The Hurricanes will welcome back their All Blacks star this Saturday night when they take on the Bulls at home in their Super Rugby quarter-final at Westpac Stadium in Wellington.
Beauden Barrett, Jordie Barrett and Ngani Laumape are expected to be back in the starting XV as they look to advance through to their fifth straight semi-final.
Assistant coach Jason Holland said they won't be making too many tactical changes following their 29-24 comeback win over the Blues last Friday.
"You don't want to try and come up with something really special in these games," said Holland.
"I think you want to tweak things, you know small tweaks probably just as good as something magic these days. And that is something that we will be concentrating on."
Highlanders prop Tyrel Lomax confirmed yesterday that he has signed a four year deal with the Wellington Super Rugby side which starts next season.
