Good news for both the Crusaders and the All Blacks.
Kieran Read's rib injury isn't as bad as first thought, although Crusaders coach Todd Blackadder says he won't get a run against the Force on Saturday.
Crusaders coach Todd Blackadder is mulling over his loose forward options. He says he has a number of things to consider.
"Just toying with whether I keep Richie at seven or I put him at eight, or I put Luke Whitelock at eight with Matt Todd, I'm still mulling over which is the right thing for the team."
Blackadder will name his side on Thursday.
