    Dunedin - The Hurricanes will be without suspended lock James Broadhurst when they put their undefeated start to the Super Rugby season on the line in an all-New Zealand match against the Highlanders to open the sixth round Friday.

    Broadhurst, who has played 56 matches for the Wellington-based side, was suspended for hitting Blues flank Luke Braid in the face with his knee in the 61st minute last weekend.

    A judicial officer found that Broadhurst did not deliberately strike Braid, but that the lock made contact in a "careless" manner which caused concussion-like symptoms.

    The Highlanders host the Hurricanes at Dunedin.
