Home Vodacom Super Rugby 2019 Kitshoff back in Stormers

Kitshoff back in Stormers


Stormers coach Robbie Fleck had made four changes to his side that beat the Sharks two weeks back.

The biggest of the four sees the return of Springbok Steven Kitshoff back in the front row with Frans Malherbe.

Scarra Ntubeni also gets his start at hooker and Juarno Augustus gets his chance at the back of the scrum for the first time this season.

The backs sees only one change with Dillyn Leyds coming in at fullback.

Some more good news sees Cobus Wiese returning from injury and he will make his impact from the bench this Friday.

This is the last match at home before they go on their Australasian tour.

We are looking forward to being back at DHL Newlands for what will be a tough match against the Jaguares on Friday.

“The players are focused on raising our standards further as we look to keep building and creating momentum,” Fleck said.
