The Hurricanes will bring their stars to Hamilton as they look to secure a home quarter-final.

Coach Chris Boyd has made just three changes to his run-on squad. Ben Lam returns to the starting side on the wing, with Julian Savea heading to the bench, while prop Jeff Toomaga-Allen and lock Michael Fatialofa also return. Chris Eves, Reed Prinsep and Finlay Christie all return after a week away.

To secure a home quarter-final, the Hurricanes only need to secure a bonus point, or avoid losing by 23 points or more.

Hurricanes: Jordie Barrett, Nehe Milner-Skudder, Wes Goosen, Ngani Laumape, Ben Lam, Beauden Barrett, TJ Perenara, Blade Thomson, Sam Henwood, Brad Shields, Sam Lousi, Michael Fatialofa, Jeff Toomaga-Allen, Ricky Riccitelli, Toby Smith.

Reserves: James O'Reilly, Chris Eves, Ben May, Gareth Evans, Reed Prinsep, Finlay Christie, Ihaia West, Julian Savea.
