The Hurricanes have named their Super Rugby team to face the Highlanders in their first visit to the new Forsyth Barr Stadium in Dunedin.
Hurricanes coach Mark Hammett has made a couple of changes to the team as Reggie Goodes will have his first run on for the Hurricanes since making his debut for the franchise two weeks ago.
The 20 year-old had to undergo a rehab programme at the start of the season to overcome a shoulder injury suffered in their final pre-season match.
Now after two appearances off the bench, Goodes will make his first start in the number one jersey. The South African born prop made his debut for Wellington in 2010 but this is his first Super Rugby campaign.
The only other changes to the Hurricanes line-up are Charlie Ngatai bracketed with Tim Bateman at second five-eighth and Tusi Pisi bracketed with Daniel Kirkpatrick on the bench.
