The Tongan torpedo returns
Chiefs coach Dave Rennie has made a number of changes to the pack for Friday's all-New Zealand Super Rugby semifinal.
He brought back his Tongan torpedo, Sona Taumalolo, at prop for the encounter with the Crusaders in Hamilton.
Samoan captain Mahonri Schwalger also returns to the front row, while Ben Afeaki comes back on the bench after an absence of six weeks.
Tanerau Latimer gets the start at openside, meaning a bench spot for All Black Sam Cane.
The backline is the same one that faced the Crusaders in Round 17, with Andrew Horrell starting at centre outside Sonny Bill Williams, Asaeli Tikoirotuma on the wing with Robbie Robinson reverting to fullback.
