Three past or present All Blacks have been stood down from the Hurricanes side to play the Reds on Saturday night.

Julian Savea, Cory Jane and Victor Vito are missing from the team after breaching the team's self-imposed curfew.

Ardie Savea and reserve prop Chris Eves have also been stood down.

Wellington wing Wes Goosen replaces Julian Savea on the left wing, while Jason Woodward comes onto the right with Matt Proctor at centre, while Blade Thomson starts at number eight for Vito.

Callum Gibbons has been given the nod at openside for Ardie Savea.

Coach Chris Boyd says the players made a poor decision and the matter's been dealt with internally.
