Canes chase second win

WELLINGTON - The Hurricanes hope another stable selection will keep them on a Super Rugby winning streak when they face the Waratahs in Sydney.

Coach Mark Hammett has barely touched his fourth-placed team for the pivotal showdown with the sixth-placed Waratahs tomorrow.

The only tweak comes on the reserves bench, where halfback Chris Smylie is ruled out with a hamstring strain and replaced by Billy Guyton.

Hammett made just one change to his starting team in his two previous team announcements, both at prop.

The stability has reaped results, with the Hurricanes the form team of the competition on a four-game winning streak which has propelled them to the top of the New Zealand conference.

Last week they scored five tries in beating the Queensland Reds 35-21, pushing them further clear as the competition's top tryscorers (31) and pointscorers (267).

They have scored four tries in lodging comprehensive wins over the Waratahs in the teams' last two meetings, including a 33-12 triumph in Sydney two years ago.

Two players will play their 50th game — All Blacks wing Julian Savea and lock James Broadhurst.

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, Billy Guyton, Tim Bateman, Matt Proctor.
