Crusaders Head Coach Todd Blackadder has named the same team that beat the Waratahs last weekend for their match against the Reds in Christchurch.
There is however one potential change as Sean Maitland who has been recovering from a high ankle injury will have a late fitness test.
Maitlandís inclusion on the wing is subject to his full participation in training on Friday so he could be replaced by Adam Whitelock.
The Crusaders will play in a specially-made St John jersey and all of the jerseys will be signed by the players and auctioned on Trade Me.
Funds raised will go towards funding St Johnís support of community rugby in the Crusaders franchise area.
The jerseys are open for bidding on Trade Me now (listed under sports/rugby/apparel/jerseys) and the auction will run until next Thursday night.
