WELLINGTON - Eight changes have been made to the Chiefs starting line-up for their Super Rugby match against the Melbourne Rebels in Hamilton tonight.

Prop Jamie Mackintosh, lock Michael Fitzgerald and flanker Tanerau Latimer return to the forwards, while Kane Thompson will start at No.8 and Liam Messam moves to the bench.

Brodie Retallick takes over the captaincy for the match.
