New Zealand Heartland XV Coach, Barry Matthews, has announced nine changes to the starting fifteen that beat New Zealand Marist on the weekend.

“We knew we had depth throughout the park when we selected the squad. We want to give as many players as possible a run and 24 of the 26 squad members will have had a start after this game.

“We don’t know a lot about Nadi, but knowing Fijian rugby we are expecting it to be a very physical and fast game.

“We’re looking forward to the encounter and are hoping to go two from two wins tomorrow night.”
