Elton Jantjies has been dropped to the bench in favour of the inconsistent Gary Van Aswegan for the Stormers’ final match of the Super Rugby season.

Allister Coetzee has decided to put his faith in the injury prone Van Aswegan and is more likely looking ahead at the upcoming Currie Cup season.

In other changes, Jean de Villiers returns to captain the side which sees the promising Damian de Allende shift to the bench. Gio Aplon moves from wing to fullback in place of the injured Joe Pietersen, and his place on the right wing is taken up by Gerhard van den Heever.

Fit-again Rynhardt Elstadt returns to the side at no.7.

Record breaking winger Bryan Habana will play his final match for the Stormers against his old team. This will be his 57th and final appearance of which he has scored 18 tries.

Here is the team:

15. Gio Aplon
14. Gerhard van den Heever
13. Juan de Jongh
12. Jean de Villiers (captain)
11. Bryan Habana
10. Gary van Aswegen
9. Louis Schreuder
8. Nizaam Carr
7. Rynhardt Elstadt
6. Deon Fourie (vice-captain)
5. De Kock Steenkamp
4. Eben Etzebeth
3. Brok Harris
2. Scarra Ntubeni
1. Steven Kitshoff

16. Martin Bezuidenhout
17. Pat Cilliers
18. Gerbrandt Grobler
19. Don Armand
20. Nic Groom
21. Elton Jantjies
22. Damian de Allende

  • @wpw (Comment 1) :
    You’re worrying too much about van Aswege. He will have an experienced halfback like Brok to take the pressure off.

    In fact, I wont be surprised if they will merely use van Aswegen at 10 on defence, and opt for the silky attacking skills of Brok at first receiver on attack.

  • Easy to see why. This is a very important fixture, can`t rely on inconsistent Jantjies for this . . . 😈
