Canes unchanged for Blues

The Hurricanes made no changes to their match 22 for their game against the Blues on Friday.

Head coach Mark Hammett has decided to field the same side that lost 19-17 to the Highlanders in Wellington last week. However, there is one possible change as loosehead prop Ben May is bracketed with Michael Bent. If May is ruled out, Bent will start and Tristan Moran comes on to the bench.

A decision will be made later this week.

Hurricanes - 15 Andre Taylor, 14 Cory Jane, 13 Conrad Smith (c), 12 Tim Bateman, 11 Julian Savea, 10 Beauden Barrett, 9 TJ Perenara, 8 Victor Vito, 7 Jack Lam, 6 Faifili Levave, 5 Jason Eaton, 4 Jeremy Thrush, 3 Jeffery Toomaga-Allen, 2 Dane Coles, 1 Ben May/Michael Bent.
Subs: 16 Motu Matu’u, 17 Michael Bent/Tristan Moran, 18 James Broadhurst, 19 Brad Shields, 20 Chris Eaton, 21 Daniel Kirkpatrick, 22 Charlie Ngatai.
