The Pulse Energy Highlanders will take on the Crusaders in the purpose built and unique setting of Fred Booth Park in Waimumu. The game will be played as part of the Southern Field Days taking place in Waimumu.
The Highlanders will field an almost completely different starting XV to the one that narrowly lost to Racing 92 in Hong Kong last weekend. Josh Renton, Patrick Osborne and Matt Faddes are the only three that started that game that are included as starters for this fixture. Head Coach Jamie Joseph said “obviously we wanted to give our entire squad some game time over the first two games. They have all been training well and deserve a chance to put their best foot forward for selection when the competition starts in a few weeks".
