Crusaders Super Rugby head coach Coach Scott Robertson has named a team with four changes to the starting team that beat the Cheetahs last week for this weekend’s match against the Bulls in Pretoria.

In the forwards, Wyatt Crockett wears the number 1 jersey this week with Joe Moody providing cover off the bench.

Lock Luke Romano comes into the starting line up to pair up with Scott Barrett, while Quinten Strange comes into the reserves.

The loose forward trio will be made up of Pete Samu, Matt Todd and Jordan Taufua, with Heiden Bedwell-Curtis coming into the 23 to provide cover.

In the backs, Mitchell Drummond rotates with Bryn Hall to start at halfback this week, and Tim Bateman comes in at second five with Ryan Crotty taking a spot on the bench.

The last time these two teams met was also in Pretoria in 2015, and on that occasion the Bulls came away with the win (31-19).
