The Chiefs tackle the Lions in Hamilton this weekend, with a few changes made amongst the forwards in an attempt to give a few players some time off the field. Try scoring machine, Arizona Tuamalolo on the bench, but sure to make an impact later in the game.

His place has been taken by Toby Smith, while Brodie Retallick gets a rest with Michael Fitzgerald starting the game. Liam Messam is out with a rib injury, being replaced by Sam Cane who joins Tanerau Latimer and Kane Thompson in the loose trio.

Chiefs: 1. Toby Smith, 2. Hika Elliot, 3. Ben Tameifuna, 4. Craig Clarke (c), 5. Michael Fitzgerald, 6. Tanerau Latimer, 7. Sam Cane, 8. Kane Thompson, 9. Brendon Leonard, 10. Aaron Cruden, 11. Asaeli Tikoirotuma, 12. Sonny Bill Williams, 13. Richard Kahui, 14. Lelia Masaga, 15. Andrew Horrell

Replacements: 16. Mahonri Schwalger, 17. Arizona Taumalolo, 18. Alex Bradley, 19. Scott Waldrom, 20. Tawera Kerr- Barlow, 21. Jackson Willison, 22. Maritino Nemani

  • the lions wont pitch up on tour as they will probably save their best performance for the sharks at coca cola park.. 😐
