Hurricanes coach Mark Hammett has named a largely unchanged team to face the Blues at Westpac Stadium in Wellington on Friday.
The only change from the team that beat the Bulls in Napier before the bye last week is the inclusion of Reggie Goodes, who comes in at prop for Ben Franks.
Franks has been ruled out with a groin strain, while Brad Shields took a knock to the knee on Monday which has kept him off the team sheet.
Backs Tim Bateman and Chris Smylie return to the reserves after injury spells, while Motu Matu’u, Ardie Savea and Matt Proctor have also been named in the replacements.
