    Marty Banks will steer the Highlanders from first five in what could be a must-win final round Super Rugby Pacific match against the Rebels in Melbourne on Sunday

    Marty Banks will steer the Highlanders from first five in what could be a must-win final round Super Rugby Pacific match against the Rebels in Melbourne on Sunday


    With Sam Gilbert suspended and Mitch Hunt still injured, Banks has been entrusted to start at 10.

    Thomas Umaga-Jensen returns from a back complaint to start at second five in the other major change.

    The Highlanders may need to pick up a victory on Sunday, if the Force leapfrog them into eighth with a win over the Hurricanes late on Saturday night.
