Gregory back for Highlanders as injuries force changes

The Highlanders have made some injury enforced changes and again shuffled their front row for their match against the Hurricanes on Sunday.

Scott Gregory comes in on the wing for a concussed Ngane Punivai while Jack Whetton is the replacement for Josh Dickson who broke his leg in the game against the Crusaders last week.
