There are two changes to the DHL Western Province starting line-up for the SuperSport Rugby Challenge encounter against Cell C Sharks XV in Durban on Friday.

There is one change in the forward pack and one in the backline for the clash, which kicks off at 15h00 on Friday at KP2 on the outer grounds at Jonsson Kings Park.

Hooker Daniel Jooste is back from injury to take his place in the starting line-up, while David Brits makes his first start of the season at outside centre.
