Stormers give Bongi a go

Bongi Mbonambi will get a rare start at hooker in one of four changes to the Stormers side to face the Force in Perth.

Mbonambi has struggled for game time since joining from the Vodacom Bulls during the off-season, and will make just his second start of the season, with Scarra Ntubeni dropping to the bench.

Elsewhere in the forward pack, Ruan Botha comes into the second row in place of Jean Kleyn, while Siya Kolisi replaces the injured Michael Rhodes, with Schalk Burger shifting to blindside flank.

The only change among the backs sees Louis Schreuder rotate with Nic Groom at scrumhalf.

The Stormers have a good record in Perth, having won three of their four previous matches there, and will be looking to end their tour on a high after victory over the Waratahs last weekend.

Stormers – 15 Cheslin Kolbe, 14 Kobus van Wyk, 13 Juan de Jongh (c), 12 Damian de Allende, 11 Dillyn Leyds, 10 Demetri Catrakilis, 9 Louis Schreuder, 8 Nizaam Carr, 7 Schalk Burger, 6 Siya Kolisi, 5 Ruan Botha, 4 Eben Etzebeth, 3 Frans Malherbe, 2 Bongi Mbonambi, 1 Steven Kitshoff.
Subs: 16 Scarra Ntubeni, 17 Alistair Vermaak, 18 Vincent Koch, 19 Jean Kleyn, 20 Sikhumbuzo Notshe, 21 Nic Groom, 22 Kurt Coleman, 23 Huw Jones.
