Weepu is now fit and prefers to play halfback but Mathewson's form has also been good.
After last week's 56-7 thrashing of the Brumbies, Cooper may be loathe to break up a combination that has guided his side to the top of the table with three straight wins.
Cooper has been forced to make changes to his backline with fullback Cory Jane unavailable because of a calf problem.
Tamati Ellison drops back to No 15 from the wing where he scored a try last week, with Zac Guildford coming on as right wing.
In the locks, Jason Eaton replaces Bryn Evans who was impressive against the Brumbies.
