Hurricanes Under-20 squad named for Chiefs

Thu 28th Feb

The Hurricanes Under-20 side will look to maintain their winning record for 2019 season when they meet the Chiefs at Gallagher Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

A number of players have been in great form for the Hurricanes Hunters in recent weeks, including midfielder Danny Toala who scored a hat-trick of tries in their win over Blues A.

Devan Flanders also returns from the Hunters squad to captain the side which also defeated the Blues Under-20 team earlier this season.

The Hurricanes side will have two wild card players involved in the fixture with Investec Super Rugby squad members Fraser Armstrong and Asafo Aumua starting in the front row. The Chiefs Under-20 side have been granted three wild card places for the fixture.

Two of the Hurricanes Heartland Under-20 players - Jordan Tupai-Ui (Horowhenua-Kapiti) and Isaac Bracewell (Wairarapa Bush) - have been included in the reserves.

Saturday's match is the last opportunity for prospective New Zealand Under-20 players to impress before they go into the national camp.

Kick-off at Gallagher Stadium in Hamilton is 5.05pm.
