Crusaders head coach Scott Robertson has named a team with four changes for this Sunday’s Super Rugby match against the Waratahs in Sydney.
All of Robertson’s changes are in the forwards as he has retained the back line that played against the Force last week.
Joe Moody returns to the line-up to start at loosehead prop, with Wyatt Crockett covering on the bench.
Scott Barrett, who had a successful outing at 6 last week, moves back into his more familiar position of lock alongside Sam Whitelock, with Luke Romano in the reserves.
Jordan Taufua shifts to 6 and Whetu Douglas returns at Number 8.
