Banks boost for Landers

Playmaker Marty Banks has made a timely return from injury to boost the Highlanders ahead of their semi-final against the Lions at Ellis Park on Saturday.

Banks has overcome a hamstring strain and is set to replace Otago pivot Fletcher Smith in the match 23.

However, the Landers have been dealt an injury blow up front, with Tongan prop Siosuia Halanukonuka ruled out with an ankle injury.
