    Burger to lead Stormers

    2014-02-04 13:48
    Cape Town - Stormers head coach Allister Coetzee has announced his starting line-up for Friday's pre-season friendly against the Kings in Port Elizabeth (kick-off 19:00).

    Flank Schalk Burger will captain the team this week, with Jaco Taute lining up at fullback and Argentina lock Manuel Carizza making his first appearance for the Stormers.

    Taute will be joined in the back three by Scott van Breda - who scored the winning try against the Bulls in Polokwane last weekend - and Kobus van Wyk who gets another run in the No 14 jersey.

    Squad captain Jean de Villiers gets a complete break this weekend, with Damian de Allende and Michael van der Spuy starting at centre and Nic Groom will start at scrumhalf.

    The only change up front this week sees Carizza - who is over his groin niggle - replace Ruan Botha in the No 5 jersey, whilst replacements Sikhumbuzo Notshe (loose forward) and Devon Williams (wing) join the extended match-day squad this week.
