    Wholesale changes for the Highlanders as they look to end a four game losing slide in Super Rugby

    Wholesale changes for the Highlanders as they look to end a four game losing slide in Super Rugby


    Folau Fakatava and Jacob Ratumaitavuki-Kneepkens are the big name casualties - relegated to the bench for Friday's clash against the Reds in Brisbane.

    James Arscott and Connor Garden-Bachop take their places at halfback and fullback respectively.

    Coach Clark Dermody says the change at 15 is two-fold.



    Joe Moody, Owen Franks and Christian Lio-Willie will make their first starts of the season for the Crusaders in their clash with the Force.

    Tyrel Lomax and Brett Cameron have been given a breather ahead of the Hurricanes visit to Suva to take on the Drua.
