Cats team to face Crusaders




The Cats have named their team to face the Crusaders who are unbeaten and are currently top of the log.

Conrad Jantjes makes his return to a very troubled side. Springbok Lawrence Sephaka is still not named in the starting 22 yet the player is deemed good enough by the South African national coach Jake White.

Earl Rose will start again at number 10 after a relatively good performance on his part. Lukas Van Biljon has paid the price of being dropped for his poor defensive effort on the 5m line last week. In his place Delarey du Preez starts.

Last week the Waratahs slaughtered the Cats 50-3 and whilst taking nothing away from the Waratahs the Cats look like they are truly up against it this week. The Crusaders have a sharper edge and they have enough depth to put players like Richie McCaw on the bench.

It is very hard to see the Cats being competitive at all this week so expect a similar score to last weeks.
