Stormers flanker Pieter-Steph du Toit will play his 50th Super rugby match for the Cape Town side when they host the Highlanders at Newlands on Saturday.

The two-time SA Rugby Player of the Year will feature in a Stormers team that has just one injury-enforced change for the clash with the New Zealand side.

The only change to the starting line-up sees Scarra Ntubeni at hooker in place of the injured Bongi Mbonambi, with Chad Solomon set to make his Stormers debut from the replacements bench.

The only other change is among the replacements as a fit-again Wilco Louw comes back into the match-day squad.

Stormers Head Coach Robbie Fleck said that his team is looking forward to playing in front of the Newlands Faithful again.

“The atmosphere last week was incredible and the players can’t wait to get out there again and play in front of our fans.

“We want to keep building and improving as we approach the end of the season and this match will be another important step forward for us,” he said.
