There are two late changes to the Wales line-up for tonight's mid-week match against the Chiefs in Hamilton.

Captain Sam Warburton has been rushed into the starting line-up as a replacement for Ellis Jenkins, who has a tight thigh.

Taulupe Faletau has also been added to the bench, in place of Ross Moriarty.

Warburton and Faletau join a number of other players who are backing up just three days after the first test.

However, midweek captain Luke Charteris is unconcerned about fatigue, saying all the players in the squad knew what to expect ahead of the tour.

He said for those backing up it's tough, but opportunities like these don't come around often.

Kick off is at 6:35.
