Hurricanes coach Chris Boyd has elected to rest All Blacks Julian Savea and TJ Perenara for this Saturday's match against the Sharks.
Boyd has made 10 changes to the side that beat the Crusaders last weekend with six of those changes to the starting line up.
Matt Proctor slots onto the wing for Savea while Chris Smylie will start in place of Perenara.
James Marshall will run at number 10 with the knee injury to Beauden Barrett.
Chris Eves, Victor Vito and Blade Thomson move into the pack at the expense of Reggie Goodes, Brad Shields and Callum Gibbins who have all had large workloads so far this season.
Hurricanes: Nehe Milner-Skudder, Cory Jane, Conrad Smith (c), Ma'a Nonu, Matt Proctor, James Marshall, Chris Smylie, Victor Vito, Ardie Savea, Blade Thomson, James Broadhurst, Jeremy Thrush, Ben Franks, Motu Matu'u, Chris Eves. Reserves: Brayden Mitchell, Jeffery Toomaga-Allen, Reggie Goodes, Callum Gibbins, Brad Shields, Frae Wilson, Otere Black, Rey Lee-Lo.
