Sevens and Junior Bok flyer Seabelo Senatla has been included in a DHL Stormers matchday 23 for the first time as coach Allister Coetzee names his side to take on the Vodacom Bulls at Newlands this weekend.

A re-shuffled backline sees Sailosi Tagicakibau shift to outside centre to accommodate the return of fit-again Gio Aplon at right wing. Juan de Jongh thus moves to 12, while Senatla is included in the number 23 jersey.

Up front, Schalk Burger returns to the fray and will captain the side from the number 7 jersey.

DHL Stormers: 15 Jaco Taute, 14 Gio Aplon, 13 Sailosi Tagicakibau, 12 Juan de Jongh, 11 Cheslin Kolbe, 10 Kurt Coleman, 9 Nic Groom, 8 Duane Vermeulen, 7 Schalk Burger (captain), 6 Nizaam Carr, 5 Ruan Botha, 4 Michael Rhodes, 3 Pat Cilliers, 2 Deon Fourie, 1 Alistair Vermaak.
Replacements: 16 Tiaan Liebenberg, 17 Sti Sithole, 18 Martin Dreyer, 19 Manuel Carizza, 20 Siya Kolisi, 21 Louis Schreuder, 22 Peter Grant, 23 Seabelo Senatla.

  • @JarsonX (Comment 6) : so this week you’re rooting for the Lions, next week against :)

    You’ve already won a jersey, though, but will be nice if you can get through to the end without dying.

  • @Rob, I actually hoped I could make it to end without losing a lifeline :mrgreen: but that really would need a lot of luck.

  • Tagicakibau at 13 might come back to bite them. Physical enough, but does he have the handling skills required?
