Three changes to Hurricanes lineup

6:07 am on 27 June 2013

The Hurricanes have made three changes to their side for Friday night's Super Rugby clash with the Chiefs in Hamilton, with coach Mark Hammett starting all seven of his current All Blacks for the must-win match.

With Ardie Savea still away with the New Zealand under-20 side, Karl Lowe starts on the openside flank.

James Marshall replaces the injured Andre Taylor at fullback and Matt Proctor starts on the wing for Alapati Leiua, who has just returned from South Africa with the Samoan team.

The Hurricanes need to win their remaining three matches to have any chance of making the playoffs.
