Highlanders rest big names for Cats




The Highlanders have named their team to play the Cats in Invercargill, on Saturday 25th March, kick-off 7:35pm NZ time.

They have rested Carl Hayman, Tom Donnelly and midfielder Seilala Mapusua by putting them on the bench but kept them in the team just in case the Cats hit form.

Josh Blackie comes straight back in after winning Gold in the Commonweath Sevens.

The Highlanders have lost their last two matches having gone down to the Bulls and and then the Sharks last week so this match comes at a nice time for the Highlanders who can get back to winning ways against one of the weaker sides in the Super 14.
