    Cape Town - There are four changes to the Stormers starting line-up to face the Jaguares at Newlands on Friday.

    Forwards Steven Kitshoff, Scarra Ntubeni and Juarno Augustus will all make their first starts of the season, while the only change to the backline sees Dillyn Leyds come in at fullback, for the encounter which kicks off at 19:10.

    Utility forward Cobus Wiese also makes his return from injury on the replacements bench for the clash with the South American team.

    Stormers coach Robbie Fleck said that following their bye last week, his team are aiming to build more momentum before their four-week tour of Australasia.
