John Leslie and Chris Hyndman will return to the starting XV on Saturday after dropping out just before last week's match with 'flu. Hyndman comes in at outside centre, a spot filled by Bruce Reihana last week, while Leslie is at inside centre. Mark Tucker, who played at 12 against Gloucester does not make the bench thanks to a broken jaw, although he played on with the injury last weekend.
Shane Drahm drops to the bench after picking up a badly bruised thigh in the Gloucester game, James Brooks starting in his place, while the pack remains unchanged.
