Canterbury has recalled flanker Jordan Taufua back into its squad for the ITM Cup Premiership semi-final clash with Taranaki this weekend.
Taufua is a Canterbury contracted player, but is currently on loan to Tasman.
His loan agreement includes an injury call-back clause.
Canterbury head coach Tabai Matson says he has a number of injuries, particularly in the loose forwards, and so has made the call.
Taufua will miss Tasman's Championship semi-final against Otago on Friday.
