The Highlanders have named their team to face the Lions on Friday the 26th of March at Carisbrook in Dunedin where they will be looking to bounce back from last week’s loss to the Sharks.


Jason Macdonald has been named on the bench for the Highlanders but if he comes on he will be playing in his 50th Super Rugby game.


The Highlanders will not have Nasi Manu as he is out injured for another week while Tom Donnelly is also still out this week with an ankle injury.


Robbie Robinson gets the number 10 jersey while Michael Hobbs keeps the number 12 jersey and Matt Berquist misses out completely.
