Taute to start for Stormers

Planet Rugby

CAPE TOWN - Full-back Jaco Taute returns to the Stormers' starting XV in tomorrow's clash with the Hurricanes in Cape Town.

Taute replaces Gio Aplon in the number 15 jersey with Aplon shifting across to the wing.

Damian de Allende will move from the wing to partner skipper Jean de Villiers in the Stormers midfield, the latter shifting to the number 13 jersey and Michael van der Spuy dropping out of the matchday squad altogether.

The rest of the team is unchanged from the line-up that went down 10-34 to the Lions last Saturday, as head coach Allister Coetzee looks to maintain consistency in selection.

"I've learnt from this competition that you take nothing for granted, it is never easy," said Coetzee.

"You have to take your opportunities.

"The Hurricanes have four All Blacks in the back-line, that is where their strength is.

"We have to make sure we come up with a good performance. The Hurricanes, over the years, have never been scared to run the ball."

Stormers: 15 Jaco Taute, 14 Kobus van Wyk, 13 Jean de Villiers (c), 12 Damian de Allende, 11 Gio Aplon, 10 Demetri Catrakilis, 9 Louis Schreuder, 8 Duane Vermeulen, 7 Schalk Burger, 6 Siya Kolisi, 5 Manuel Carizza, 4 Rynhardt Elstadt, 3 Frans Malherbe, 2 Scarra Ntubeni, 1 Steven Kitshoff.

Reserves: 16 Deon Fourie, 17 Oliver Kebble, 18 Pat Cilliers, 19 Michael Rhodes, 20 Nizaam Carr, 21 Nic Groom, 22 Kurt Coleman, 23 Ryno Eksteen.
