Jane has been ruled out with a hamstring injury.

Jane has said on social media he was selfish when they played the Chiefs as his hamstring wasn't 100 percent but wanted to play and only thought about himself.

Coach Chris Boyd has named Nehe Milner-Skudder as his replacement on the right wing and given James Marshall the fullback duties.

Loose forward Blade Thomson and winger Matt Proctor have both returned from injury and have been named on the bench.

The Hurricanes last held a semi-final at Westpac Stadium back in 2006, where they clinched a 16-14 win over the Waratahs. Ma'a Nonu is the only current Hurricane to play in that match.

Kick-off at Westpac Stadium is 7.35pm.
