Jordie Barrett has come into the run‑on side.

The Hurricanes have made three changes to their starting 15 that will take on the Highlanders this evening.

Loose forward Callum Gibbins will be starting at openside in his first start of the season.

This means Ardie Savea will be moved to No.8 with Reed Prinsep moving to the reserves.

Loose head prop Chris Eves and fullback Jordie Barrett have come into the run‑on side.

The Hurricanes will play the Highlanders at 6.35 tonight while the Waratahs take on the Brumbies at 8.45.

Meanwhile, the Crusaders beat the Blues 33‑24 last night, the Chiefs beat the Rebels 27‑14 while the Bulls defeated the Sunwolves 34‑21 this morning.
