DHL Stormers Head Coach Robbie Fleck has named a 25-man touring squad for the Vodacom Super Rugby clash with the Sunwolves in Singapore this weekend.
Outside back Khanyo Ngcukana and prop Alistair Vermaak are the two additions to the squad for the historic first-ever DHL Stormers game in Singapore.
Fleck said that the bye week allowed the players to recharge, and added that they are determined to make the most of their trip to Singapore both on and off the field.
“The players enjoyed the break and the week off has allowed a lot of the players to get rid of some niggles.
“We are the first DHL Stormers side to play there [Singapore], so it is a similar situation to when we travelled to Argentina. It is a long way to travel and we are going to enjoy the sights and sounds of Singapore, but we know we have a job to do and we need to come back with a win,” he said.
Following their narrow loss to the Waratahs at DHL Newlands, Fleck wants to see a convincing performance from his side in Singapore.
“Momentum is key and we are coming off a loss, so it is vital that we come back with a win to start phase three of our campaign,” he said.
*DHL Western Province will take on the EP Kings at City Park in Athlone at 16h00 on Saturday.
Tickets for will be available at the gate at R20 for adults and R10 for scholars, while season tickets for DHL Newlands will also be valid for the match.
