    An All Blacks merry go round for the Crusaders

    An All Blacks merry go round for the Crusaders


    Prop Owen Franks, hooker Codie Taylor and lock Scott Barrett have all been rested for Saturday's Super Rugby match against the Blues in Christchurch, while prop Joe Moody is still struggling with a knee injury.

    Jordan Taufua returns to the starting side at blindside flanker, while Israel Dagg's been named at fullback after missing the match-day squad in the win over the Highlanders.

    Coach Scott Robertson says despite David Havili's superb recent form, Dagg deserves a crack.



    Mitchell Drummond will start at halfback ahead of Bryn Hall.
