Vodacom Stormers include Jean and Sireli

PUBLISHED: February 17, 2009

Rassie Erasmus, head coach of the Vodacom Stormers, on Tuesday announced his team to play the Reds at Newlands on Friday 20 February. Kick-off is at 19h10.

Springbok centre Jean de Villiers and Dylan des Fountain are bracketed at centre. De Villiers is given more time to recover after leaving the field on a stretcher on Saturday against the Sharks after receiving a blow on the head.

Sireli Naqelevuki is also included on the left wing where he is bracketed with Nick Koster, who started last week. The big Fijian winger missed the game due to a chest injury he suffered in a friendly against Boland and he too will be monitored later this week before a final decision is being made.

Tickets are on sale at the Newlands Rugby Stadium Box office as of today and through Computicket, Shoprite Checkers and Checkers Hyperstores countrywide.
