Whitelock returns to lead Crusaders
TEAM ANNOUNCEMENT: Crusaders head coach Scott Robertson has made just two changes to the team that beat the Hurricanes last week for their clash against the Chiefs in Suva in Fiji.
Captain Samuel Whitelock returns at lock, replacing the injured Scott Barrett, and scrumhalves Mitchell Drummond and Bryn Hall rotate so that Hall takes the starting spot this week.
The sight of Fijian-born uncle and nephew, Seta Tamanivalu and Manasa Mataele, storming down the wing will no doubt be something that the local fans are looking forward to.
The Chiefs enter this week's match on the back of a bye in Round 12.
