WELLINGTON - Hurricanes coach Mark Hammett has named an almost identical team to that which beat the Blues 39-20 last week for tonight's Super Rugby home match against the Queensland Reds.

Prop Ben Franks returns after missing the Blues match with a groin injury in the only change to Hammett's starting 15.

Fullback Andre Taylor will bring up 50 matches for the Hurricanes, and says it's an achievement he can't wait to celebrate.

"This is a special milestone for me, and it's actually one I never thought I'd reach," he said.

The Hurricanes have finally found form, winning their last three games.

Hurricanes: Andre Taylor, Cory Jane, Conrad Smith (captain), Alapati Leiua, Julian Savea, Beauden Barrett, TJ Perenara, Victor Vito, Jack Lam, Faifili Levave, James Broadhurst, Jeremy Thrush, Jeffery Toomaga-Allen, Dane Coles, Ben Franks. Reserves: Motu Matu'u, Chris Eves, Reggie Goodes, Blade Thomson, Ardie Savea, Chris Smylie, Tim Bateman, Matt Proctor.
