Stormers unchanged for final

Cape Town - The Stormers made one change to their match-day squad of 22 players which will do duty in Saturday's Super 14 final against the Bulls at the Orlando Stadium in Soweto.

Kick-off is at 17:00.

Prop JC Kritzinger has been included on the bench at the expense of the Argentine-born Eusebio Guinazu. The 23-year-old Kritzinger made his debut for the WP Currie Cup team against the Bulls in 2008, and now he's set to play in his first Super 14 final, also against the Bulls.

Stormers coach Allister Coetzee said it was always on the cards to recall Kritzinger to the match-day squad once he overcame a calf injury which sidelined him for the last four matches.

"JC came through a fitness test on Tuesday, so we're pleased to be able to use him for the final," said Coetzee.

"He offers us cover in both the loosehead and tighthead positions, so it's great to have him on board.

"In the pecking order of the props JC has always been right up there, so it was a natural progression once he was declared fit."
