The Chiefs have announced their team to play the Crusaders at Waikato Stadium this Friday night at 7.35pm.
To help raise awareness of Waikato District Health Board’s child and youth health services Waikids, the Chiefs will tackle their New Zealand Conference match wearing specially-designed one off jerseys branded with the Waikids logo.
Waikids are dedicated to maintaining wellness and preventing sickness from the day a child is born until the day they turn 18.
Chiefs coach Dave Rennie has made two changes to his first XV and three changes to the bench. Ben Tameifuna comes in at prop for Ben Afeaki who is out this week with a calf strain and Patrick Osborne starts on the wing. Toby Smith, Sam Cane and Lelia Masaga move into the reserves.
Bay of Plenty midfielder Kenny Lynn has been bought into the squad as midfield cover.
