    Brumbies change 1 for semi

    2015-06-25 09:22

    Canberra - Brumbies coach Stephen Larkham has named his side to take on the Hurricanes in their Super Rugby semi-final clash in Wellington on Saturday.

    There is only one change from the team that defeated the Stormers 39-19 in Cape Town last Saturday.

    With Henry Speight ruled out through suspension earlier this week, Larkham has named Lausii Taliauli to start on the wing.

    Taliauli is a former Australian Sevens player and appeared in the NRL’s National Youth Competition with the Gold Coast Titans.

    He debuted with the Brumbies this season, and has scored one Super Rugby try from six appearances.

    “Lausii is a good young player. With Henry ruled out we think he’s the right man for the job,” Larkham told the Brumbies’ official website.

    There are no other changes named from the side that ran in six tries against the Stormers.
