Fourie to lead the DHL Stormers
June 26, 2013
Deon Fourie will captain the DHL Stormers in Saturday's Vodacom Super Rugby encounter against the Toyota Cheetahs at DHL Newlands (kick-off 19h15).

Absa Currie Cup-winning captain Fourie, who will wear the No.7 jersey this weekend, takes over the team captaincy from injured Springbok skipper Jean de Villiers (sternum).

De Villiers, in turn, will be replaced in the No.13 jersey by fellow Bok Juan de Jongh in the only change to the starting line-up that defeated the Kings 19-11 on June 1.

Meanwhile, in two changes to the bench from the DHL Stormers' last Super Rugby appearance, hooker Scarra Ntubeni and prop Ross Geldenhuys (on debut) replace Martin Bezuidenhout and Chris Heiberg, respectively.

* Tickets are still available for Saturday's match and can be purchased at the DHL Newlands ticket office (until matchday), PostNet outlets and online at wprugby.ticketpros.co.za.
