Having come through Friday's final squad training session unscathed Mike Sherry will start for the hosts after initially being named on the bench when the team was announced at the official 12-noon deadline on Friday.

Once Sherry got through that session and showed no reaction it was decided he would start ahead of Damien Varley.

Replacements: 16 Damien Varley, 17 Wian du Preez, 18 John Ryan, 19 Billy Holland, 20 Paddy Butler, 21 Duncan Williams, 22 JJ Hanrahan, 23 Casey Laulala,
