellis move to the bench.
