The Stormers side to take on a ‘second string’ Bulls side has been announced and there is no room for the ‘Fijian Sleepwalker’ who drops out of the match 22 altogether.
Joe Pietersen makes a welcome return at fullback with Gio Aplon moving to right wing in place of the sleepwalking giant. Bryan Habana also returns on the left wing after recovering from the rib injury he sustained against the Crusaders which means the promising Tim Whitehead moves to the bench.
The last change sees Wicus Blaauw returning to the starting lineup after making a full recovery and takes over from JD Moller who drops out of the match 22 in favour of the versatile Argentinian Eusebio Guinazu.
Here ARE the team:
Stormers: 15 Joe Pietersen, 14 Gio Aplon, 13 Jaque Fourie, 12 Juan De Jongh, 11 Bryan Habana, 10 Peter Grant, 9 Dewaldt Duvenage, 8 Duane Vermeulen, 7 Francois Louw, 6 Schalk Burger (captain), 5 Andries Bekker, 4 Adriaan Fondse, 3 Brok Harris, 2 Tiaan Liebenberg, 1 Wicus Blaauw.
Replacements: 16 Deon Fourie, 17 Eusebio Guinazu, 18 Anton Van Zyl, 19 Pieter Louw, 20 Ricky Januarie, 21 Willem De Waal, 22 Tim Whitehead.
