Stormers captain Jean de Villiers who was stretchered off the field against the Sharks last Saturday, has been named in the side to play the Reds in Friday’s Super 14 clash at Newlands on Friday.


Stormers coach Rassie Erasmus said at Tuesday’s team announcement that De Villiers will decide later this week if he will take up his place in Friday’s game.

 

In the event of De Villiers pulling out he will be replaced by Dylan des Fountain.

Fijian-born Sireli Naqelevuki has also been named in the run-on XV.


He returns from injury after a two-week lay-off but the Stormers will make a final call on him later this week and have bracketed him with Nick Koster on the wing.


Erasmus said last week that the loose trio combination would be rotated this week, but he named an unchanged backrow.


AJ Venter together with Luke Watson will again provide in that department. Joe Pietersen who replaced De Villiers in the match against the Sharks is unfortunate to dropped from the matchday 22 all together.

 

The Stormers team is as follows:


15. Conrad Jantjes ,14. Tonderai Chavhanga,13. Gcobani Bobo,12. Jean De Villiers (C) / Dylan Des Fountain,11. Sireli Naqelevuki / Nick Koster,10. Peter Grant,9. Ricky Januarie,8. Duane Vermeulen,7 Francois Louw,6. Schalk Burger,5. Andries Bekker,4. Adriaan Fondse,3. Brian Mujati,2. Schalk Brits,1. JD Moller


Reserves:16. Deon Fourie,17. Wicus Blaauw,18. AJ Venter,19. Luke Watson,20. Bolla Conradie,21. Dylan Des Fountain / Nick Koster,22. Percy Montgomery
