Waikato have named the same lineup that beat Auckland in their semi-final for Friday night's provincial rugby final against Canterbury in Christchurch.
Halfback Brendon Leonard returns to the bench after missing the Auckland match with a head injury.
Coach Chris Gibbes says it was a tough selection at No.9 as Malcolm Barnes has come in and played well in Leonard's absence but they believe this is the right combination to take on Canterbury.
Gibbes says Canterbury is a formidable opponent at home with threats right throughout their squad.
He says their main focus is doing the basics well.
