Kurt Coleman and Jano Vermaak will start as the new halfback pairing for the Stormers against the Sharks in Durban on Saturday.
In a new-look backline, Coleman and Vermaak start in tandem ahead of Dillyn Leyds and Dewaldt Duvenhage. The switch-up sees Leyds shift to the left wing in place of Seabelo Senatla, who drops to the bench.
Damian de Allende is fast-tracked into the starting lineup to fill the midfield void left by Shaun Treeby, who is serving a three-week suspension.
Lock Chris van Zyl and centre Juan de Jongh are the new additions to the reserves list.
