The Cape Crusaders

DHL Stormers head coach Alister Coetzee has named his team to take on the Crusaders in Christchurch on Saturday morning.

Coetsee has lost another lock to injury; Rhynhardt Elstadt will return to Cape Town to see a specialist after suffering a recurring shoulder injury while Siya Kolisi sits out this weeks game with an AC joint niggle picked up in the game against the Hurricanes. DHL WP U 21 player Jurie van Vuuren has been called up to the squad as lock and flank cover, Jurie is able to cover positions 4 and 7 and at this rate may see action sooner rather than later.

De Kock Steenkmap returns to the starting lineup after a lengthy injury and will be joined in the middle of the pack by Michael Rhodes, who earns his first start after 2 appearances from the bench. Steenkamp and Rhodes will have to gel quickly in order to sort out the team’s lineout woes, the Stormers lost 5 lineouts last week and lost out on quite a few scoring opportunities due to the misfiring set piece. Ruan Botha takes a seat on the bench.

Among the backs Nic Groom rotates into the starting lineup for the first time this season while numbers 10 to 15 remain the same, Kobus van Wyk deservedly keeps his starting place after much talk about being replaced by Samoan import Sailosi Tagicakibau. “Losi” will make his Stormers debut from the bench, Peter Grant will also make his Stormers return form the woodwork.

The DHL Stormers to face the Crusaders :

15. Jaco Taute
14. Kobus van Wyk
13. Jean de Villiers (captain)
12. Damian de Allende
11. Gio Aplon
10. Demetri Catrakilis

7. Schalk Burger (vice-captain)
6. Deon Fourie
5. De Kock Steenkamp
4. Michael Rhodes
