    The Hurricanes have made five changes to their starting side for Friday's Super Rugby derby against the Chiefs in Hamilton

    The Hurricanes have made five changes to their starting side for Friday's Super Rugby derby against the Chiefs in Hamilton


    Props Fraser Armstrong and Ben May, and hooker Dane Coles form a brand new front row, replacing Xavier Numia , Tyrel Lomax and Asafo Aumua

    James Blackwell will start at lock, while 20-year-old Devan Flanders gets the nod at blindside.

    Coles and halfback TJ Perenara will share the captains duties.



    Two down, and potentially a third... that's the worry surrounding Rowing New Zealand at the moment.

    The Coronavirus outbreak is disrupting the international season with the first two rowing World Cups in Italy cancelled - New Zealand were due to compete in the second.

    New Zealand's men's quad and eight face the "regatta of death" Olympic qualification event in Lucerne from May 17th to 19th, which could also be affected.



    The International Cricket Council is eager to see how New Zealand can build on what was a successful women's Twenty20 World Cup in Australia.

    ICC CEO Manu Sawhney says they want to continue the momentum and utilise kiwi's welcoming culture.
