Crusaders first-five Dan Carter has been ruled out of tomorrow’s Super 14 match against the Cheetahs at AMI Stadium due to a hip joint injury.

The Crusaders’ Official website reports that Carter picked up the injury, which is expected to be only a short-term problem, early in the week.

He was tested at the Crusaders captain’s run this morning and a decision was made to withdraw him from the match.

Dan Bowden, who was initially listed on the reserves bench, will move to the first-five position to make his Crusaders debut.

Wider training group player Tu Umaga-Marshall comes on to the reserves bench. It will be the first time he has been included in the Crusaders match-day squad.

Halfback Andy Ellis, who missed last week’s match against the Waratahs with concussion and was bracketed with Willi Heinz on the bench for tomorrow night’s match, has been ruled out.

Crusaders team to play Cheetahs at AMI Stadium, kick-off 7.35pm:

1. Wyatt Crockett
2. Ti’i Paulo
3. Ben Franks
4. Chris Jack
5. Sam Whitelock
6. George Whitelock
