Hooker Taylor out of Drua clash

All Blacks and Crusaders hooker Cordie Taylor will miss Friday’s Super Rugby Pacific clash against the Swire Shipping Fijian Drua.

The 31-year-old suffered a rib cartilage sprain in the first half of the 37-26 win over the Brumbies in Canberra last weekend,

Ricky Jackson is expected to start in the number two jersey and face off against the Drua's Zuriel Togiatama who played a big role in their 34-19 win over Moana Pasifika at Commbank Stadium in Sydney last Saturday.

The Crusaders host the Fijian Drua at 7.05pm at Orangetheory Stadium in Christchurch.
