DHL Stormers flyhalf Peter Grant has been withdrawn from the squad to take on the MTN Lions in Johannesburg this weekend. Grant took a blow to the knee in practice on Tuesday and has not recovered sufficiently.
Gary Van Aswegen will wear the 10 jersey, whilst Lionel Cronje gets a call up, from the DHL WP Vodacom Cup team, to the bench as cover.
The DHL Stormers have a bye after this week’s game and Grant is expected to recover fully for the following match vs. the Sharks on 30 April at DHL Newlands.
Cronje’s call up from the DHL WP Vodacom Cup team has necessitated the following changes to the DHL WP 22 announced to take on the Leopards in Potchefstroom on Saturday.
In positional changes Marcel Brache moves from centre to fullback, with Berton Klaasen moving up from the bench to inside centre and Tim Whitehead shifting to outside centre. Michael Van Der Spuy will wear 22 as utility back cover.
