All Black winger to start at fullback

10:49 am on 5 April 2007

All Black winger Sitiveni Sivivatu will start at fullback when the Chiefs take on the Highlanders in their Super 14 clash in Queenstown on Saturday.

Chiefs coach Ian Foster says the move is a positional change for Sivivatu as he a class wing with two games under his belt and with Roy Kinikinilau and Lelia Masaga in the back three, it will increase their attacking options.

With second five Tasesa Lavea not available, Niva Ta'auso will partner Richard Kahui in the centres.

The Chiefs forward pack is unchanged from that which took on the Blues last weekend.
