Sunwolves Super Rugby coach Mark Hammett has rotated the team that lost to the Reds for this weekend’s match in Canberra against the Brumbies.

Sunwolves team captain Shota Horie returns to the starting line up having been on the bench in recent weeks.

Another notable change is the inclusion of Daisuke Inoue on the replacements bench for his Super Rugby debut.

Riaan Viljoen gets some rare rest fullback and has been rotated on to the replacements bench with Tusi Pisi who is also rested while Yu Tamara starts at 10.

At halfback Yuki Yatomi starts ahead of Atsushi Hiwasa who drops out of the squad.

Horie’s return means that there is a new front row made up of Shinnosuke Kakinaga, Takeshi Kizu and Masataka Mikami at loosehead.

Akihito Yamada changes sides on the wing and Mifiposeti Paea starts in the number 14 jersey. In the second row Hitoshi Ono starts in place of Timothy Bond.
