Planet Rugby reports scrum-half Aaron Smith will make his first start of the season when the Highlanders face the Rebels on Friday.

Smith, who turned out for the New Zealand Maoris last season, replaces All Black Jimmy Cowan who is named amongst the replacements.

Smith’s promotion from the bench is the only change to the side which beat the Cheetahs 24-12 last time out.

The Highlanders are currently sitting in seventh spot on the overall Super Rugby table and third in the New Zealand conference with 25 points, while the Rebels are ninth overall with 19 points which sees them sitting in third spot in the Australian conference.

Date: Friday 15 April
Venue: AAMI Park
Kick-off: 19.40 (09.40 GMT)
Referee: Garratt Williamson (New Zealand)
