Stormers coach Robbie Fleck has named his team that will take on defending Super Rugby Champions Crusaders in a crunch game at Newlands on Saturday.

The Stormers will be looking to bounce back after a disappointing defeat against the Jaguares, and Fleck is pleased to have captain Siya Kolisi and fellow Springboks Peter-Steph Du Toit and Damian De Allende back in the line-up.

Fleck is expecting a tough battle up from amongst the forwards. But he is confident his pack will be up for the challenge.

While the Stormers are bottom of the South African conference, they are still confident they can reach the play-offs, and Fleck says there is a strong belief in the squad.

Kolisi is expecting a great atmosphere at Newlands on Saturday, and while he says the game will be tough, he feels his team can use the atmosphere to their benefit.

Kolisi says they will be going flat out against the Crusaders, and he says the whole team is really geared up for this game. – Report by Rob Delport
