    Hurricanes change two for Reds

    2015-04-23 12:18

    Wellington - Hurricanes coach Chris Boyd has made two changes to his starting XV for Sunday's Super Rugby clash with the Reds in Brisbane.

    Despite losing their first match of the season to the Waratahs last weekend, Boyd hasn't panicked and kept changes to a minimum.

    A calf injury to Nehe Milner-Skudder means he makes way for James Marshall at fullback. The other change sees Matt Proctor coming in to the run-on side for Cory Jane on the right wing.

    Injuries to Dane Coles (elbow), Blade Thomson (concussion) and Victor Vito (calf) mean they were not considered for selection.

    Hurricanes flyhalf Beauden Barrett needs two points to move past David Holwell’s record of 676, to become the franchise's all-time leading point-scorer.

    Sunday’s clash in Brisbane kicks off at 08:05 (SA time).
