Crusaders head coach Scott Robertson has made just one change to his starting 15 for tomorrow’s Super Rugby final against the Lions in Christchurch.
In the number six jersey, Heiden Bedwell-Curtis will start in place of the injured loose forward Jordan Taufua, who fractured his arm in the semi-final victory over the Hurricanes.
Last weekend’s reserve hooker, Seb Siataga, also fractured his arm in that match and has been replaced by Sam Anderson-Heather as back-up to Codie Taylor.
In total, 19 of the Crusaders’ matchday 23 named for this Saturday, were also involved in last year’s final against the same opposition in Johannesburg.
The Crusaders takes on the Lions at 7.35pm tomorrow and you can catch the match from 8.30pm on FBC TV.
