Highlanders change one for Stormers

The Highlanders have made one change for the Stormers to the starting line-up
that took the field against the Bulls last week in Pretoria.

James Paterson regains his position on the right wing, replacing Siale Piutau,
who moves to the left wing.

Piutau will start the match in place of Kade Poki who started against the Bulls
last week.

Kade Poki has been replaced as he has a knee strain and is expected to be
out for 1-2 weeks.

Mo Schwalger comes into the 22 replacing Brayden Mitchell.

Meanwhile, midfielder, Matt Saunders, is returning home from South Africa following
the sudden death of his father on

“At this sad time our thoughts are with Matt and the Saunders family” said
Roger Clark Highlanders General Manager.

As a mark of respect the team will wear black armbands during the game. Saunders
is expected back in NZ on Friday.
