Vodacom Stormers coach Rassie Erasmus today announced his team to take on the Vodacom Bulls in the first match of the 2008 Vodacom Super 14.

Springbok centre Jean de Villiers will make a welcome return to rugby following a bicep injury he sustained in the IRB Rugby World Cup last year, and will lead his team onto the field in front of a packed Newlands on Saturday. Kick-off is at 5pm.

Whilst first choice fullback Conrad Jantjes is said to be fully recovered from a thumb injury, the coaching team opted to give him one more week to get to ensure he hits the ground running. Gio Aplon will wear the number 15 jersey in place of Jantjes.

15. Gio Aplon
