Grant crocked as Jantjies starts

Peter Grant is out of Super Rugby for the next month and Springbok flyhalf Elton Jantjies will get extended game time.

Stormers coach Allister Coetzee has selected fit again Juan de Jongh for the first time this season and welcomes back Jaco Taute. The Lions import has missed the last two matches because of injury. Taute is in the match 22 but Joe Pietersen again starts at fullback.

Dewald Duvenhage’s strong kicking game has also been favoured as scrumhalf.
