More information will be provided on Rutledge once a full medical assessment has been completed. Veteran's David Hall and Hale T-Pole return to the squad will help offset some of the experience lost through Rutledge's injury.
Junior Ngaluafe also has a shoulder injury which meant he was not considered for selection.
New to the squad are Craig Smith, Naulia (Tu) Dawai, Juan Koen, Gareth Williams-Spiers and Willis Halaholo while former Stag Bryan Milne returns to the fold after a very impressive 7's campaign with Southland earlier in the year backed up by good form in CUE TV Southland Wide Club Rugby.
