DHL Stormers change five for Lions at home
April 17, 2014
Springbok captain Jean de Villiers is back in the DHL Stormers line-up in one five changes to the team for Saturday's Vodacom Super Rugby clash against the Lions at DHL Newlands (kick-off 17h05).

De Villiers resumes the team captaincy from Duane Vermeulen and will line up at inside centre, with Damian de Allende shifting back to the right-wing – in place of the injured Kobus van Wyk – for the DHL Stormers’ second all-South African encounter of the season.

In other changes amongst the backs this week, Nic Groom and Demetri Catrakilis return to form a new-look halfback combination for the Stormers, with Peter Grant shifting to fullback and scrumhalf Louis Schreuder and fullback Jaco Taute dropping down to the bench.

The DHL Stormers pack remains unchanged from their previous clash – against the Waratahs in Cape Town two weeks ago – but there are a number of additions amongst the replacements.

Joining Schreuder and Taute on the bench this week are fit-again prop Pat Cilliers and lock Jurie van Vuuren – replacing the injured pair of Oli Kebble and Tazz Fuzani, respectively – whilst winger Devon Williams, the top try-scorer in the 2014 Vodacom Cup, comes into a Super Rugby matchday squad for the first time in his fledgling career.

DHL Stormers team: Peter Grant, Damian de Allende, Juan de Jongh, Jean de Villiers (captain), Sailosi Tagicakibau, Demetri Catrakilis, Nic Groom, Duane Vermeulen, Siya Kolisi, Nizaam Carr, Michael Rhodes, Ruan Botha, Frans Malherbe, Deon Fourie, Steven Kitshoff. Replacements: Stephan Coetzee, Pat Cilliers, Brock Harris, Jurie van Vuuren, Sikhumbuzo Notshe, Louis Schreuder, Devon Williams, Jaco Taute.
