Cape Town - Hurricanes hooker Dane Coles has recovered from a recent hamstring injury to lead out his side against the Brumbies in Canberra on Friday.

The 29-year-old All Black starts

the game in a strong looking starting XV that includes star half-backs TJ Perenara and Beauden Barrett.

Coles will line up alongside Reggie Goodes and Jeff Toomaga-Allen in the front-row, with Blade Thomson and Mark Abbott as the locks.

The back-row trio is equally as impressive as Brad Shields, Ardie Savea and Victor Vito pack down for last year's Super Rugby finalists.

With Ma'a Nonu and Conrad Smith now playing in France there is a new-look midfield pairing of Ngani Laumape and Vince Aso for the Hurricanes, while the back-three of Julian Savea, Cory Jane and Nehe Milner-Skudder will look to cause the Brumbies plenty of problems at GIO Stadium.

Team

Hurricanes: 15 Nehe Milner-Skudder, 14 Cory Jane, 13 Vince Aso, 12 Ngani Laumape, 11 Julian Savea, 10 Beauden Barrett, 9 TJ Perenara, 8 Victor Vito, 7 Ardie Savea, 6 Brad Shields, 5 Mark Abbott, 4 Blade Thomson, 3 Jeff Toomaga-Allen, 2 Dane Coles (c), 1 Reggie Goodes

Replacements:
16 Leni Apisai, 17 Chris Eves, 18 Loni Uhila, 19 Vaea Fifita, 20 Callum Gibbins, 21 Jamison Gibson-Park, 22 Otere Black, 23 Willis Halaholo
