Todd to lead Crusaders against Bulls
TEAM ANNOUNCEMENT: Crusaders coach Scott Robertson has made four changes to the starting XV, for his team's Super Rugby Round 11 encounter with the Bulls.
In the forwards, Wyatt Crockett wears the No.1 jersey this week, with Joe Moody providing cover off the bench.
Lock Luke Romano comes into the starting line-up - in place of the suspended Sam Whitelock - to pair up with Scott Barrett, while Quinten Strange comes into the replacements.
The loose forward trio will be made up of Pete Samu, Matt Todd - who will also captain the side - and Jordan Taufua, with Heiden Bedwell-Curtis coming into the matchday 23 to provide cover.
In the backs, Mitchell Drummond rotates with Bryn Hall to start at scrumhalf this week, and Tim Bateman comes in at inside centre - with Ryan Crotty taking a spot on the bench.
