Piutau was absent from last weekend’s loss against Samoa, with Elvis Taione given the captain’s armband in his absence.
Former Highlander and current Benetton representative Nasi Manu was originally named to captain last week’s side, but was changed late in the week.
Taione will be given a rest this weekend. Instead, Sosefo Sakalia will pack down at hooker with Ma’afu Fia taking Ben Tameifuna’s spot on the tighthead.
The Toutai Kefu coached side will feature most of its experience players such as Cooper Vuna, Steve Mafi, Siale Piutau to name a few.
