There are two changes to the DHL Stormers team to face the Jaguares at DHL Newlands on Saturday, with Dan Kriel and Sikhumbuzo Notshe both getting an opportunity in the starting line-up.
Kriel comes in at inside centre to replace the injured Damian de Allende, whilst Notshe will start at No.8 with Nizaam Carr on the replacements bench.
The only other change to the match-day 23 that did duty in the 37-24 victory against the Vodacom Bulls last week sees World Sevens Player of the Year Seabelo Senatla named as a replacement, putting him in line to earn his first DHL Stormers cap since 2015.
DHL Stormers Head Coach Robbie Fleck said that he would like to see his team build on their performance last week against what is a very competitive Jaguares team.
“The win last week was encouraging, but there is still much we can improve on and we will be tested against a Jaguares team full of internationals,” he said.
