The Hurricanes' line-up for this weekend's Super Rugby clash against the table topping Chiefs sees the return of TJ Perenara and Cory Jane following injury.
Julian Savea will also be back on the wing after a week out due to illness.
Prop Reg Goodes could make his Hurricanes debut - he's been named in the number 17 jersey.
Goodes suffered a shoulder injury in the team's last pre-season match, making him unavailable until now.
Also on the bench, Jack Lam will return after two weeks out because of a concussion in the game against the Sharks South African franchise.
Kick off at Waikato Stadium this week is at 7.35pm on Saturday.
