Highlanders’ Head Coach, Jamie Joseph has made one change to the team that beat the Rebels for their clash with the Stormers.


Joseph has brought Andrew Hore in to the starting line up which means that Jason Rutledge drops down to the reserves.


Jimmy Cowan will make his 100th appearance for the franchise if he takes the field, only the second player to reach this momentous achievement, following former Highlanders’ Captain Anton Oliver who played 127 games for the franchise.


Hooker Jason Rutledge will also reach the milestone of 50 games if he takes the field tomorrow night.


Mike Delany has joined the Highlanders this week and is not ready to play. It is hoped that he will be fit to play against the Blues following the Highlanders bye week.
