Stormers coach Allister Coetzee has named an unchanged starting fifteen to take on the Chiefs on Saturday at Newlands.
Elton Jantjies starts in front of the Stormers’ home crowd for the first time, keeping Peter Grant on the bench for another week. His partnership with Nic Groom continues to grow, but whether he takes over the kicking duties, remains to be seen.
On the bench there is a return to action for Tiaan Liebenberg, who replaces Martin Bezuidenhout.
There is still no sign of Jaco Taute or Juan de Jongh through injury, while Schalk Burger remains a long term casualty.
