    Carter returns for Crusaders

    2012-03-22 11:12
    Christchurch - Israel Dagg returns to fullback, two Whitelock brothers are back in the pack and Dan Carter is back in the mix for the Crusaders team to play the Cheetahs in their Vodacom Super Rugby match in Christchurch on Saturday.

    Kick-off is at 08:35 SA time.

    The Crusaders are returning to Christchurch for the first time in nearly two years because of disruptions caused by the February 22, 2011 earthquake, and coach Todd Blackadder has tweaked the side which lost 24-19 to the Chiefs in their last outing.

    Crusaders management are urging locals to pack out the just-completed 18 000-seat Christchurch Stadium in Addington to mark the occasion on Saturday.
