Stormers Super Rugby head coach Robbie Fleck has named a team with three changes for Saturday’s match against the Brumbies.

There are three changes and a positional switch in the Stormers starting line-up for the match at Newlands.

There are two changes to the backline and one in the forward pack.

Joshua Stander will be at flyhalf with Dan Kriel at inside centre in place of Jean-Luc du Plessis and Damian de Allende who are both being rested for this match.

Pieter-Steph du Toit returns to take his place at blindside flank, with Kobus van Dyk moving to No.8 in place of the injured Jaco Coetzee.

Tighthead prop Neethling Fouche, loose forward Siya Kolisi and utility back JJ Engelbrecht will be among the replacements in the only other changes to the match-day 23 that featured in the win against the Rebels in Melbourne last week.

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

“It is great for us to be in front of our supporters at Newlands again, which is something we want to make the most of.

“It will be crucial for us to build some momentum in the second half of the season and that starts on Saturday against the Brumbies,” he said.
