The unbeaten Crusaders have preferred Andrew Ellis over All Blacks No.9 Kevin Senio for the scrumhalf matchup with the Waikato Chiefs’ All Black Byron Kelleher in Hamilton.


Coach Robbie Deans said it was a horses-for-courses selection as he wants to use Ellis’ physical presence against the rugged Kelleher. The Chiefs have moved into sixth after strong wins over Australian teams Western Force and Queensland Reds.
