Eben Etzebeth, Frans Malherbe and Pieter-Steph du Toit will be rested as per the Bok management plan for the Stormers' match against the Sunwolves in Singapore.

Besides the absence of the Bok trio, the Stormers are also still without injured players Huw Jones, Jean-Luc du Plessis, Jano Vermaak, Cheslin Kolbe, Juan de Jongh, Damian de Allende, Steph de Wit, Leolin Zas and Scarra Ntubeni.

The Stormers are coming off a bye, and will be aiming for a fourth successive win in the competition, with Siya Kolisi set to lead the side in Singapore after being rested for their previous game against the Kings.

'We have made an encouraging start to the campaign, but we cannot afford to drop intensity coming off our bye week,' coach Robbie Fleck said. 

'We know how tough the Sunwolves can be on home turf, so it will be crucial that we maintain our focus for 80 minutes if we are to get the desired result.'

Stormers touring squad – Bjorn Basson, Kurt Coleman, Jan de Klerk, Dan du Plessis, Robert du Preez, Dewaldt Duvenage, Rynhardt Elstadt, JC Janse van Rensburg, Oli Kebble, Siya Kolisi (c), Dan Kriel, Dillyn Leyds, Wilco Louw, Godlen Masimla, Bongi Mbonambi, Sikhumbuzo Notshe, Caylib Oosthuizen, Ramone Samuels, JD Shickerling, Seabelo Senatla, Frans van Wyk, Chris van Zyl, EW Viljoen, Cobus Wiese, Damian Willemse.
