The Crusaders Development XV have their final match of 2020 this afternoon, where they will play the Highlanders Development side (Bravehearts.)

Co-coaches Reuben Thorne and Mark Brown have named their team for the game at West Taieri Rugby Club, which follows last week's 60-21 victory over Sydney University. 

"There are 13 new faces in the team this week, due to Crusaders and New Zealand Under 20 camp commitments, which presents an exciting opportunity for new players to perform at this level and express themselves," Mark Brown said. 

"This is our last game of the 2020 campaign and the group really wants to finish the season on a positive note against a strong Bravehearts squad. It's going to be a great match up in Dunedin this afternoon."

Kick off in the Crusaders Development XV match against Highlanders Bravehearts is 1:30pm, Saturday 14 March, at West Taieri Rugby Club in Outram.
