Duvenage withdrawn

PUBLISHED: June 17, 2011

Dewaldt Duvenage has been withdrawn from the DHL Stormers team to take on the Toyota Cheetahs in Saturday’s final Vodacom Super Rugby league clash.

Duvenage who has a quad strain, will not be risked and is expected to be available for any potential play-off fixture.

Louis Schreuder will start in the number 9 jersey, with Nick Groom providing cover from the bench.

In that, Duvenage provided flyhalf cover for Peter Grant, his withdrawal has meant the bench has been reshuffled as well, with Conrad Jantjes dropping out and Earl Rose being included as specialist flyhalf and fullback cover.
