Stormers recall Springbok RWC winner for visit of Cardiff
The backline that did duty against Zebre Parma in Stellenbosch last week is unchanged.
The only other change to the matchday squad sees hooker Chad Solomon come onto the replacements bench in place of the injured Andre-Hugo Venter.
Stormers Head Coach John Dobson said that the focus is on building some winning momentum after last week’s performance against Zebre Parma.
“We have managed to keep some continuity in our team this week which is pleasing.
“We know that we can improve in many areas and we will have to be sharp as ever to get the result we need on Sunday,” he said.
