Locks changed by Hurricanes and Crusaders
April 6, 2000
The Super 12 clash in Wellington on Friday sees the Hurricanes' Dion Waller and the Crusaders' Steve Lancaster return for injured colleagues.
Hurricanes' blindside flanker Campbell Feather, injured against the Blues last weekend, sees his place go to Inoke Afeaki, thus creating a vacancy in the second row. 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.
The full sides :
