Danny Cipriani returns to the side at fly-half after being suspended since April for breaking club rules. Julian Huxley has moved to outside centre, Richard Kingi will start on the wing and Mark Gerrard has been named at fullback.

This week, Rodney Blake returns to the side at loose-head prop and Greg Somerville comes in at tight-head, Laurie Weeks will start on the bench.

Hugh Pyle misses this week with a hamstring injury, Kevin O’Neill has been named in the second row.

Both Adam Byrnes and Lachlan Mitchell will start on the bench.
