Fiji-born Queensland Reds flanker Seru Uru moves to Number 8 for their Round 13 Super Rugby Pacific clash against the Blues on Saturday.
Uru has been an excellent performer for the Reds and his position change comes as Harry Wilson continues to recover from a concussion he sustained last week.
Meanwhile, Suliasi Vunivalu has retained his spot and will be a big boost in the back three with Jordan Petaia and Jock Campbell.
Playmaker James O'Connor will make his return from injury and is one of six changes to the starting XV, with fellow Wallaby Hunter Paisami, Angus Scott-Young, Connor Vest, Angus Blyth, Albert Anae.
The Reds vs Blues match will kick off at 5:05pm at Eden Park.
Reds: Dane Zander, Albert Anae, Feao Fotuaika, Ryan Smith, Angus Blyth, Connor Vest, Angus Scott-Young, Seru Uru, Tate McDermott (C), James O'Connor, Jordan Petaia, Hunter Paisami, Josh Flook, Suliasi Vunivalu, Jock Campbell.
Reserves: Matt Faessler, Harry Hoopert, Sef Fa'agase, Lukhan Salakaia-Loto, Tuaina Tualima, Kalani Thomas, Hamish Stewart, Lawson Creighton.
