JOHANNESBURG – Stormers hooker Scarra Ntubeni and lock JD Schickerling will be available for selection against the Sharks in their Super Rugby match at Newlands on Saturday.

Both players featured for Western Province in the SuperSport Rugby Challenge on Sunday in their return from injury.

Scrumhalf Justin Phillips is battling a rib injury and will be assessed in the week to determine if he is fit to play.

The Stormers will also be without fullback SP Marais, who has a quad injury, as well as lock Eben Etzebeth who continues to recover from a back and nerve injury.

The other players on the long-term injury list are Jaco Coetzee (repeated concussions), Seabelo Senatla (groin) and Dan du Plessis (knee), with their return to be determined by how their recovery progresses.
