    2017-03-31 08:41

    Sydney - Crusaders head coach Scott Robertson has made three changes, including two positional switches, to his pack for Sunday's clash with the Waratahs in Sydney.

    Joe Moody returns to the starting line-up to start at loosehead prop, with Wyatt Crockett covering on the bench.

    Scott Barrett, who had a successful outing on the blindside flank in last weekend's win over the Western Force in Christchurch, moves back into his more familiar position of lock alongside Sam Whitelock, with Luke Romano in the reserves. 

    Jordan Taufua shifts to six and Whetu Douglas returns at number eight.

    The backline is unchanged.
