Allister Coetzee today named the DHL Stormers team to take on the Waratahs at DHL Newlands on Saturday 19 May at 19h10.

There are 2 changes to the starting XV that beat the Cheetahs last week, the first a rotational change with the hookers trading jerseys. Liebenberg moves from the bench into the starting line-up with Fourie playing from the bench in jersey 16. The other change is an injury enforced change that sees Canadian International and London Irish no 8 Jebb Sinclair get his first start at the back of the scrum, in for the injured Nizaam Carr. DHL WP player Don Armand is named as cover on the bench in jersey 19.

This week also sees Duvenage get his 50th cap for the DHL Stormers and Habana will play his 100th Super Rugby game.

The DHL Stormers have won 9 from 10 starts this season and are currently 1 point behind the Bulls in the SA Conference, 4th on the overall log, but just 1 point off the top of the overall log.

The game is the DHL Stormers last home fixture until after the June international break when on 30 June they take on the Lions at DHL Newlands. The DHL Stormers in the next 2 weeks face the Sharks and the Bulls, both away, before the June international test window.
