Hurricanes coach Mark Hammett has selected new faces at blindside flank and fullback for this weekend’s game against the Brumbies in Wellington.

Regular number 6 Faifili Levave is out injured this week, meaning a first start for rookie Adam Hill, who made a bit of a hash off his Super Rugby debut a fortnight ago when yellow carded for a tip tackle mere minutes after taking the field as a replacement against the Sharks.

The other change sees James Marshall start at fullback, switching places with the bench-bound Marty Banks.

Hurricanes: 15 James Marshall, 14 Cory Jane, 13 Conrad Smith (c), 12 Hadleigh Parkes, 11 Julian Savea, 10 Beauden Barrett, 9 TJ Perenara, 8 Blade Thomson, 7 Jack Lam, 6 Adam Hill, 5 Mark Reddish, 4 Jeremy Thrush, 3 John Schwalger, 2 Dane Coles, 1 Ben Franks.
Replacements : 16 Motu Matu’u, 17 Chris Eves, 18 Jeffery Toomaga-Allen, 19 James Broadhurst, 20 Ardie Savea, 21 Chris Smylie, 22 Alapati Leiua, 23 Marty Banks.
