Stormers coach John Dobson has made two changes to his starting lineup for Saturday’s Super Rugby match against the Blues at Newlands.
Dobson left the unbeaten Stormers side, which clinched a fourth straight win last week, largely unchanged. There are two personnel changes in the pack, though.
Chris van Zyl comes in at No 4 lock with Salmaan Moerat rotating to the bench. Wilco Louw cracks the nod at tighthead prop this week and his Springbok teammate Frans Malherbe shifts to the reserves.
Among the substitutes, Kwezo Blose has been selected to provide prop cover and he will make his Stormers debut if he is used off the bench. Loose forward Cobus Wiese replaces Johan du Toit, who falls out of the match 23.
