Stormers coach Rassie Erasmus has included Nick Koster on the right wing at the expense of Tonderai Chavhanga in his side to play the Lions in a Super 14 rugby match at Newlands, on Saturday.

The Fijian wing, Sireli Naqelevuki who was surprisingly relegated to the bench against the Bulls last week, will take Koster’s place left on the leftwing.

Fullback Conrad Jantjes is still out injured and Percy Montgomery retains his place.

This is also the case with flyhalf Willem de Waal who will be playing his first home for the Stormers.

He has only played a home match at Newlands as a Western Province Currie Cup player.

In the pack the lock Adriaan Fondse makes an expected return and he swops places with AJ Venter who moves out ot the bench. Prop JD Moller returns from injury and he’ll warm the substitutes’ bench at the start of the match.


Percy Montgomery; Nick Koster, Gcobani Bobo, Jean de Villiers (captain), Sireli Naqelevuki; Willem de Waal, Ricky Januarie; Luke Watson, Danie Vermeulen, Schalk Burger, Andries Bekker, Adriaan Fondse, Brian Mujati, Schalk Brits, Wicus Blaauw.

Reserves: Deon Fourie, JD Moller, AJ Venter, Francois Louw, Dewaldt Duvenage, Tonderai Chavhanga and Peter Grant.
