DHL Stormers named for Sharks clash

PUBLISHED: May 23, 2012

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 one 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. Gio Aplon shifts from right wing to fullback, to accommodate this change.

Captain of the victorious DHL WP team, Nick Fenton-Wells, is the only change to the bench, with the coach going with a 5/2split.

This week will see Deon Fourie get his 50th cap for the DHL Stormers, should he take to the field.
