The injury-enforced selection of Johan du Toit and Scarra Ntubeni are the only personnel changes to the Stormers starting lineup for their match against the Vodacom Bulls at Newlands on Saturday.
Serious injuries to captain Siya Kolisi and Bongi Mbonambi have had coach John Dobson calling on Du Toit – younger brother of Pieter-Steph – to start at No 8 and Ntubeni to come in as the starting hooker.
Dobson left the rest of the run-on XV unchanged.
Meanwhile, hooker Chad Solomon, utility forward Cobus Wiese, No 8 Juarno Augustus and centre Jean-Luc du Plessis all return to the much-changed bench.
