Planet Rugby reports under siege Hurricanes coach Mark Hammett has made 4 changes to his squad for their clash against the Cheetahs this weekend.

Coach Hammett has included 19-year-old Beauden Barrett in his squad to face the Cheetahs on Saturday.

With fly-half Aaron Cruden ruled out due to an Achilles strain, Barrett comes in on the bench as back up to Daniel Kirkpatrick who will be wearing the number ten jersey.

Centre Conrad Smith fractured his nose against the Brumbies and as a result joins Cruden on the sidelines. The All Black is replaced by Jayden Hayward.

The two further changes are both in the pack where James Broadhurst replaces Jason Eaton in the second row and Michael Bent comes in for Neemia Tialata at prop.

Full-back Cory Jane is still on paternity leave and is expected to join the team in South Africa on Monday while Piri Weepu (ankle), Karl Lowe (knee), Laurence Corlett (calf), and Rodney So’oialo (lower back) were not considered due to injury.

Hurricanes: 15 Andre Taylor, 14 Alapati Leiua, 13 Jayden Hayward, 12 Ma’a Nonu, 11 Hosea Gear, 10 Daniel Kirkpatrick, 9 Tyson Keats, 8 Victor Vito, 7 Serge Lilo, 6 Jack Lam, 5 James Broadhurst, 4 Jeremy Thrush, 3 Michael Bent, 2 Andrew Hore (captain), 1 John Schwalger.
Replacements: 16 Dane Coles, 17 Neemia Tialata, 18 Jason Eaton, 19 Faifili Levave, 20 Chris Eaton, 21 Beauden Barrett, 22 Charlie Ngatai.
