Umaga returns for Hurricanes

The Hurricanes have announced their team to face the Highlanders. Tana Umaga makes his long awaited comeback.


The only change to the team that lost to the Crusaders is the Umaga change who comes in for Tane Tu’ipulotu.


The Hurricanes had the BYE last week and will probably start a little slow but once they get going their backs will be too pacey for the Highlanders backline.
