Head Coach Scott Robertson has named an unchanged forward pack from the side that took the field in Christchurch, and Matt Todd will again captain the team in the absence of Samuel Whitelock.

In the backs, Richie Mo'unga and Ryan Crotty return at first five-eighth and second five-eighth respectively, which sees Mitch Hunt and Braydon Ennor move to the reserves and Jack Goodhue switch back to centre. The final change is at fullback, where David Havili starts in place of Will Jordan, who didn't travel to South Africa due to a foot injury sustained in the Sharks match. 

Kick off in the BNZ Crusaders' Investec Super Rugby match against the Bulls is Friday 10 May, 7:10pm (SAST), at Loftus Versfeld Stadium in Pretoria. The match will be televised live on Sky Sport at 5:10am (NZST), Saturday 11 May.
