Semifinal team confirmed

The Turbos have been forced into a reshuffled backline for their Mitre 10 Cup Championship semifinal against Bay of Plenty in Rotorua on Friday night.

A hamstring strain has left Ngani Laumape sidelined, while Rob Thompson is still battling concussion and Andre Taylor was also ruled out with injury.

That sees the combo of James Tofa and Josiah Maraku get a chance to take control of the midfield after impressing in the second half of last week's match.

The other change comes up front with Sione Asi getting the nod at tighthead prop.

On the bench, Stewart Cruden comes into the mix joining Hamish Northcott.
