Stormers Super rugby head coach Robbie Fleck has named wing JJ Engelbrecht and flank Kobus van Dyk in his starting team to play the Rebels at Newlands on Friday.

The Stormers are back home at Newlands following three away games and will face the Melbourne side in a match that kicks off at 15h05 on Freedom Day.

Engelbrecht’s inclusion on the left wing is the only change to the backline, while in the forward pack Van Dyk is at blindside flank, with Pieter-Steph du Toit shifting to lock where he will partner Chris van Zyl.

Cobus Wiese and Seabelo Senatla both make their return from injury on the replacements bench.

Stormers Head Coach Robbie Fleck said that his team is looking forward to playing at Newlands once again.

“It is always good to be back at Newlands and playing in front of our faithful supporters who have played a big role in our three wins at home this season,” he said.
