Peter Grant returns at flyhalf as one of five changes to the Stormers team to face the Brumbies in Canberra this weekend.

Allister Coetzee has lost Jaco Taute to injury once more, meaning a shift from wing to fullback for Gio Aplon (a rare stand-out last week). Import Sailosi Tagicakibau comes in for his first start in the number 11 jersey, with Grant in at 10 for benched Demetri Catrakilis. Jean de Jongh makes his return to the match 23 via the bench after missing the start of the season through injury.

Up front, Mike Rhodes continues the second-row merry-go-round as he starts in the number 5 jersey (De Kock Steenkamp having returned home injured). Frans Malherbe moves back into the starting team in the final change.

DHL Stormers:
15. Gio Aplon, 14. Kobus van Wyk, 13. Jean de Villiers (captain), 12. Damian de Allende, 11. Sailosi Tagicakibau, 10. Peter Grant, 9. Nic Groom, 8. Duane Vermeulen, 7. Schalk Burger, 6. Deon Fourie, 5. Michael Rhodes, 4. Ruan Botha, 3. Frans Malherbe, 2. Tiaan Liebenberg, 1. Steven Kitshoff
Substitutes: 16. Stephan Coetzee, 17. Oliver Kebble, 18. Brok Harris, 19. Siya Kolisi, 20. Nizaam Carr, 21. Louis Schreuder, 22. Demetri Catrakilis, 23. Juan de Jongh

  • Inexperience and unsettled combos will likely be there undoing but I’d love the Stormers to put one over the Brumbies.
