Crusaders makes change for semi-final
July 26, 2018 5:32 pm
The Crusaders have made one change to their squad for this weekend’s semi-final clash with the Hurricanes, adding a returning All Black front rower at the expense of a retired one.
Head coach Scott Robertson has stuck with the team that clinically ended the Sharks’ season last week in the quarter-finals besides the welcomed return of Joe Moody, who slots into the starting front row for fellow All Black Tim Perry.
Veteran All Black Israel Dagg once again misses the 23-man squad as well.
The entire starting forward pack has experience with the black jersey with Jordan Taufua the only one yet to earn an All Blacks cap despite being named in this year’s squad.
The Crusaders will take on the Hurricanes at 7:35pm tomorrow while the Waratahs plays Lions at 1:05am on Sunday.
You can watch the Crusaders-Hurricanes match live on FBC TV and catch the delayed coverage of Lions-Waratahs game at 2.05am on Sunday on FBC TV.
