McLeod to make Crusaders Super rugby debut against Reds




Crusaders Super rugby head coach Scott Robertson has named Dallas McLeod to make his Super rugby debut in the midfield when the team play the Reds in Christchurch on Friday.

There is only one change to the forward pack that started against the Highlanders two weeks ago, with Captain Scott Barrett returning to lead the side, following the knee injury he sustained against the Blues in round three.

In the backs, Ereatara Enari earns his first start of the 2020 season and, with both Braydon Ennor and David Havili being rested this week, there is a reshuffle in the backs which sees George Bridge move to fullback and Leicester Faingaanuku promoted to a starting spot on the left wing.

Twenty-year old Dallas McLeod will make his Super Rugby debut on Friday, when he lines up in the midfield alongside Jack Goodhue, in what will be Goodhue’s 50th appearance for the Crusaders.


15 George Bridge, 14 Sevu Reece, 13 Jack Goodhue, 12 Dallas McLeod, 11 Leicester Faingaanuku, 10 Richie Mo’unga, 9 Ere Enari, 8 Tom Sanders, 7 Tom Christie, 6 Cullen Grace, 5 Mitchell Dunshea, 4 Scott Barrett (c), 3 Michael Alaalatoa, 2 Codie Taylor, 1 Joe Moody

Substitutes: 16 Brodie McAlister, 17 George Bower, 18 Oliver Jager, 19 Luke Romano, 20 Sione Havili, 21 Mitchell Drummond, 22 Brett Cameron, 23 Manasa Mataele
