    Smith cleared for Hurricanes

    2013-02-27 10:08
    Cape Town - Conrad Smith has recovered from injury in time for the Hurricanes' Super Rugby clash against the Reds at Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane on Friday.

    Kick-off is at 12:20 SA time.

    The veteran centre was believed to be concussed during the clash against the Blues last weekend, but tests revealed that the injury wasn't serious. This means he retains his midfield spot alongside Tim Bateman.

    The only change to the starting XV sees Jeffrey Toomaga-Allen slot in at tighthead ahead of Ben May.

    On the bench, Motu Matu’u will make his first appearance for the Hurricanes in 2013 after suffering a pectoral injury during pre-season training. James Broadhurst will pull on the No 18 jersey as he comes in to replace the injured Mark Reddish.

    The Hurricanes will be looking to bounce back after a disappointing defeat at home against the Blues in their opening match, while the Reds have had a mixed bag of results to date, going down to the Brumbies in Round 1, before rebounding to beat the Waratahs last weekend.
