Hurricanes boss Chris Boyd has made two changes to his starting XV for Sunday's clash with the Reds in Brisbane.

Despite losing their first match of the season to the Waratahs last weekend, Boyd hasn't panicked and kept changes to a minimum.

A calf injury to Nehe Milner-Skudder means he makes way for James Marshall at full-back. The other change sees Matt Proctor coming in to the run-on side for Cory Jane on the right wing.

Injuries to Dane Coles (elbow), Blade Thomson (concussion) and Victor Vito (calf) mean they were not considered for selection.

Hurricanes' fly-half Beauden Barrett needs two points to move past David Holwell’s record of 676, to become the fanchise's all-time leading point-scorer.

Hurricanes: 15 James Marshall, 14 Matt Proctor, 13 Conrad Smith, 12 Ma’a Nonu, 11 Julian Savea, 10 Beauden Barrett, 9 TJ Perenara, 8 Brad Shields, 7 Ardie Savea, 6 Callum Gibbins, 5 James Broadhurst, 4 Jeremy Thrush, 3 Ben Franks, 2 Motu Matu’u, 1 Reggie Goodes.
Replacements: 16 Brayden Mitchell, 17 Jeffery Toomaga-Allen, 18 Chris Eves, 19. Mark Abbott, 20 Adam Hill, 21 Chris Smylie, 22 Rey Lee-Lo, 23 Cory Jane.
