The Stormers forward pack remains unchanged for the Super Rugby derby, while there are two positional changes in the starting backline with JJ Engelbrecht shifting to outside centre and Dillyn Leyds on the wing.

As a result SP Marais comes in at fullback and Raymond Rhule is back on the wing.

There are two new faces on the replacements bench, with prop Frans Malherbe and flyhalf Jean-Luc du Plessis both making their return following long-term injuries.

Stormers Head Coach Robbie Fleck said that his team is looking forward to what should be another classic North-South derby at Newlands.

“It is always a special occasion when these two teams meet at Newlands and I am sure this match will be no exception.

“We are focused on building on the positive aspects of our win against the Rebels last week and ensuring that we are clinical in our execution on Saturday,” he said.
