Charlie Ngatai will captain a Chiefs team that includes four changes for the match against the Sharks in Durban on Saturday.
All Blacks Anton Lienert-Brown, Damian McKenzie and Brodie Retallick will all miss the match due to an All Blacks camp this weekend.
Fullback Scott Stevenson comes in for Lienert-Brown with Ngatai taking his place at 13. Sean Whanui rotates with Toni Pulu on the wing, with Marty McKenzie taking brother Damian’s place at flyhalf.
