Mitchell Dunshea and Braydon Ennor have replaced injured Crusaders duo Ryan Crotty and Scott Barrett in Saturday's Super Rugby final lineup.

The pair are the only changes to the starting team that beat the Hurricanes in an epic semi-final last weekend, with Will Jordan returning from injury on the bench.

Jack Goodhue will shift into inside centre for the clash against the Jaguares with Ennor at 13 while Dunshea pairs up with skipper Sam Whitelock in the second row.

"This is going to be a massive challenge against a tough Jaguares side, and there has been plenty of great energy in our environment this week.

"This is the Jaguares' first final so they'll have plenty of motivation and will be buoyed by the support of their passionate fans.

"The occasion is something we've embraced in our group, it's exciting and really special to be involved in a Final and to play for our friends, family and the people of the Crusaders region on Saturday night."
