The Hurricanes team to take on the Brumbies this weekend has been announced, with a few changes from the team that beat the Highlanders last weekend.

The All Black training group rookies Brad Shields and Beauden Barrett are the changes where Shields comes into the starting fifteen while Barrett gets a break after starting eleven games straight so far this season.

The form back three of the tournament, Savea, Jane and Taylor, will run at the Brumbies all night, and we should see one or all of them getting involved in the try scoring stakes.

The Hurricanes have a playoff spot firmly in their sight as they are only two points behind the Sharks, who sit in sixth spot, and with three Australian teams in three consecutive weekends for the Canes, they will be pulling out all the stops to pick up 12 points at least before the break in Super Rugby.

Hurricanes: 1. Reggie Goodes,2. Dane Coles,3. Ben May,4. Jeremy Thrush,5. Jason Eaton,6. Brad Shields,7. Karl Lowe,8. Victor Vito,9. TJ Perenara,10. Tusi Pisi,11. Julian Savea,12. Tim Bateman,13. Conrad Smith (c) ,14. Cory Jane,15. Andre Taylor

Replacements : 16. Motu Matu’u,17. Jeffery Toomaga-Allen,18. James Broadhurst,19. Jack Lam,20. Chris Eaton,21. Beauden Barrett,22. Jayden Hayward
