The West Stand at Christchurch Stadium has been renamed the ‘Ryan Crotty Stand’ for this match, and members of Ryan’s New Brighton Rugby Club and former school, Shirley Boys’ High School, have been invited to attend.

There are just two changes to the team this week, with Vice-Captain Matt Todd returning to the starting side in place of Billy Harmon, and Bryn Hall, in his 50th Crusaders game, also moving to the starting line up. Ereatara Enari will provide cover at halfback.

It’s also a welcome return to play for prop Tim Perry, who makes his Super Rugby return following an arm injury. Perry has been named in the No. 17 jersey.
