DHL-StormersFit-again forwards De Kock Steenkamp and Deon Fourie have been named in the DHL Stormers starting line-up for Saturday’s Vodacom Super Rugby encounter against the Southern Kings at DHL Newlands (kick-off 17:05).

Steenkamp replaces Gerbrandt Grobler in the second row, whilst Don Armand makes way for Fourie on the side of the scrum. Grobler and Armand drop to the bench, with Marius Coetzee and Rohan Kitshoff dropping out of the matchday 22 from last weekend.

Lock Steenkamp has not featured for the DHL Stormers since picking up a chest injury against the Blues on May 3, whilst hooker-cum-flank Fourie missed last Saturday’s 20-15 win over the Reds with a rib injury.

“For the first time this season, injuries have not dictated to us from the previous match,” said DHL Stormers coach Allister Coetzee.

“Both De Kock and Deon have been key men for us and, thus, they retain their starting place – despite Gerbrandt and Don having done so well for us against the Reds.

“Our depth on the bench has – in turn – also been bolstered, so we will be looking to those players to make an impact when called upon.”

Tickets are still available for Saturday’s match and can be purchased at the DHL Newlands ticket office (until matchday), PostNet outlets and online at wprugby.ticketpros.co.za.
