Round 10 Team Lists

The last game in DHL Super Rugby Pacific's 'Super Round' will see the welcome return of Crusaders and All Blacks midfielder, Jack Goodhue, from the significant knee injury which has sidelined him for the past 12 months. He'll start alongside Braydon Ennor, with David Havili being rested this week. 

There are two further changes in the Crusaders backline to face the Rebels; Mitch Drummond joins the run-on team at halfback in place of Bryn Hall, while Will Jordan will sit out this weekend's match altogether and George Bridge takes the starting spot at fullback.

Sam Whitelock makes a timely return in the absence of regular Captain Scott Barrett (suspension), while there is a reshuffle in the loose forwards with Tom Christie also rested this week, which sees Ethan Blackadder move to openside flanker, and Pablo Matera step into the starting side at six. 

Hooker Codie Taylor will Captain the side in the interim, while Whitelock and first five-eighth, Richie Mo'unga, have been named Vice-Captains.


Kick off in the Crusaders match against the Melbourne Rebels is 6:30pm NZT, Sunday 24th April at AAMI Park in Melbourne. The match will be televised live on Sky Sport.
