The Hurricanes will trot out the same starting XV from last weekend's victory over the Reds for their Super Rugby showdown with the Waratahs in Sydney on Saturday night.

Mark Hammett's side have won four straight and are looking to solidify their position at the top of the New Zealand conference.

The only slight concern is a hamstring tweak for halfback Chris Smylie who will drop off the bench if he doesn't pass fit and would be replaced by Billy Guyton.

Hurricanes: Andre Taylor, Cory Jane, Conrad Smith (captain), Alapati Leiua, Julian Savea, Beauden Barrett, TJ Perenara, Victor Vito, Jack Lam, Faifili Levave, James Broadhurst, Jeremy Thrush, Jeffery Toomaga-Allen, Dane Coles, Ben Franks. Reserves: Motu Matu'u, Chris Eves, Reggie Goodes, Blade Thomson, Ardie Savea, Chris Smylie/Billy Guyton, Tim Bateman, Matt Proctor
