Lam’s been with the Hurricanes since 2017, and in that time, he’s scored 32 tries (160 points) for the Hurricanes.

 

The Wellington-based Super Rugby team are now on a three-game winning streak, after dramatically beating the Blues 29 – 17 at Sky Stadium last Weekend.

 

The Hurricanes team to play the Crusaders in Christchurch is:

 

1: Fraser Armstrong 2: Asafo Aumua 3: Tyrel Lomax 4: James Blackwell 5: Scott Scrafton 6: Reed Prinsep 7: Du’Plessis Kirifi 8: Ardie Savea 9: TJ Perenara [C] 10: Jackson Garden-Bachop 11: Ben Lam (50th Hurricanes Game) 12: Ngani Laumape 13: Peter Umaga-Jensen 14: Wes Goosen 15: Jordie Barrett   

RESERVES: Ricky Riccitelli, Tevita Mafileo, Alex Fidow, Isaia Walker-Leawere, Vaea Fifita, Jamie Booth, Vince Aso, Chase Tiatia      

 

Co-captain Dane Coles will not travel with the squad due to a minor back complaint. It means Asafo Aumua takes over the number two jersey, with Ricky Riccitelli on the bench.

 

The rest of the starting XV remains largely unchanged, with the only exception being Wes Goosen who gets the nod ahead of Kobus Van Wyk.

 

On the bench, Chase Tiatia, Tevita Mafileo and Vince Aso come into the fold – with the rest unchanged.
