Vodacom Stormers coach Rassie Erasmus on Thursday announced his side for the Super 14 match against the Cheetahs at Newlands on Saturday (kick-off: 15:00).

He made only one change to the side that beat the Western Force in Perth in the last game of the overseas leg of their campaign, according to

Lock Ross Skeate goes back to the bench, with Erasmus preferring the heavier and more physical approach of Adriaan Fondse against the strong Cheetah pack.

Fondse was on the bench in the last game.

Scrumhalf Bolla Conradie is back from injury. He was forced to come back home early from tour due to a leg injury.

This week, however, there was doubt about his participation in Saturday’s game because of a bout of the flu.

The Springbok has been declared fit and he replaces the young Conrad Hoffmann.

Veteran All Black flyhalf Tony Brown is still on the bench, with Erasmus preferring to start with Peter Grant again.

  • Egon has been released from his contract! :evil:

    Wylie Human seems to be his replacement.

    Egon is currently playing for Hamiltons.

  • The good news is that Schalk Ferreira is training with the Stormers, so hopefully that wasn’t a career ending injury.
