Ackermann has opted for consistency, making just one forced change to his starting side which downed the Vodacom Blue Bulls 41-13 last weekend.

Jaco van der Walt will start at flyhalf as he slots in for the injured Marnitz Boshoff. Meanwhile, on the bench, Ackermann has drafted in Guy Cronje and Albertus ‘Kwagga’ Smith. Smith will celebrate his Absa Currie Cup debut should he get a run out on Saturday.

The match will kick off at 14h30.
