The Crusaders have named their team to take the trip to Wellington and take on the Hurricanes this weekend, with flyhalf Dan Carter again selected in the 12 jersey, and this in his hundredth Super Rugby match.
Tom Taylor will continue in the ten jersey after a superb performance against the Stormers last weekend, in which the Cape side’s unbeaten tag was lost.
The only change to the team that beat the Stormers comes on the wing, where Adam Whitelock gets a run in place of Sean Maitland, who picked up an ankle injury against the Stormers.
It is quite a big match for George Whitelock as well, who will be celebrating his 50th Super Rugby cap, along with Owen Franks, who will earn his half century off the bench.
Crusaders: 1. Wyatt Crockett , 2. Corey Flynn, 3. Ben Franks, 4. Tom Donnelly, 5. Samuel Whitelock, 6. George Whitelock, 7. Matt Todd, 8. Kieran Read, 9. Andy Ellis, 10. Tom Taylor, 11. Zac Guildford, 12. Dan Carter, 13. Robbie Fruean, 14. Adam Whitelock, 15. Israel Dagg.
Reserves: 16. Quentin MacDonald, 17. Owen Franks, 18. Luke Romano, 19. Luke Whitelock, 20. Willi Heinz, 21. Ryan Crotty, 22. Tom Marshall.Tweet
