The Super 12 clash in Wellington on Friday sees the Hurricanes' Dion Waller and the Crusaders' Steve Lancaster return for injured colleagues.

Dion Waller is back after sitting on the subs' bench last week. Matua Parkinson has recovered from his dislocated elbow and returns to the subs' bench.
For the Crusaders, Steve Lancaster replaces All Black Norm Maxwell , who is nursing a shoulder injury.
