Dagg return boosts Saders

Israel Dagg has rejoined the Crusaders squad ahead of their clash against the Force in Perth on Friday.

The All Blacks fullback has been rehabilitating a shoulder injury which required surgery in September.

After playing a half hour of club rugby in Christchurch on Saturday, he has rejoined the Crusaders who have lost David Havili to a hip injury. 

Hooker Ged Robinson has also been called up to replace the injured Ben Funnell.
