De Jongh back for Stormers
March 20, 2013
Fit-again Springbok centre Juan de Jongh will play in his first competitive match of the 2013 season and start at outside centre for the DHL Stormers in Saturday's Vodacom Super Rugby clash against the unbeaten Brumbies.

De Jongh having picked up a hamstring injury during a pre-season, but is back to full fitness and will replace Damian de Allende, who will be warming the bench after starting three matches in succession.

The return of De Jongh, for this clash at DHL Newlands, will see captain Jean de Villiers shift to inside centre.

Other changes see Gerhard van den Heever as a replacement for the injured Bryan Habana, whilst Dewaldt Duvenage takes over at scrumhalf from Nic Groom, who will revert to the bench.

There is just one change to the pack, with Springbok Tiaan Liebenberg, who made his comeback from the bench against the Chiefs, taking over at hooker and Deon Fourie starting amongst the replacements.

Joining Fourie, Groom and De Allende on the bench this week is Springbok back Jaco Taute - back in action again after taking a knock to his groin region against the Bulls in the Stormers' opening match of 2013.
