The Chiefs have made a few changes to the side that beat the Highlanders last week and will look to take another step towards finishing on top of the overall log when they face the Crusaders this weekend.

Try-scoring front-row sensation Arisona Taumalolo comes back into the number 1 jersey for this game, replacing Toby Smith, who’ll be on the bench. An injury to number 8 Kane Thompson sees Alex Bradley come in at the back of the scrum, while an unforced change in the loose trio sees young Sam Cane start at open side in place of Tanerau Latimer.

The only change in the back line is at centre, with Andrew Horrell replacing Jackson Willison as Sonny Bill Williams’ partner, in the continued absence of first-choice 13 Richard Kahui.

15 Robbie Robinson, 14 Tim Nanai-Williams, 13 Andrew Horrell, 12 Sonny Bill Williams, 11 Aseali Tikoirotuma, 10 Aaron Cruden, 9 Tawera Kerr-Barlow, 8 Alex Bradley, 7 Sam Cane, 6 Liam Messam, 5 Brodie Retallick, 4 Craig Clarke (capt), 3 Ben Tameifuna, 2 Mahonri Schwalger, 1 Sona Taumalolo.
Reserves: 16 Hika Elliot, 17 Toby Smith, 18 Romana Graham, 19 Tanerau Latimer, 20 Brendon Leonard, 21 Jackson Willison, 22 Lelia Masaga.
