    Cape Town - The Crusaders have been forced to make two changes for Saturday's Super Rugby final against the Jaguares in Christchurch.

    Lock Scott Barrett and inside centre Ryan Crotty have both been ruled out of the final with hand injuries.

    Mitchell Dunshea joins captain Sam Whitelock as the starting locks, and Braydon Ennor slots into the midfield alongside Jack Goodhue, in the absence of Crotty.

    Twenty-one-year old Will Jordan returns from injury to re-join the match-day side.

    "This is going to be a massive challenge against a tough Jaguares side, and there has been plenty of great energy in our environment this week," coach Scott Robertson told the Crusaders' official website.

    This is the Jaguares' first final so they'll have plenty of motivation and will be buoyed by the support of their passionate fans. The occasion is something we've embraced in our group, it's exciting and really special to be involved in a final and to play for our friends, family and the people of the Crusaders region on Saturday."

    Saturday's final is scheduled for 09:35 (SA time).
