Stormers coach Robbie Fleck has made five changes to his starting lineup to face the Sunwolves in Hong Kong on Saturday.
Regular captain Siya Kolisi’s workload is being managed, which will see him play off the bench, while lock Chris van Zyl takes over the leadership of the team.
As a result, there will be two changes in the pack with Cobus Wiese coming in on the flank and Nizaam Carr replacing Sikhumbuzo Nothse at No 8. JC Janse van Rensburg replaces the injured Steven Kitshoff.
There are two changes to the backline, with Jean-Luc du Plessis making his first start of the season at flyhalf and Seabelo Senatla coming in on the wing.
Stormers – 15 SP Marais, 14 Seabelo Senatla, 13 JJ Engelbrecht, 12 Damian de Allende, 11 Dillyn Leyds, 10 Jean-Luc du Plessis, 9 Dewaldt Duvenage, 8 Nizaam Carr, 7 Cobus Wiese, 6 Kobus van Dyk, 5 Pieter-Steph du Toit, 4 Chris van Zyl (captain), 3 Wilco Louw, 2 Ramone Samuels, 1 JC Janse van Rensburg.
