Tuivasa-Sheck, 25, missed last week's win with an ankle injury, however has been passed fit to take part in tonight's clash at 1300SMILES Stadium.

Fusitu'a meanwhile, has been withdrawn from the side with an undisclosed injury, meaning a reshuffle in the backline.

Gerard Beale moves from the centre to the wing to replace Fusitu'a, with Peta Hiku moving from fullback into the centres to accomodate the return of Tuivasa-Sheck.
