See the announcement here: Consistency Of Selection In Hurricanes Squad.
The 2005 Hurricanes squad announced today contains only four changes to the 2004 squad. With the bulk of the 2004 squad performing well for the Vodafone Wellington Lions and Genesis Taranaki in the recent Air New Zealand NPC, coaches Colin Cooper and Murray Roulston have been able to select a settled squad.
Still looks a little short on a No. 10 – not convinced by Riki Flutey yet and Jimmy Gopperth is an unknown. I know Dan Carter and Andrew Mehrten’s were encouraged to move somewhere else – I wish one of them had come to Wellington.
Still looks like a balanced squad and its good to see Lome Fa’atau, Brent Ward and Scott Waldrom back.
Roll on 26 February.
