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.
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.
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
