The cavalry's arrived for the Highlanders as they prepare for their Super Rugby semi-final in Johannesburg.

Prop Siosiua Halanukonuka has been ruled out after tearing his calf, with Craig Millar arriving as cover.

Coach Jamie Joseph has also called in hooker Greg Pleasants-Tate, lock Joe Wheeler, flanker James Lentjes and backline utility Marty Banks.

Joseph said Halanukonuka's injury is a blow.

He said he'll miss the rest of the Super Rugby season at least, which is a shame.

Jamie Joseph said it's nice to have Marty Banks back after some niggly injuries have disrupted his season.
