Rebels head coach Tony McGahan has named two teams to play the Hurricanes at Simonds Stadium in Geelong this Saturday in a Super Rugby warm up.

All Black centre Tamati Ellison is named for the first time in Rebels colours, after arriving in Melbourne from his Japanese Club commitments, while former Sydney University lock Sam Jeffries has also been named to feature for his new Club for the first time.

Hugh Pyle has been scheduled to feature in both halves after his successful return from injury in the Rebels victory over the Waratahs last weekend, while local Dewar Shield and Moorabbin Rams winger Joe Kamana will again play on the wing after impressing last weekend in Albury.

With temperatures again tipped to sore in Geelong, McGahan will rotate his squad against a Hurricanes side that could feature up to nine All Blacks representatives.
