The Crusaders have made two changes to their starting line-up for Friday night's Super 14 rugby match against the ACT Brumbies in Christchurch.

Owen Franks starts at loosehead prop ahead of Wyatt Crockett and Sam Whitelock is at lock ahead of the All Black Chris Jack for the match where the winner will go through to the semi-finals.

The Crusaders head coach Todd Blackadder says Owen Franks and Whitelock deserve their starting spots after playing very well last weekend.

In the reserves. halfback Willi Heinz replaces Kahn Fotuali'i, who's been stood down for one match for breaching a recovery protocol after the loss to the Bulls in Pretoria.
