Jane relegated as Hurricanes named to play Reds

  • Jane relegated as Hurricanes named to play Reds

Coach Chris Boyd has made two changes to the side that lost to the Waratahs last weekend with Cory Jane dropping back to the bench in favour of Matt Proctor on the right wing.

Jane, a veteran of 53 tests for the All Blacks, has started every match this year when he has been available so the demotion comes as a surprise.

Matt Proctor has been impressive in the limited game time he has had.
