Keen to give everyone a chance to stretch their legs, Hilton-Jones has named a vastly different side to the one that opened their three-match 2013 programme against Fiji.
"Fiji was a very physical and close encounter. The Fijian community came out in force to cheer on their schools team.
"We made things difficult for ourselves by not executing at key times during the game and Fiji were quick to capitalise on our errors.
"Having said that we learned some valuable lessons and the boys are fired up and have done a good job to shift focus to the next match."
Kick off for today's match at Knox Grammar School is 3:30pm NZT.
