Lock Brad Thorn and second five Sonny Bill Williams return to the Crusaders starting line-up for Sunday's Super Rugby match against the Queensland Reds in Brisbane.
Thorn came through 40 minutes of rugby as a replacement in the victory over the Chiefs last weekend... he'd previously been out for three weeks with a calf strain.
Williams has recovered from a bruised knee suffered in the match against the Cheetahs in Bloemfontein two weeks ago and which kept him out of the Chiefs game..
In other changes, Owen Franks goes to tighthead prop ahead of brother Ben.
On the bench loose forward Matt Todd, who missed last weeks game with a corked thigh, is bracketed with Joe Wheeler.
The Reds top the standings and the Crusaders are 4th.
The Crusaders team to play the Reds at Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane on Sunday, May 29, kick-off 4.10pm (6.10pm NZ time), is:
