    Coach Scott Robertson has kept tinkering to a minimum as the Crusaders look to respond from last weekend's upset loss to the Highlanders

    Coach Scott Robertson has kept tinkering to a minimum as the Crusaders look to respond from last weekend's upset loss to the Highlanders


    The defending champions will face the Hurricanes away in Sunday's Super Rugby Aotearoa match.

    George Bridge starts on the left wing with Leicester Fainga'anuku dropping to the reserves.

    Ethan Blackadder is out with a neck strain so Whetukamokamo Douglas starts at blindside flanker - Tom Sanders is over his broken cheekbone and on the bench.

    Robertson says there's no drama around Blackadder's injury.



    Oli Jager will start at tighthead with Michael Alaalatoa slipping to the subs.
