In even better news two of the Hurricanes flankers in Ardie Savea and Jack Lam are expected to be fit for selection in a fortnight's time when the Hurricanes resume action, hosting the competition new boys in the Kings at Westpac Stadium.
Dane Coles and Motu Matu'u will be monitored throughout the week, with medical teams keeping close tabs on their ankle and shoulder injuries respectively.
Hawke's Bay's Ash Dixon and a remarkable moustache made a good debut against a tough Highlanders pack, but all of the Canes were now looking forward to a well earned break.
Captain Conrad Smith said he especially was looking forward to some time off, while Ben Franks, who scored an impressive try in the corner, said a full on first month with Kiwi derbies mean't that the bye had come at the perfect time.
