The Crusaders team to face the Stormers this weekend has been announced, with Tom Taylor selected above Dan Carter in the flyhalf position, with Carter instead shifting to inside centre to join Robbie Fruean in midfield.
Tom Donnely returns to the second row where he replaces Luke Romano, who drops to the bench while the Franks brother swop again, with Ben getting his turn to start at 3.
The thinking behind the shift of Dan Carter to inside centre is somewhat unknown, but will give the Crusaders options in terms of kicking at goal, with Carter still not back to his best.
