    The 2020 Super Rugby squads have been revealed

    The 2020 Super Rugby squads have been revealed

    The Crusaders have looked to the other side of the scrum for their new captain.

    Scott Barrett takes over from locking partner Sam Whitelock, who will spend the first part of next year playing in Japan.

    Barrett will guide a squad with 12 players on their first full-time contracts, a number only matched by the Highlanders.

    The Blues have limited outside back depth, with Matt Duffie the sole survivor from 2019 as Rieko Ioane has been named as a midfielder.
