The Crusaders have called a surprise "important'' news conference for later this afternoon.

There's no mention of what the announcement may be about, although coach Todd Blackadder is to front the media.

That suggests it's a team issue, with several possibilities being addressed.

Fullback Israel Dagg's future with the franchise is up in the air and it's understood he is unlikely to be back in 2014.

Daniel Carter has also been listed as being available at tomorrow's red and blacks' media opportunity, sparking the possibility there may be plans for a sabbatical next year.
