Brits back in action

Stormers coach Kobus van der Merwe has made two changes to his starting XV for Saturday’s Vodacom Super 14 match against the Bulls.

Schalk Brits reclaims the No 2 jersey after missing the Sharks match with flu, so Hanyani Shimange finds himself back on the bench.

Chumani Booi, who made a big impact as a substitute in Durban last weekend, comes in on the right wing, with Rayno Benjamin named among the substitutes.

The Stormers have never lost to the Bulls at Newlands and have won six of their eight derbies. Their only defeat came at Loftus last year, when they were smashed 75-14.

15. Joe Pietersen, 14. Chumani Booi, 13. Marius Joubert, 12. De Wet Barry (C), 11. Jean De Villiers, 10. Peter Grant, 9. Neil De Kock, 8. Joe van Niekerk, 7 Schalk Burger, 6. Luke Watson, 5. Andries Bekker, 4. Ross Skeate, 3. Eddie Andrews, 2. Schalk Brits, 1. JD Moller
