Rennie happy with his options at seven

The Chiefs can field a largely settled side for a change, in tomorrow night's top of the local table Super Rugby clash with the Crusaders in Hamilton.

There are just two changes to the starting side from the Chiefs outfit that beat the Hurricanes in Wellington, with All Blacks prop Ben Afeaki out with a minor calf strain, he's replaced by Ben Tameifuna, while wing Patrick Osbourne gets his chance to start against his old team the Crusaders.

Tanerau Latimer has again won the battle to wear the openside flanker's jersey from the All Black incumbent Sam Cane and the Chiefs coach Dave Rennie is more than happy with his options at No.7.

Rennie believes they have the best two sevens in the country who are both on top of their game.
