Todd Blackadder has named his side to take on the Cheetahs this Saturday night.  It includes four changes to the starting line-up that beat the Lions last weekend.


In the forwards, hookers Codie Taylor and Ben Funnell will rotate so that Taylor starts at 2, and Matt Todd returns to the team to play at 7 this week.


In the back line, Israel Dagg returns from injury to take the fullback spot, while Kieron Fonotia moves onto the wing following Johnny McNicholl’s knee (posterior cruciate ligament) injury last week.


Kick-off on Saturday is 7:35pm at AMI Stadium (Addington).  Tickets are available through Ticket Direct – or phone 0800 224 224 – or at one of the ticketing outlets at Eastgate, The Palms, Champions of the World South City, or The Warehouse (Barrington, Hornby, Northwood, Riccarton, South City, Timaru, Rangiora and Greymouth branches only).
