Crusaders stack bench for Super Rugby opener

6:49 am on 20 February 2014

The Crusaders have loaded their bench with All Blacks for their Super Rugby opener against the Chiefs in Christchurch on Friday.

The 2013 All Blacks, Wyatt Crockett, Luke Romano, Matt Todd, and Tom Taylor have all failed to crack the starting line-up, illustrating the depth in the Crusaders squad.

The captain, Richie McCaw, says having that much competition in the squad will keep the starters on notice.
