AUCKLAND - Loose forwards Victor Vito and Brad Shields will make their first appearances of the Super Rugby season when the Hurricanes face the Bulls in Napier.

Vito will be at No.8 for Blade Thomson while Shields will be in the reserves, with both having recovered from knee injuries.

Shields' return and Thomson's inclusion on the bench means Ardie Savea drops out of the match-day squad.

The starting XV for the clash at McLean Park tomorrow night also features the return of All Blacks winger Cory Jane.

Alapati Leiua, who scored a brilliant solo try on the wing in the 29-26 win over the Crusaders last Friday, moves to second five-eighth.

Leiua replaces Tim Bateman who injured a shoulder against the Crusaders.

In the front row, prop Jeff Toomaga-Allen, who suffered a head knock in the same match, is bracketed with John Schwalger.

Hurricanes: Andre Taylor, Cory Jane, Conrad Smith (capt), Alapati Leiua, Julian Savea, Beauden Barrett, TJ Perenara, Victor Vito, Jack Lam, Faifili Levave, James Broadhurst, Jeremy Thrush, Jeff Toomaga-Allen/John Schwalger, Dane Coles, Ben Franks. Reserves: Ash Dixon, Chris Eves, Schwalger/Reggie Goodes, Blade Thomson, Brad Shields, Billy Guyton, Hadleigh Parkes, Marty Banks.
