Dagg back in the No.15 jersey for Hurricanes game

The Crusaders have made three changes to the starting lineup which lost to the Blues last weekend for Friday night's Super Rugby match against the Hurricanes in Wellington.

Israel Dagg returns to his favoured fullback position after a patchy performance on the left wing.

Johnny McNicholl, who returns from injury, and Tom Marshall will play on the wings, meaning Adam Whitelock and Tom Taylor drop to the reserves bench.

In the forward pack Dominic Bird replaces lock Luke Romano, who has a rib injury.
