The Highlanders have made one change to the starting team that beat the Sharks last weekend for this week's Super Rugby match against the Southern Kings in Port Elizabeth.

Fijian wing Tino Nemani comes in to the starting line up on his Highlanders debut after playing four games for the Chiefs last season.

The twenty-one-year-old Fijian born player replaces Phil Burleigh on the right wing as he injured his shoulder and stayed back in New Zealand.

There was over No.8 TJ Ioane who had a calf niggle but he has been cleared to play.

The only other change to the squad is the return of Mose Tuiali'i on the replacements bench taking Elliot Dixon's place.

Highlanders:

Ben Smith, Tino Nemani, Tamati Ellison, Shaun Treeby, Hosea Gear, Colin Slade, Aaron Smith, TJ Ioane, John Hardie, Jarrad Hoeata, Josh Bekhuis, Brad Thorn, Chris King, Andrew Hore (capt), Tony Woodcock.

Replacements : Liam Coltman, Maafu Fia, Mose Tuialii, Joe Wheeler, Fumiaki Tanaka, Hayden Parker, Jason
