One change for Taranaki clash

The Turbos made just one change for their final home match of the season against Taranaki in Manfeild on Sunday.

Hooker Sam Stewart is out injured and has been replaced by Siua Maile, who missed last week through injury.

Teofilo Paulo retains his spot at lock having been a late change last week with Tom Hughes ruled out.

The only other change to the matchday 23 is the return from injury of first five-eighth Stewart Cruden.

The Turbos will be looking to continue their form after picking up their first win of the season last week against Southland.

James Tofa was particularly dangerous in the midfield, as was winger Te Rangatira Waitokia.

Up front, Kirk Tufuga, TK Howden and Liam Mitchell were others to impress last week.

A win on Sunday will continue to keep the Turbos’ playoff hopes open in 2020 with one round remaining.
