Kia ora, good evening and welcome to Newshub's live coverage of the Highlanders v Hurricanes Super Rugby Pacific clash at Dunedin's Forsyth Barr Stadium.

For the last couple of weeks, the Hurricanes have been the only unbeaten team remaining in the competition and they will put that reputation on the line tonight against the southerners under the roof.

After resting many of their frontline players against Western Force last week, they bring 11 back into the starting XV, with only Jordie Barrett backing up in the backline, and prop Tyrel Lomax, lock Caleb Delany and captain Brad Shields retaining their place in the pack.

Lomax will bring up 100 Super Rugby appearances, spread over three teams - Melbourne Rebels, the Highlanders and the Hurricanes.

Fittingly, he faces one of those former teams tonight.

Join us at 7pm for kickoff.
