Former Springbok Schalk Burger has been named to captain an injury hit Stormers team in the North-vs-South Super Rugby derby match against the Bulls in Pretoria on Saturday.
Coach Allister Coetzee has been forced into making six enforced changes to the starting line-up, with three players on debut in the matchday 23 – lock Jean Kleyn in the starting line-up and prop Alistair Vermaak and scrumhalf Dylon Frylinck on the bench.
There are also six new faces on the bench, with Steven Kitshoff (knee), Frans Malherbe (concussion), Oli Kebble (concussion), Jurie van Vuuren (shoulder), Michael Rhodes (assortment of knocks), Louis Schreuder (broken thumb), Jean de Villiers (AC Joint) and Kobus van Wyk (wrist) all dropping out with an assortment of injuries after last weekend’s 29-28 win over the Highlanders.
The new players in the selection mix, either on the bench or in the starting XV, are Kleyn, Pat Cilliers, Vermaak, Martin Dreyer, Stephan Coetzee, Frylinck, Michael van der Spuy and Devon Williams, with Peter Grant, Cheslin Kolbe and Brok Harris promoted from the bench to starting roles.
Bulls captain Victor Matfield says that he was relieved that they ended a four-match losing streak when they beat the Cheetahs 26-21 at Loftus Versfeld.
Matfield rued the Bulls missed scoring opportunities and said that they still had hard work ahead of them as they need to win their remaining five round-robin matches to give them a realistic chance of reaching the playoffs.
“We will take this now and hopefully get some momentum and some confidence going into the next game, we know it is going to be another huge game on Saturday,” Matfield said.
“We will need to be even better than tonight.”
The Pretoria side are in 10th place on the overall Super Rugby table on 24 points and next face a Stormers side playing with renewed vigour.
