Peter Umaga-Jensen starts for the Hurricanes

A handful of tweaks have been made to the Hurricanes starting line-up ahead of Sunday’s clash with the Crusaders in Christchurch.



The Hurricanes are the only side that managed to hand the Crusaders a loss in 2020, breaking their four-year winning streak at home.




New All Black Peter Umaga-Jensen, who came off the bench in round one has been handed the number 13 jersey this week and is the only change head coach, Jason Holland, has made to the backs.



Up front is where rejigs have happened, with Isaia Walker-Leawere, Reed Prinsep and Du’Plessis Kirifi all given a start.



Holland has plenty of firepower up his sleeve, with the likes of Ricky Riccitelli, Billy Proctor, and Salesi Rayasi on the bench.
