Wing Gerhard van den Heever has been included in the Sunwolves’ starting lineup to face the Stormers at Newlands on Saturday.
There are five changes from the team that were beaten by the Brumbies last weekend.
Four of those five changes come among the forwards as captain Dan Pryor misses out and is replaced by Shuhei Matsuhashi, while Ryota Hasegawa also comes into the loose trio for Yoshitaka Tokunaga.
There are a further two changes to the front row as Conan O’Donnell and Jaba Bregvadze both come off the bench to start in place of Takuma Asahara and Nathan Vella respectively.
The only change to the backline, which contains Van den Heever, who played at Newlands in 2012 and 2013, sees Josh Timu replace Jason Emery.
