The Hurricanes have named their Super Rugby team to face the Brumbies in Wellington with Tusi Pisi and Brad Shields in the starting line up.
The changes to the starting fifteen this week are the inclusion of Brad Shields at number six and Tusi Pisi coming in at first five-eighth.
Beauden Barrett has moved to the bench after starting all 11 matches this year in order to manage his workload.
Pisi came off the bench against the Highlanders last weekend and is back to full fitness after a calf strain.
This will be Pusi's first start for the Hurricanes since joining the team at the end of March.
On the bench, James Broadhurst returns after recovering from a side strain and Jayden Hayward is in the number 22 jersey.
The Brumbies who lead the Australian conference are the first in a block of three Australian teams that lie ahead of the Hurricanes over the next three weekends.
After the Brumbies, the Hurricanes will host the Rebels in Wellington followed by a trip to Sydney to meet the Waratahs at Queen’s Birthday weekend.
