Crusaders team to play Sharks

There are two changes to the Crusaders team to play the Sharks in the historic Investec Super Rugby match at Twickenham on Sunday, March 27.

Loosehead prop Wyatt Crockett replaces Ben Franks and left wing Zac Guildford comes in for Adam Whitelock.

Guildford came off the substitutes bench in the second half against the Highlanders at Carisbrook last weekend, following a hamstring injury which had kept him out of rugby until that point.
Crusaders first-five Dan Carter is expecting a physical encounter against the Sharks on Sunday afternoon. He said: “They are a team full of big, fast men and it will be a very tough match. They have strengths across the park but we’ve prepared well for them. We are all looking forward to playing at Twickenham – it’s easy to get excited about this one.”
Crusaders head coach Todd Blackadder said: “We have trained well here in London all week and now we want to replicate that against the Sharks at Twickenham on Sunday.
“It will be a big test for us, but I’m confident we can put in a performance to be proud of. We’re looking forward to playing in front of a big crowd – the atmosphere and sense of occasion should be superb.”
About $11 from every ticket sold will be donated to the Red Cross Christchurch Earthquake appeal.
