Karl Lowe back for the Hurricanes

8:35 am on 29 March 2012

Flanker Karl Lowe will play his first match for the Hurricanes in almost 2 years after being named to start against the South African side the Cheetahs in their Super Rugby clash in Wellington on Saturday.

Lowe has been plagued by injury with his last match in the final round of the 2010 season.

He played for the Hurricanes Development side last weekend.

Lock James Broadhurst and second five Charlie Ngatai will make their first starts of the season, replacing Jeremy Thrush and Tim Bateman respectively.
