    Stormers forced to shift Aplon

    2012-05-23 14:48
    Cape Town - Coach Allister Coetzee on Wednesday named his Stormers team to take on the Sharks in Durban on Saturday. Kick-off is at 19:10.

    There is one injury enforced change and one positional change to the starting XV that beat the Waratahs last week, with Gerhard van den Heever moving up from the bench to right wing, in for the injured Joe Pietersen (back strain), who falls out of the match 22.

    Gio Aplon shifts from right wing to fullback, to accommodate the change. Captain of the victorious WP Vodacom Cup team, Nick Fenton-Wells, is the only change to the bench, with the coach going with a 5/2 split.

    This week will see Deon Fourie get his 50th cap for the Stormers, should he take to the field.

    The Stormers have won 10 from 11 starts this season and are currently first in the SA Conference and first on the overall log.
