Trent Renata, Jacob Ellison, Romana Graham, Nick Crosswell, Jamieson Gibson-Park, Declan O'Donnell and Jackson Willison all move into the starting side for the game against an RFU Championship XV team.

Maori All Blacks: Jacob Ellison, Hika Elliot, Ben Afeaki, Jarrad Hoeata, Romana Graham, Nick Crosswell, Tanerau Latimer (c), Elliot Dixon, Jamieson Gibson-Park, Willie Ripia, Declan O'Donnell, Tim Bateman, Jackson Willison, Kurt Baker, Trent Renata.  Reserves: Quentin Macdonald, Bronson Murray, Ben May, Jason Eaton, Shane Christie, Frae Wilson, Charlie Ngatai, Andre Taylor.

The match kicks off at 1.05am Sunday (NZT) at Castle Park in Doncaster.
