Stormers Super rugby head coach Robbie Fleck has made four changes to his team to play the Sharks in the final regular season round match at Newlands on Saturday.

All four of the changes are in the backline as the forward pack that started in the victory against the Sunwolves last week remains unchanged, while fit-again hooker Scarra Ntubeni features in the only change among the forward replacements.

There is an all-new halfback pairing of Jano Vermaak and Josh Stander, while Damian de Allende is back in midfield and Seabelo Senatla returns from injury to take his place out on the wing.

Stormers Head Coach Fleck said that his team is looking forward to what should be a classic South African derby at Newlands.

“We have performed well at home this season and this is another opportunity for us to use that to our advantage.

“The key in a match like this will be to remain composed and accurate while operating at high intensity. It should be a great game to watch,” he said.
