Ben Botica is back in the No 10 jersey, with Willie Walker named at fullback, while 18-year-old Tongan under-20s rep Pita Ahki keeps his place as the midfield reserve after an impressive debut against Manawatu.
Alex Woonton, who played a key role in North Shore’s win in the club final last weekend, has been drafted in as reserve prop due to the foot injury sustained by Michael Reid.
