The Stormers will have to do without the service of their young and upcoming flyhalf Jean-Luc Du Plessis after he was ruled out for four to six weeks with a groin injury.
The 22-year-old went for scans on Monday and will not be available for the Stormers. He has been playing some great rugby for the Stormers this season so far and this will surely give Robert Du Preez an extended run at the number 10 jumper.
For the Stormers there were no new injuries sustained in the 41-10 Super Rugby victory against the Southern Kings in Port Elizabeth.
The Stormers are on a bye week in Round 4 before returning to action away in Singapore against the Sunwolves later this month.
