Cilliers to start at loosehead prop for Stormers
March 27, 2013
Springbok Pat Cilliers will make his second start of the 2013 season, after being named at loosehead prop for the DHL Stormers' Vodacom Super Rugby clash against the Crusaders at DHL Newlands on Saturday (kick-off 19h10).

Cilliers comes in for the suspended Steven Kitshoff in the No.1 jersey in one of two changes to the Stormers starting line-up that claimed a 35-22 win over the previously unbeaten Brumbies this past weekend.

The other change is also in the front row, with hooker Tiaan Liebenberg (elbow) a late injury-victim.

Currie Cup-winning captain Deon Fourie will start in the No.2 jersey for the DHL Stormers, with Martin Bezuidenhout being named amongst the replacements once again.

Bezuidenhout, who is on loan from the Lions this season, will be joined on the bench by the experienced Brok Harris (77 Super Rugby appearances) - who, in turn, will be part of a Stormers matchday squad for the first time this year.

Speaking about the challenge of facing the Crusaders, who have beaten the Stormers in their last three encounters, coach Allister Coetzee said: "They're a top quality side - they're the Crusaders after all, a side that's won many (Super Rugby) competitions."

The DHL Stormers team to take on the Crusaders is as follows:

15. Joe Pietersen
14. Gio Aplon
13. Juan de Jongh
12. Jean de Villiers (captain)
