Sevu Reece set to start, Bower out

Fiji-born All Blacks star winger Sevu Reece will start for the Crusaders against fellow country man Swire Shipping Fijian Drua in Round 14 of Super Rugby Pacific tomorrow.
 
Reece retained his spot in the side after a hats-off performance and try set ups in their 37-26 win against the Brumbies last week.
 
Another Fijian George Bower will miss the clash with Drua as he has been rested while Codie Taylor is out due to a rib cartilage sprain and they will be replaced by prop Finlay Brewis and hooker Ricky Jackson.
 
All Blacks centre Braydon Ennor will make his 50th appearance and will partner fellow international Jack Goodhue in the midfield.
 
Richie Mo'unga, David Havili and Will Jordan also get a week off, with Fergus Burke, Goodhue and Chay Fihaki taking their positions in the match.
 
The Crusaders will take on the Drua at 7.05pm at Orangetheory Stadium in Christchurch on Friday.
 
Crusaders: Chay Fihaki, Sevu Reece, Braydon Ennor, Jack Goodhue, Leicester Fainga’anuku, Fergus Burke, Bryn Hall, Ethan Blackadder, Tom Christie, Scott Barrett (C), Sam Whitelock, Zach Gallagher, 3 Fletcher Newell, Ricky Jackson, Finlay Brewis
 
Replacements: Shilo Klein, Tamaiti Williams, Oli Jager, Dominic Gardiner, Corey Kellow, Mitch Drummond, Simon Hickey, George Bridge
