Habana back for Stormers
April 24, 2013
The return of Bryan Habana on the left-wing is one of three changes to the Stormers starting XV against the Hurricanes in Palmerston North on Friday. Habana is back to full fitness after sustaining a knee injury in early March.

Habana is one of just three changes to the Stormers starting XV (from the Sharks match two weeks ago), with Damian de Allende dropping to the bench and Gio Aplon shifting across to the right-wing.

Pat Cilliers will start at tighthead prop, in the only change up front.

Scarra Ntubeni (hooker), Brok Harris (prop) and Rynhardt Elstadt (as lock and flank cover) and scrumhalf Nic Groom will all be on the bench.

Ntubeni - who picked up a shoulder injury during pre-season training - will make his first appearance of the season should he take to the field on Friday, whilst Elstadt is also back from a shoulder niggle after missing the Cheetahs and Sharks clashes.

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

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