Coetzee changes five for Brumbies
March 19, 2014
DHL Stormers head coach Allister Coetzee has made five changes to his team for Saturday's Vodacom Super Rugby meeting with the Brumbies in Canberra (kick-off 10h40 SA time).

One of the five changes is positional, with Gio Aplon shifting from wing to fullback, meaning a first-ever DHL Stormers start for Sailosi Tagicakibau (at No.11), with Peter Grant coming in at flyhalf for Demetri Catrakilis.

Grant, who will make his 93rd appearance for the DHL Stormers, will make his first start of 2014, whilst fit-again centre Juan de Jongh - who flew over to Sydney this week - will sit on the bench as he looks for his first taste of action this season.

Up front, meanwhile, fit-again tighthead prop Frans Malherbe (toe injury) takes over from Brok Harris in the No.3 jersey - with the latter reverting to the bench - and Michael Rhodes (shoulder) is back in the mix as the lock replacement for De Kock Steenkamp, who flew home with a groin injury earlier this week.

The DHL Stormers team versus the Brumbies is as follows:

15. Gio Aplon
14. Kobus van Wyk
13. Jean de Villiers (captain)
12. Damian de Allende
11. Sailosi Tagicakibau
