Coach Allister Coetzee has made four changes to his team to square up against the Bulls in a Super Rugby derby in Pretoria on Saturday.

Siya Kolisi returns to the number six jersey after being withdrawn last week on the eve of the Stormers' defeat to the Sharks.

Lock Andries Bekker has been withdrawn and is replaced in the starting line-up by De Kock Steenkamp.

Frans Malherbe gets a start at tighthead prop, with Brok Harris moving to the bench, and Deon Carstens packs down at loosehead as a replacement for Steven Kitshoff.

Kitshoff has been released to the SA U-20 squad for the Junior World Championship.

On the bench, Deon Fourie covers hooker, in place of Skara Ntubeni who drops out of the match 22, and Quinn Roux has also been included among the replacements.


Gio Aplon, Gerhard van den Heever, Juan de Jongh, Jean de Villiers (captain), Bryan Habana, Peter Grant, Dewaldt Duvenage, Jebb Sinclair, Rynhardt Elstadt, Siya Kolisi, De Kock Steenkamp, Eben Etzebeth, Frans Malherbe, Tiaan Liebenberg, Deon Carstens. Replacements: Deon Fourie, Brok Harris, Quinn Roux, Don Armand, Nick Fenton-Wells, Louis Schreuder, Burton Francis. – Sapa
