The Chiefs have been forced into naming a changed team to face the Blues this weekend, with Lelia Masaga and Ben Afeaki missing out due to injury, and a couple of new names coming to the fore.
In the front row, there is a debut for All Black U20 prop Ben Tameifuna, while Asaeli Tikoirotuma comes in on the wing.
There is also a shuffle in the loose trio with Kane Thompson starting in the eighthman jersey.
