Dan Carter will start his first match of the season against the Lions on Saturday night as the Crusaders attempt to build on their win over the Cheetahs at home in week five. The seven time Super Rugby champions have won just two of four matches this season and find themselves in the unfamiliar position of being fourth in the New Zealand conference, but will be boosted by the return of the star All Black. Skipper Richie McCaw is still out for them though, and they have won just two of their past seven matches in South Africa.
The injury ravaged QLD Reds face the Western Force at nib Stadium on Saturday night, while the Stormers , the only unbeaten team in the competition, take on the Bulls in Cape Town.
