Head Coach Brendon Webby has named a strong starting 15 for the Volcanix following the success of last weekend’s historic draw against Auckland.
The front row remains unchanged, however due to the injury (broken eye socket) of Kate Henwood, Julia Buescher will combine with Co-captain Kaci James in her twentieth game to complete the locking duo. Co-captain Christine Yule will start alongside Lily Florence in their respective number six and seven jerseys with Sequoia Te Aonui completing the forward pack at number eight.
Jade Tuilaepa will debut at first five eight combining with Ora Williams at halfback in the only changes to the backline.
From the bench, prop Christine Corbett, lock Amanda Aldridge and first five eight Sarah Kay will be hoping to make their debut.
