Timely boost for Stormers

Flank Jaco Coetzee and scrumhalf Herschel Jantjies will both return from minor injuries to start for the Stormers in this Saturday’s clash with the Jaguares.

There are four changes in total for the Stormers’ encounter with the team from Argentina, which kicks off at 3:05pm on Saturday.

Tighthead prop Frans Malherbe and lock JD Schickerling both come into the starting lineup after playing off the bench last week, while both Coetzee and Jantjies are also back.

The Stormers will be looking to make it four straight wins this season, but coach John Dobson says his team want to raise their standards this week in what should be a tough examination.

‘We have managed to keep some settled combinations and we would like to see the result of that out on the pitch on Saturday with a clinical performance.

‘We know that we will have to be as accurate as possible, but that is a challenge we have embraced as we look to play the kind of rugby that our fans deserve.’
