Stormers coach Robbie Fleck is pleased to have Springbok Damian De Allende and Blitzboks star Seabelo Senatla back for his team, as the Stormers prepare to host the Sharks in a must-win Super Rugby game at Newlands on Saturday.
Both teams will be gunning it out for a win in this last pool game, with a place in the quarter-finals up for grabs, and Fleck has made four changes to the starting team that beat the Sunwolves last weekend.
Fleck says with just the one enforced change, due to the injury of Herschel Jantjies, they have been able to build on last week, and there have been too many disruptions.
While Jantjies’ absence is disappointing, Fleck says he has full confidence in Jano Vermaak and Justin Phillips to step up in the role.
After being given the week off against the Sunwolves, Fleck is happy to have De Allende back at centre.
Fleck says they know what is on line this weekend, and they know that if they want to stay alive in the competition, they must win on Saturday.
The former Springbok centre says that they know how tough the Sharks will be, so the Stormers will take nothing for granted. Report by Rob Delport
