Saders make changes for Chiefs

Crusaders coach Todd Blackadder has named his side to face the Chiefs in Napier and it contains a number of changes to the unit that went down unexpectedly against the Highlanders in week 2.

Owen Franks and Corey Flynn will replace Quentin MacDonald and Wyatt Crockett in the starting 15, with the latter pair moving to the bench. Ben Franks moves from tighthead prop to loosehead to accommodate his brother in the number 3 jersey. Luke Romano comes into the second row to partner Tom Donnelly, demoting Sam Whitelock to the wood where he will sit next to brother Luke.

With two other Whitelocks still in the starting team (flanker George and centre Adam) there’s not need for this great Canterbury rugby family to feel under-represented, though!

In the final change, Zac Guildford will start at left wing, forcing a back-three shuffle that sees Israel Dagg move to 14, Sean Matiland at fullback and Tom Marshall dropped to the bench.

1. Ben Franks
2. Corey Flynn
