Pumas coach Jimmy Stonehouse has made three changes to his starting XV to face the Sharks in Durban on Friday.
There is just one change to the backline, with wing Ruwellyn Isbell replacing Neil Maritz.
Among the forwards, there are two changes, as lock Cameron Lindsay drops to the bench for Hugo Kloppers, while hooker Marko Janse van Rensburg comes in for Simon Westraadt.
Stonehouse has again gone for a 5-2 split on the bench, as ex-Sharks flank Francois Kleinhans is brought in for Hilton Lobberts, while Jeandré Rudolph provides the extra forward replacement.
