    Cape Town - The Chiefs will be without Nepo Laulala and Sam Cane when they face the Stormers at Newlands on Saturday after both players were ruled out with concussion.

    Kick-off is at 17:15.

    The pair were concussed in the 28-12 victory over the Bulls in Hamilton last Saturday and do not board the plane with their team-mates for their two-match tour of South Africa.

    Other players unavailable for selection include Brad Weber, Mitchell Graham, Nathan Harris, James Tucker, Glen Fisiiahi, Chase Tiatia, Charlie Ngatai, Tim Nanai-Williams, Liam Polwart, Michael Allardice and the banned Johnny Faauli.

    Both the Chiefs and the Stormers are currently unbeaten in this year's tournament.
