Evan Roos returns as part of a re-jigged DHL Stormers lineup to lock horns with Munster in the Vodacom United Rugby Championship in Cape Town on Saturday.
There are three changes to the Stormers’ starting forward pack and one in the backline for the second match in an enthralling double-header at Cape Town Stadium.
Lock Ruben van Heerden partners Marvin Orie in the second row, while Hacjivah Dayimani and Willie Engelbrecht join Ben-Jason Dixon to form the loose trio.
Scrumhalf Paul de Wet will wear the No 9 jersey in a rotational switch with Herschel Jantjies, who is in line to make an impact off the replacements bench with Roos.
Head coach John Dobson said that his troops are looking forward to playing in the shadow of Table Mountain as they look to make it 20 consecutive wins on home turf.
“We have had some incredible support at home this season and we know that it will be another special atmosphere on Saturday,” he said.
“This is a great opportunity for us to build some momentum as we head towards the play-offs and with Western Province playing first it promises to be another memorable double-header.”
