DHL STORMERS SIDE TO TAKE ON THE CHIEFS ANNOUNCED

PUBLISHED: May 11, 2011


Allister Coetzee, head coach of the DHL Stormers, today named his team to take on the Chiefs at Waikato Stadium on Saturday 14 May.

The coach has made several changes to the side that faced the Crusaders last Saturday. Springboks Bryan Habana and Peter Grant are back following injury. They replace Johann Sadie and Lionel Cronje, the latter moving to the bench.

Prop Brok Harris comes in for CJ van der Linde who has not recovered from a hip flexer injury. CJ should return be back in action next week. Young prop Steven Kitshoff slots onto the bench as cover.

At 9, Ricky Januarie gets a run in the place of Dewaldt Duvenage. Duvenage has started all, but two games this season and is therefore being managed accordingly.
