More All Blacks set to return for Crusaders
NEWS: The Crusaders are set to be at full strength for their Super Rugby quarterfinal clash against the Highlanders in Christchurch on Saturday.
The Crusaders' front row of Joe Moody, Codie Taylor and Owen Franks are all set to return to Super Rugby action for next weekend's play-off.
The trio were rested during Round 17 after their heavy workload for the All Blacks during the recent British and Irish Lions series.
The Crusaders are also set to have veteran centre Ryan Crotty back for the clash against the Highlanders.
Crotty has been out with a hamstring injury since the first Test against the British and Irish Lions.
Crotty's return will probably see David Havili move back to his preferred position at fullback, with Israel Dagg moving to the wing.
Lock Samuel Whitelock, who started on the bench during his side's 22-31 loss to the Hurricanes in Round 17, is also set to get his starting place back in the team.
