DHL Stormers change five for Cheetahs
April 03, 2013
DHL Stormers coach Allister Coetzee has made five changes to his team to take on the Toyota Cheetahs at Free State Stadium in Bloemfontein on Saturday (kick-off 17h05).

Springbok lock Andries Bekker will play in his 100th match for the DHL Stormers - making him the first Stormers player to reach this landmark for the franchise.

Of the five changes, one is positional, and two are injury-enforced after last week's 14-19 defeat to the Crusaders; with Steven Kitshoff, Michael Rhodes, Nic Groom and Jaco Taute all coming into the starting XV.

Kitshoff is back from his one-game suspension, whilst Rhodes and Taute replace Rynhardt Elstadt (shoulder) and Gerhard van den Heever (knee), respectively. Taute will line up at fullback, with Joe Pietersen shifting to the right-wing.

Rhodes will make his DHL Stormers debut in the No.7 jersey, having played for the Western Province Vodacom Cup team in recent weeks.

Two other members of the WP Vodacom Cup team have also been elevated to the Stormers squad ahead of Saturday, with lock Gerbrandt Grobler (on debut) and flyhalf Gary van Aswegen starting from the bench.
