Fiji-born Chiefs and All Blacks winger Emoni Narawa has returned from injury and will be starting on the wing against the Reds in their Shop N Save Super Rugby Pacific quarter final clash tonight.

Narawa was rested last week due to a back injury but has forced his way back into the starting XV this week with the hope of making a difference following their loss to the Blues.

The 24-year-old will be joined by 3 other All Blacks teammates who will also be making their return in the likes of Shaun Stevenson, Anton Lienert-Brown and Tupou Vaa’i.

Narawa’s return sees him replacing Liam Coombes-Fabling, Stevenson’s inclusion will have Etene Nanai-Seturo shifting back to his usual spot on the left wing while the returns of Lienert-Brown and Vaa’i see Daniel Rona and Naitoa Ah Kuoi move to the bench.

The other change to last week’s starting side has another All Black back in, with hooker Samisoni Taukei’aho swapping roles with Bradley Slater.

On the bench, there are two new props, with Jared Proffit and Reuben O’Neill replacing Ollie Norris and Sione Ahio, while loose forward Kaylum Boshier and playmaker Josh Ioane also make way.

The Chiefs will take on the Reds at 7.05 tonight.

Meanwhile, the Swire Shipping Fijian Drua will take on the Blues at 7.05pm tomorrow at Eden Park.

In other quarter finals, the Hurricanes will host the Rebels at 4.35pm tomorrow and the Brumbies will play the Highlanders at 9.35pm tomorrow.
