The Hurricanes have made six changes to the team that lost to the Brumbies in Wellington last weekend for this week's clash against the Rebels.
Hurricanes coach Mark Hammett has brought back Beauden Barrett and Faifili Levave to the starting fifteen.
Out on the wing Alapati Leiua comes in to wear the number 14 jersey.
In the forwards Jack Lam will start at openside flanker and Jeffery Toomaga-Allen will start at tighthead prop with Ben May moving over to the loosehead side.
The Hurricanes will not be taking the Rebels lightly as they are on a two match winning streak having beaten the Crusaders and the Force.
