Cooper responded to the 37-13 loss to the Stormers by dropping prop Jacob Ellison, lock Bryn Evans, All Blacks scrumhalf Piri Weepu and winger David Smith to the bench for Friday's daunting task.
Flanker Scott Waldrom was left out of the 22-man squad completely and fullback Corey Jane has returned to New Zealand after being concussed.
John Schwalger, Jeremy Thrush and Karl Lowe were brought into the forwards. Tyson Keats has replaced Weepu. Alapati Leiua was named on the left wing in place of Smith, who is the joint leader in the competition with five tries.
Andre Taylor has replaced Jane. The All Blacks back was stretchered off the field after receiving a blow to the head against the Stormers.
The Hurricanes have lost both their games in South Africa following an unbeaten start to the season. The Bulls match is their last of their South Africa leg.
