MacDonald comes in for Highlanders




Highlanders Coach Greg Cooper has made just the one change for his team’s trip to Canberra to take on the Brumbies who are looking very much like they will be in the Semis.

The only change is the return of Hoani MacDonald to the blindside flanker’s position which pushes Hale T-Pole on to the bench.

The Highlanders have had a dissapointing season after Nick Evans was ruled out and they have now lost three of their last four matches so they will be playing for pride in this match.
