The Highlanders have named their team to face the Force this weekend on Saturday at Queenstown in the first match on Saturday in Round 9.

The match is being played at Queenstown earlier in the day which normally means there will be more running rugby than usual.

Chris King will be celebrating his 50th game for the Highlanders.

Injuries have prevented the Highlanders from naming their first choice team as Tom Donnelly is still out this week with his ankle injury.

Jamie Mackintosh was also unavailable to play against the Force as he has a foot injury.
