    Sunwolves ring changes for Brumbies

    2018-06-01 10:22

    Canberra - Sunwolves head coach Jamie Joseph has rung the changes to his starting line-up for their Super Rugby clash with the Brumbies in Canberra on Sunday. 

    There are 10 alterations in all - including two positional switches - from the run-on side which suffered a 40-13 defeat to the Rebels in their Round 15 encounter in Melbourne last weekend. 

    Three of those changes were enforced with Grant Hattingh (concussion), Michael Little (knee) and Hosea Samaki (knee) all sidelined through injury. 

    In the back-line, Robbie Robertson comes in at full-back in place of Jason Emery, who slots in at outside centre where he takes over from Little while Sione Teaupa comes in for Saumaki on the left wing. 

    The other changes in the backs sees Semisi Masirewa and Harumichi Tatekawa replacing Lomano Lemeki and Ryoto Nakamura on the right wing and at inside centre respectively. 

    In the forwards, Willie Britz comes in as Hattingh's replacement on the blindside flank while Ed Quirk moves from number eight to the openside flank with Rahboni Warren Vosayako taking Quirk's spot at the back of the scrum. 

    In the second-row, Sam Wykes replaces Shinya Makabe while up front, Hencus van Wyk and Atsushi Sakate are preferred to Jiwon Koo and Jaba Bregvadze as the starting tighthead prop and hooker respectively. 

    Amongst the substitutes, Alex Woonton, Fetuani Lautaimi, Gerhard van den Heever and Kai Ishii are all set to make their Sunwolves debuts if they see action.
