Highlanders’ Head Coach, Jamie Joseph, has named his team to play the Stormers in Dunedin
tomorrow night.  He has made only one change to the run-on team that played the Rebels in
Invercargill last Friday night; Andrew Hore returns to the starting pack and Jason Rutledge
moves to the reserves. 

Jimmy Cowan will make his 100th appearance for the franchise if he takes the field, only the second
player to reach this momentous achievement,  following former Highlanders’ Captain Anton Oliver
who played 127 games for the franchise.  

Hooker Jason Rutledge will also reach the milestone of 50 games if he takes the field tomorrow night.

Mike Delany has joined the Highlanders this week and is not ready to play. It is hoped that he will be fit to play
against the Blues following the Highlanders bye week.

Highlanders v Stormers, Forsyth Barr Stadium, Dunedin, Saturday 7 April, 7.35pm (NZT).
