Crusaders Head Coach Todd Blackadder has named his team to take on the Hurricanes this Saturday at Christchurch's AMI Stadium with Wyatt Crockett winning his 100th Super Rugby game.
Kieran Read will miss the match due to injury so Richie McCaw moves from his usual No.7 position to No.8 where he played for the All Blacks last weekend against Ireland.
Israel Dagg, Dan Carter and Tom Marshall will also miss the match due to injury.
Carter's hamstring injury gives Tom Taylor the kicking duties and number ten jersey. Tyler Bleyendaal will provide cover for him from the bench.
Sean Maitland comes in as fullback, and Patrick Osborne may get his first run for the Crusaders if he comes off the bench as cover for the backs.
