Allister Coetzee has announced his team to face the Blues at Eden Park on Saturday.

There are quite a few changes from the side that lost to the Western Force in Perth last Friday. JD Moller comes into the side to replace the injured JC Kritzinger who picked up a hamstring injury in the last match.

Adriaan Fondse will get his first start of the season at lock after playing a few Vodacom Cup games recently. Dewald Duvenage replaces the erratic Ricky Januarie which is good news for the Stormers backline as he possesses a very good pass.

Juan De Jongh has also recovered from injury and will take his place alongside the Worlds Greatest 13.

Here is the team to take on the Blues:

Stormers: 15 Gio Aplon, 14 Sireli Naqelevuki, 13 Jaque Fourie, 12 Juan de Jongh, 11 Bryan Habana, 10 Peter Grant, 9 Dewaldt Duvenage, 8 Duane Vermeulen, 7 François Louw, 6 Schalk Burger (captain), 5 Andries Bekker, 4 Adriaan Fondse, 3 Brok Harris, 2 Tiaan Liebenberg, 1 JD Moller.
Bench: 16 Deon Fourie, 17 Eusebio Guinazu, 18 Anton van Zyl, 19 Pieter Louw, 20 Ricky Januarie, 21 Willem de Waal, 22 Tim Whitehead.

  • Now Stormers could win this one with Dewaldt at scrummie. Also De Jongh will make a difference.

    Good luck Stormers. Going to be tough but they could win it.

    I am so not a fan of Aplon in fact every time he does play well (which I must concede is quite often) I am sooo surprised.

  • @Hertford Highlander (Comment 22) : I think its just you, duwenage is pretty good on defence, grant is probably the best tackling flyhalf in sa(another natal boy in the butch james,honiball mould) and if u don’t know much about dejong the one thing I can tell u is the boy is a seriously aggressive defender

    Highlanders by 1 point
    Chiefs will win by more….looked good last weekend they could still make the semis…they have great firepower all over the park.

  • @Hertford Highlander (Comment 35) : I hear what u saying but grant is actually quite a big chap and dejong has some serious mongrel. He is one of those freakishly strong little guys. I was suspect when he first came on the scene as he replaced another young “star” morgan newman who I don’t rate but he realy has impressed me. Sometimes doesn’t pass enough but loves running at defenders

  • @Hertford Highlander (Comment 39) : :shock: is this possible??

    seriously I didn’t watch rugby for last 3 weeks (except hour highlights of sharks game) so I cannot insigthfully comment.

    I think about shouting for Bulls, one because they are a saffa team, second because I gather it may be better for the sharks to have one or even two teams in clear lead and the rest scrapping for 3 and 4 place instead of this possible 3 or 4 place teams gathering points at the expense of 1 and 2 (whom the Sharks are not going to catch anyway).

    But for me you have to be a bit naive to think you waltz into Eden Park and hammer the Blues….. to be honest i have been in the past.

    But this Blues outfit look desperate to me. They basically have to win just about everything from here to make the semis.

    …..and there is no way on earth they are will get rolled on Saturday by this Burger bunch ! :lol:
