The Hurricanes team to face the Force this weekend has been announced, with two run on debuts in Jeffery Moomaga-Allen and TJ Perenara. The other change sees Julian Savea start his season on the wing, in place of Michael Bent.

The impressive Tim Bateman has been selected even though he was carrying a hamstring niggle through training, but Alapati Leiua has returned home in a bid to get fit in time for the Hurricanes’ first home match, against the Highlanders next weekend.

The Hurricanes team is as follows:

Ben May, Dane Coles, Jeffery Toomaga-Allen, Jeremy Thrush, Jason Eaton, Faifili Levave, Jack Lam, Victor Vito, TJ Perenara, Beauden Barrett, Julian Savea, Tim Bateman, Conrad Smith (c), Cory Jane, Andre Taylor

Reserves: Motu Matu’u, Michael Bent, James Broadhurst, Brad Shields, Chris Eaton, Daniel Kirkpatrick, Charlie Ngatai
