The Hurricanes have named their team to face the Crusaders in a Super Rugby match at the New AMI Stadium in Christchurch on Saturday.

The Hurricanes match in Christchurch this weekend will be their first match in the Garden City since 2009.

All Black injuries have played a part in the selections for both teams but the Hurricanes will be without Victor Vito (knee) and Cory Jane (ankle) as they are yet to overcome their respective injuries.

Jack Lam (slight hamstring strain) has been bracketed with Karl Lowe for the number seven jersey.

The Hurricanes are currently in sixth place in the Super Rugby standings on 45 points and the Crusaders are fourth on the table with 51 competition points

The Hurricanes have a bye next weekend before returning to Westpac Stadium on Friday 13th July for their final regular season match against the Chiefs.
