  • Big guns back for Canes in clash with Stormers

Ma'a Nonu will play his 150th Super Rugby match and coach Chris Boyd has bought back the big guns for Friday's clash against the Stormers at Westpac Stadium in Wellington of Friday evening.

Ben Franks returns to the front row and is the only change to the pack that started against the Rebels last week while Beauden Barrett, Julian Savea and Nehe Milner-Skudder all return to their respective spots in the backline.

All Blacks hooker Dane Coles was unavailable for selection because on an elbow injury.
