Fairbrother comes in for Schwalger

6:56 pm on 26 September 2008

There's been a change to Wellington's starting 15 for Saturday afternoon's Shield defence against Tasman - the prop John Schwalger is out with a shoulder injury.

Tim Fairbrother will take his place at tight head, and Fairbrother says they need another good effort from the forwards if they're to continue their unbeaten run this season and hold the Shield.
