Rassie Erasmus, head coach of the Vodacom Stormers, today announced his team to play the Reds at Suncorp Stadium, Brisbane, on Saturday 8 March.

 

Kick-off is at 11h05, South African time.

 

The side sees some changes to the team that lost to the Crusaders at Newlands last weekend. Luke Watson moves back to the No.6 position with Robbie Diack coming into the side at No.8 and Pieter Myburgh providing cover on the bench.


Schalk Brits gets his chance to start at hooker.
