Stormers named for Boland warmup

Stormers coach Alistair Coetzee has named an interesting lineup for this weekend’s final warmup game against Boland, with the selection of Elgar Watts (ahead of Lionel Cronje) at flyhalf the one most likely to get the tongues wagging.

The team shows a fair few changes to the unit that narrowly beat the Sharks on Saturday, with stalwarts Schalk Burger and Jean de Villiers returning to the side after missing out over the weekend. Tim Whitehead joins de Villiers in the centres, leaving Paul Bosch on the bench and Juan de Jongh on the sidelines. The first choice wingers, Bryan Habana and Gio Aplon are also omitted from this understrength backline, although Ricky Januarie and Conrad Jantjes have both been retained.

Up front, Rynhardt Elstadt moves into the second row after playing at flank against the Sharks, while CJ van der Linde moves to his favourite position of tighthead prop, after wearing the number 1 jersey against the Sharks. There’s a welcome return to the side for number 8 Nick Koster, who has had a nightmare run with injuries over the last few years and has also had to suffer an ill-fated attempt to turn him into a wing.

Stormers:
15. Conrad Jantjes 14. Danie Poolman 13. Tim Whitehead 12. Jean De Villiers 11. JJ Engelbrecht 10. Elgar Watts 9. Ricky Januarie 8. Nick Koster 7. Pieter Louw 6. Schalk Burger (Capt) 5. De Kock Steenkamp 4. Ryhnardt Elstadt 3. CJ Van Der Linde 2. Tiaan Liebenberg 1. Wicus Blaauw

Reserves:16. Siyabonga Ntubeni 17. Steven Kitshoff 18. Frans Malherbe 19. Adriaan Fondse 20. Quinn Roux 21. Francois Louw 22. Ruan Kitshoff 23. Siya Kolisi 24. Nic Groom 25. Lionel Cronje 26. Paul Bosch 27. Johann Sadie
