    Force v Crusaders - 22 June 2018

    10 players from the Crusaders' squad have been selected in the All Blacks squad for the June Tests.

    The rest of the squad as follows:

    Michael Alaalatoa Prop
    Oliver Jager Prop
    Donald Brighouse Prop
    Wyatt Crockett Loosehead prop
    Ben Funnell Hooker
    Andrew Makalio Hooker
    Luke Romano Lock - (All Blacks)
    Quinten Strange Lock
    Mitchell Dunshea Lock/ Loose Forward
    Heiden Bedwell-Curtis Loose Forward
    Ethan Blackadder Loose Forward
    Billy Harmon Loose forward
    Tom Sanders Loose forward
    Pete Samu Loose Forward - (Wallabies)
    Matt Todd Loose forward - (All Blacks)
    Jack Stratton Halfback
    Mitchell Drummond Halfback
    Bryn Hall Halfback

    Mike Delany First five-eighth
    David Havili Fullback/Second five-eighth
    Seta Tamanivalu Centre

    Tim Bateman Midfield back
    George Bridge Outside back
    Braydon Ennor Wing/Midfield back
    Jone Macilai Wing
    Manasa Mataele Wing
    Israel Dagg Fullback
    Mitchell Hunt Fullback / First Five-Eighth

    Will Jordan Fullback

    Those marked in Red are in the XXIII to play against the Chiefs in the last match before the June Test break.
    Great chance to give the broader squad some game time

    The Crusaders have a big Kiwi following in Perth.
    I can't see the Crusaders letting them down by not fielding their best team for the game against the Force.

    They have 14 players (15, if you include Samu) who could be in the "SR" side and they cover most of the positions (a little short on locks). I'd be wary of any side a NZ team can put out on the park with Super Rugby experience - coming from the ITM Cup, their Super Rugby rookies are streets ahead of ours.

    So I'm not sure that I'd say we'll smash them, but I can think Jeremy Thrush might be licking his lips and raring to go against this side (being a good Hurricanes man!)
