Hurricanes name team for match against Blues

1:28 pm on 21 March 2012

The Hurricanes have named a near-unchanged line-up to face the Blues in Friday's Super Rugby match at Eden Park.

The only change is in the front-row with prop Ben May bracketed to start with Michael Bent, with rookie Jeff Toomaga-Allen given the nod at tighthead after impressing in his first few games.

A decision on who will start at loosehead prop will be made later in the week.

Centre Conrad Smith will again captain the side.
