The Crusaders front row stocks continues to be tested with Joe Moody returning home with a knee injury.
George Bower will start at loosehead against the Stormers at Newlands on Sunday morning.
Moody suffered a cut to his knee, which required stitches, playing against the Bulls last weekend.
He joins fellow props Owen Franks and Tim Perry on the sidelines.
Meanwhile, Ethan Blackadder starts on the blindside, with Jordan Taufua shifting to the bench.
The Crusaders’ backline remains unchanged.
