Stormers change four for Jaguares clash

Reading Time: 2 minutes

The unbeaten Stormers have made four changes to their team as they prepare to host the Jaguares at Newlands in a Super Rugby game on Saturday.

Having recovered from their injuries that saw them miss out on last week’s last-minute win against the Lions, Herschel Jantjies and Jaco Coetzee return to the side for this Saturday, while there are also starts for Frans Malherbe and JD Schickerling in the team named by coach John Dobson on Thursday.

Dobson says he will continue to rotate his props Frans Malherbe and Wilco Louw, and he also wants to do the same as lock and feels Schickerling deserves a start in the second row.

With the Jaguares strong at the breakdown, Dobson is happy to have Coetzee back at number six.

While there have been personnel changes in the Argentinean team, Dobson is not expecting a big tactical change in the Jaguares this season.

The Stormers coach says that he is expecting a physical encounter on Saturday, and does not expect an open game like last week’s 33-30 win over the Lions at Ellis Park. – Report by Rob Delport
