Manawatu hooker Rob Foreman has been called up by Hurricanes coach Mark Hammett after Motu Matu'u joined Dane Coles on the sidelines.
Foreman has made 79 appearances for the Turbos, but has yet to play any Super Rugby.
"I'm excited. I've been playing ITM Cup for a few years now so it's a good chance to get up to the next level and see what it's like," he told Sportal.
This week the Hurricanes face the Bulls at Loftus Versfeld on Saturday, with Foreman expected to be on the bench as Ash Dixon gets a rare start.
