The Crusaders have been forced into a late change as fullback Israel Dagg has been withdrawn from the team to play the Stormers.
Dagg missed last weekend's Super Rugby match against the Southern Kings and has been withdrawn as a precautionary measure as a result of a tight hamstring.
As a result of Dagg's withdrawal Tom Marshall will move to fullback while Zac Guildford will take up the wing.
Shane Christie moves onto the bench, giving him the opportunity to make his debut for the Crusaders if he makes the field.
