Holmes takes on Elstadt’s role

Tyrone Holmes has been brought straight into the WP side at blindside flank in place of the injured Rynhardt Elstadt.

Holmes has recovered from injury and replaces Elstadt, who will be sidelined with a rib problem for three weeks.

Further changes for Saturday’s clash against the Sharks see Brok Harris replacing Frans Malherbe in the front row, as Malherbe has joined the Springboks in New Zealand.

Meanwhile, fullback Joe Pietersen is over his injury but will only feature from the bench.
