Two changes to Hurricanes

1:39 pm on 31 March 2011

The Hurricanes coach Mark Hammett has kept faith in his top side for Saturday night's Super Rugby clash with the Bulls in Napier despite expressing his dissatisfaction with their recent performances.

The Hurricanes have won just one match so far this season and Hammett questioned the commitment of some of his players after they capitulated to the Melbourne Rebels 42-25 in the last round, having established a 17-nil lead early on.

The fit again Hosea Gear and Serge Lilo both start this weekend, meaning Hammett is pretty much giving the same side another chance..

He says the coaches had really hard look at the rest of the squad before deciding to give another chance to the bulk of the players used in Melbourne.
