Canterbury Head Coach Joe Maddock has made minimal changes to his side for their final Mitre 10 Cup regular season match against North Harbour on Sunday.

The starting forward pack is unchanged from last weekend's successful Ranfurly Shield challenge against Otago, while the only change in the backline sees Braydon Ennor return from a knee injury to line up in the midfield. Ennor's return means Ngane Punivai moves back out to the left wing, in place of Sam Gilbert. On the bench, Inga Finau will wear the number 23 jersey this week, having recovered from the concussion he sustained against Counties Manukau in week eight.

Sunday's match at home follows the Canterbury Women's Farah Palmer Cup clash against Bay of Plenty, and will be the last Ranfurly Shield challenge of 2019. Canterbury and North Harbour currently sit third and fourth on the Premiership table with this being the final round before the Semi Finals next week.

Kick off in the match is 4.35pm, Sunday 13 October, at Orangetheory Stadium in Christchurch.
