Super Rugby Pacific round 14 wraps up with another trans Tasman clash as the Highlanders take on the NSW Waratahs at Forsyth Barr Stadium, Dunedin . Join The Roar for live scores from 1:35pm AEST.

As we reach the final fame of the penultimate round of the regular season we get to see two sides who have locked in finals rugby and who will be viewing these last two rounds as opportunities to gain momentum before the knock out phase.

The Tahs have made five changes to their starting line up with Te Tera Faulkner teaming up with Dave Porecki and Archer Holz in the front row, and Geoff Cridge joining Hugh Sinclair in the second row.

Jed Holloway and Charlie Gamble are rested but Michael Hooper is back which will bring some more confidence to the NSW side. In the backs, Izaia Perese is still out through injury and Alex Newsome will play in the outside centre spot. Ben Donaldson – who usually plays at number 10 for the Tahs has been moved back to full back.

Highlanders coach Tony Brown has made a handful of changes with three new faces in the forwards for this week’s clash. Daniel Lienart-Brown is in for Ethan de Groot while Sam Caird – who was a Tah himself last season – is brought into the second row. Liam Coltman is in at hooker with Andrew Makalio moving to the bench.

In the backs, former England winger  Denny Solomona is back from injury and into the starting line up.

It’s been another tough week for the Ausrtalian sides with only the Reds able to pick up a victory over Moana Pasifika. A win for the Tahs today not only helps their positioning for the finals but helps redress the trans Tasman balance a bit for this round.
