Crusaders make two changes for Chiefs




Crusaders Super Rugby head coach Scott Robertson has named a team with two changes for this Friday’s match against the Chiefs in Suva, Fiji.

Crusaders captain Sam Whitelock returns at lock, replacing the injured Scott Barrett, and halfbacks Mitchell Drummond and Bryn Hall rotate so that Hall takes the starting spot this week.

The sight of Fijian-born uncle and nephew, Seta Tamanivalu and Manasa Mataele, storming down the wing will no doubt be something that the local fans are looking forward to.
