    Cape Town - The Stormers have named their final 34-man squad for the upcoming Super Rugby competition.

    As per SANZAR regulations, all Super Rugby franchises have to name a registered group of players ahead of the season.

    Injured players like hookers Tiaan Liebenberg (back) and Scarra Ntubeni (shoulder) and lock Eben Etzebeth (ankle) were thus all named in the Stormers squad but they will miss the opening rounds of action.

    The Stormers will open their 2013 Super Rugby campaign away to the Bulls on Friday, February 22. Their first home game is on Saturday, March 9 against the defending champion Chiefs.
