The Bay of Plenty Volcanix has been named ahead of their match against Manawatu on Saturday 15 September at Central Trust Arena in Palmerston North.

Head coach Brendon Webby has made only one change to the forward pack from last weekend; prop Angel Mulu earns her first start of the season with Baye Jacob moving to the bench in her blazer game for the Volcanix. The remainder of the forward pack remains unchanged with Captain Christie Yule starting at six in her blazer game.

Rawinia Luka will be hoping to make her debut from the bench as the teams replacement prop.

In the backs, a new midfield combination of Tania Raharuhi and Hana Tapiata will combine at second five eight and centre respectively. Rotoiti’s Polly Playle will start on the left wing in jersey number 11 while Mystery McLean Kora moves to the bench alongside Renee Holmes.
