Crusaders coach Todd Blackadder's upbeat, despite being without a trio of All Blacks for Saturday's Super Rugby game against the Hurricanes.
Dan Carter, Kieran Read and Israel Dagg have all been ruled out with injuries picked up in the series against Ireland.
Blackadder says apart from Tom Marshall, the rest of the side are raring to go.
"All selectable and available so as far as that goes I'm pretty pleased with that."
Richie McCaw captains the side from number eight, while Tom Taylor fills in at pivot and Sean Maitland drops to fullback.
Ben and Owen Franks, Luke Romano, Sam Whitelock and Zac Guildford all return to the 22 after All Black duty.
