Super Rugby's leaders the Chiefs have named a strong line up with a couple of changes to the team that beat the Highlanders for this week's much anticipated match against the Crusaders.
Chiefs top try scorer Sona Taumalolo starts at prop and Alex Bradley starts at No 8 replacing Kane Thompson who has a back injury.
Exciting new All Black Sam Cane starts in the No 7 jersey, going head to head with Richie McCaw and Robbie Robinson retains his fullback position while Andrew Horrell replaces Jackson Willison who moves to the bench.
The Chiefs have already qualified for the Super Rugby play off and have won the New Zealand Conference but still have to play for a home play off and the bye in the play offs.
