In the forwards, Jono Owen will make his run-on debut at tighthead prop, with Rodney Blake coming off the bench. Luke Jones is back at blindside flanker following his two-match suspension, with Tim Davidson at openside, replacing Michael Lipman who will be rested for the match.
The Rebels backline remains unchanged.
Tom Chamberlain will start off the bench, having overcome concussion issues, while Richard Kingi also finds himself on the wood after recovering from a minor hamstring strain.
Nic Henderson will celebrate his hundredth Super Rugby cap against the Hurricanes.
