Kia ora, good evening and welcome to Newshub's coverage of the Super Rugby match from Westpac Stadium. 

Jordie Barrett has earned another start at fullback for the Hurricanes clash with the Rebels in Wellington on Saturday.

The All Blacks utility impressed in the win against the Chiefs last weekend, crossing for two tries to further bolster the opinion that it's his most effective position.

The 22-year-old has played at second-five, centre and wing throughout the campaign, but will play his second straight game at the back.

Halfback TJ Perenara makes way for Richard Judd to start at number nine, taking one of his allotted All Blacks-allocated rest weeks.

Asafo Aumua will make another start at hooker, while Ricky Riccitelli remains on the bench.

Lock James Blackwell is part of the run-on side for the first time this year, partnering Isaia Walker-Leawere.

Coach John Plumtree's stocks at tighthead prop have also been tested with the loss of Ben May to injury. He'll undergo an MRI to determine the extent of the problem, while Jeffrey Toomaga-Allen slots in to start.
