Chiefs duo return

AUCKLAND - Fullback Gareth Anscombe and New Zealand lock Brodie Retallick return from injury to be among six changes to reigning Super Rugby champions the Chiefs' starting 15 to face the Stormers in Hamilton tomorrow.

Anscombe, who replaces former All Black Mils Muliaina, will make his first Super Rugby appearance of the year, having had double shoulder surgery after the Chiefs won their second Super Rugby title last August.

Retallick has been cleared to play after head clash in the season-opening win over the Crusaders, with last weekend's bye giving him extra time for recovery.

In other changes, Jamie Mackintosh is back at loosehead prop, Liam Squire gets the No.8 jersey after impressing off the bench, James Lowe wins promotion at left wing and former Crusader Tom Marshall makes his Chiefs' debut at inside centre.

The match at Westpac Stadium night will be flanker Tanerau Latimer's 100th in Super Rugby and his 95th for the Chiefs.

The four-Test All Black made his debut in the competition with the Crusaders. Chiefs coach Dave Rennie says the Stormers again showed in their 14-13 defeat in Christchurch last Saturday they will be difficult to break down.

"Over the last couple of years, the Stormers have had the best defensive record in the competition and you saw why against the Crusaders," he said.
