Allister Coetzee today named the DHL Stormers team to take on the Sharks, at Mr Price Kings Park – Durban, on Saturday 26 May at 19h10.

There is 1 injury enforced change and one positional change to the starting XV that beat the Waratahs last week, with Gerhard van den Heever moving up from the bench to right wing, in for the injured Joe Pietersen, who falls out of the match 22.
