Chiefs team announced for Crusaders clash

The Chiefs have announced their team to play the Crusaders in Christchurch.

The New Zealand derby is one of the most anticipated matches of the Super Rugby round robin competition with both teams coming off solid wins last week.

Dave Rennie has made four changes to his starting line-up.  Prop Ben Tameifuna will start with Ben Afeaki moving to the pine.  Sam Cane and Charlie Ngatai will start at flanker and centre respectively and Patrick Osborne on the right wing with Tanerau Latimer and Tim Nanai-Williams moving to the bench.   The match will be Tim Nanai-Williams 50th match for Chiefs. 

Dave Rennie said “The Crusaders are a quality side.  They will be desperate so we know they are going to be huge challenge down in Christchurch.”
