Hurricanes coach Chris Boyd has named his Super Rugby team to play the Highlanders on Friday with Cory Jane and Jeremy Thrush both in the starting line up.

Cory Jane replaces Matt Proctor on the right wing and Jeremy Thrush comes back into the starting line-up and will pair with Blade Thomson.

This weekend will be the first time in 2015 that Thrush has started at lock.

Ben May occupies a spot on the bench after returning from a leg injury, while Callum Gibbins also returns to the match day 23.
