    Stormers pick Fourie at No 8

    2012-07-11 13:21
    Cape Town - Coach Allister Coetzee on Wednesday named his Stormers team to take on the Rebels at Newlands on Saturday. Kick-off at 15:00.

    There is one change to the loose-trio, with Deon Fourie selected at No 8 and Canadian international Jebb Sinclair dropping to bench. As a result Don Armand falls out of the match 22.

    In the only other change in the pack, Tiaan Liebenberg starts at hooker, while on the bench, Brok Harris returns in jersey 16, after missing the last game with a broken nose.

    The backline is unchanged from the one that beat the Cheetahs in Bloemfontein last week.

    Saturday’s game marks the Rebels' first ever match at Newlands.

    This weekend’s game will also serve as a farewell for many retiring and departing Rebels.

    Captain Stirling Mortlock and Al Campbell have both announced their retirements at season’s end, while Mark Gerrard, Julian Huxley and Tom Chamberlain will play overseas in 2013.
