New Zealand make one change for Rugby World Cup semi-final against South Africa

New Zealand make one enforced change for Saturday's Rugby World Cup semi-final against South Africa, with Joe Moody coming in for Wyatt Crockett at loose-head prop.

New Zealand coach Steve Hansen has been forced into one change for Saturday's Rugby World Cup semi-final against South Africa at Twickenham.

It comes in the front row as prop Wyatt Crockett misses out due to a groin injury suffered during last weekend's quarter-final victory over France.

Joe Moody takes Crockett's place at loose-head prop, with Ben Franks being promoted to the bench.

Winger Julian Savea is the World Cup's leading try-scorer with eight, and he will set a new record for tries at a single tournament if he goes over against the Springboks.

New Zealand: B Smith; N Milner-Skudder, C Smith, M Nonu, J Savea; D Carter, A Smith; J Moody, D Coles, O Franks, B Retallick, S Whitelock, J Kaino, R McCaw, K Read
Replacements: K Mealamu, B Franks, C Faumuina, V Vito, S Crane, T Kerr-Barlow, B Barrett, SB Williams
