Hello and welcome to our live coverage of the Super Rugby clash between the Stormers and the Brumbies from Newlands Stadium.
The Brumbies travel from Canberra to a very sunny and warm Mother City to meet the Stormers who lost their home game last weekend to their rivals the Sharks.
The three tries the Stormers have conceded this season ? including Saturday's controversial penalty try against the Sharks ? is the fewest of any team in the competition. This is a direct result of their 91 percent tackle success rate.
Meanwhile the Brumbies have been crossing the whitewash at regular intervals and notched up 15 tries in their three matches, tied at the top of that statistic with the Chiefs.
The home side welcome scrum-half Nic Groom and winger Kobus van Wyk to the starting lineup. Groom is replacing the injured Jarno Vermaak, while Louis Schreauder comes in as cover on the bench. Left winger Leolin Zas ? who has impressed with two tries from his three starts ? makes way for van Wyk.
The Brumbies remain unchanged from the side that put 31 points on the Force in Perth last week.
Referee: Jaco Peyper
Assistant Referees: Jaco van Heerden,
TMO: Marius Jonker
