Waikato look to Donald and Muliaina for inspiration
Tuesday, October 12, 2010 NZPA
Waikato are currently third in the standings with 36 points and with just eight points separating the top seven teams, need a bonus point win to keep in the race for a semifinal spot.
Changes to Waikato's tight forwards include Ben May moving into the loosehead prop position and Vern Kamo staying at hooker with Aled de Malmanche's groin injury.
Kent Fife comes into the team to cover the reserve lock position and in the loose forwards, Matt Vant Leven comes off the bench for the blindside flanker's role.
Malcolm Barnes starts at halfback because of injury to regular Tawera Kerr-Barlow and David Bason will stand ready from the bench.
Second five Jackson Willison returns to the starting lineup after sustaining a head injury against Northland two weeks ago.
