The Stormers coach John Dobson has named his team that will take on the Bulls at Newlands in a Super Rugby clash on Saturday evening.
The Stormers, who started the season with an impressive 27-0 win over the Hurricanes last week, have had to make a few changes after losing Siya Kolisi and Bongo Mbonambi to injury, and Dobson has brought Johan Du Toit and Scarra Ntubeni into the starting line-up.
Steven Kitshoff will captain the team, while his fellow prop Fran Malherbe, will make his 100th appearance for the Stormers.
While the Bulls lost their opening game of the season to the Sharks, Dobson says he is expecting a tough game, especially in the front row.
While Dobson had the option to shift Jaco Coetzee to number eight, the coach says he feels Coetzee’s future is at number six.
While going with a 6-2 split on the bench again, Dobson has brought Jean-Luc Du Plessis onto the bench, as he offers cover for the kicking too. – Report by Rob Delport
