Rassie Erasmus, head coach of the Vodacom Stormers, on Wednesday announced his team to play the Bulls at Loftus in Pretoria on Saturday 7 March. Kick-off is at 17h00.

The Stormers website reports that the coach made three changes – enforced by injury – to the team that lost to the Blues at Newlands the past Saturday in their round three Vodacom Super 14 match.

Prop JD Moller has not recovered sufficiently from the shoulder injury that forced him off the field last Saturday. Youngster Wicus Blaauw takes over at tigthead prop, with Schalk Ferreira coming onto the bench.

Springbok prop Brian Mujati has been included after there were some doubts about his fitness. He sustained a neck injury against the Blues. Schalk Burger is also fine after hurting his calf last Saturday.

Former Springbok AJ Venter also gets his first start for the Stormers. He will be playing at lock in place of Adriaan Fondse, who moves to the substitutes’ bench.

Nick Koster gets a chance to start at left wing in place of big Fijian wing Sireli Naqelevuki, who reverts to the bench.

Dewaldt Duvenhage has recovered from a groin operation and is the new reserve scrumhalf. He takes over from veteran Bolla Conradie. Percy Montgomery is still at fullback. Conrad Jantjes has not recovered from a calf injury.

The Vodacom Stormers team is as follows:

15. Percy Montgomery
14. Tonderai Chavhanga
13. Gcobani Bobo
12. Jean De Villiers (C)
11. Nick Koster
10. Willem De Waal
9. Ricky Januarie
8. Luke Watson
7 Duane Vermeulen
6. Schalk Burger
5. Andries Bekker
4. AJ Venter
3. Brian Mujati
2. Schalk Brits
1. Wicus Blaauw

16. Deon Fourie
17. Schalk Ferreira
18. Adriaan Fondse
19. Francois Louw
20. Dewaldt Duvenage
21. Peter Grant
22. Sireli Naqelevuki

  • What do you get when you throw, JP Nel, Bakkies & Pakslae in the one side and Percy, Puke Watson, Schalk Burger & AJ on the other side in a Bull Ring Cook Pot.

    Sure somewhere down the line you’ll get a yellow to red card landmine and one hell of a Stormers predicable hiding.

    Say no more.
