Stormers name unchanged team to face Chiefs
Cape Town - Stormers coach Robbie Fleck named an unchanged match-day squad for the Super Rugby clash against the Chiefs at Newlands on Saturday (kick-off 15:05).
The Stormers will be looking to make it six straight wins at Newlands this season, following victories against the Jaguares, Blues, Reds, Rebels and Bulls.
Captain Siya Kolisi will lead a settled outfit which features 12 players with more than 50 Super Rugby caps in the match-day squad.
Fleck said that continuity at this stage of the season is invaluable.
“It is great to be able to pick the same side, but the challenge is for us to raise our standards even further to meet the next challenge.
“We are looking forward to playing at Newlands again having put the hard work in during the week,” he said.
