The Highlanders named an unchanged team for their Super 14 match against the Stormers in Cape Town on Saturday.


Highlanders coach Glenn Moore kept faith on Thursday with the same players who secured a first win this season against the Cheetahs last weekend.


The competition’s leading tryscorer Michael Hobbs, who notched his fourth try in Bloemfontein, is retained at flyhalf.


Kendrick Lynn will start again at outside center and Fetu’u Vainikolo was named on the left wing.


Both scored in the 31-24 win last Saturday.


All Blacks scrumhalf Jimmy Cowan will captain the team.


The only change is on the bench, where Bronson Murray was named by Moore ahead of Chris King as reserve prop.
