Tomorrow afternoon we travel to Hamilton ahead of our match against the Chiefs on Saturday night. This week 16 fixture will be the last round of the Investec Super Rugby competition before we break for the June International window.

Razor has named his side for the match, which sees a reshuffle in both the loose forwards and the midfield. Prop Joe Moody returns, joining Codie Taylor and Michael Alaalatoa in the front row. Wyatt Crockett, in his 200th Crusaders game, will provide cover on the bench. Scott Barrett is set to play his 50th Crusaders game, and will line up alongside Quinten Strange at lock. Matt Todd will again resume the captaincy this week. Jordan Taufua comes back in at No. 8, which means Heiden Bedwell-Curtis moves to blindside flanker.

Jack Goodhue will start at second five-eighth and Seta Tamanivalu moves in-field to centre. Following his successful return to club rugby last weekend, Israel Dagg takes a spot on the right wing. We will also welcome back winger Jone Macilai who is returning from injury and will wear the No. 23 jersey.

Kick off is 7:35pm, Saturday 2 June, at FMG Stadium in Hamilton.
