Etzebeth to start, Cobus Wiese moves to flank in Pieter-Steph's place

Stand-out Stormers lock Cobus Wiese against the Bulls has been moved to flank for the Stormers match against the Jaguares in Buenos Aires on Saturday evening.

Wiese’s move follows the selection of Eben Etzebeth in the starting Stormers side as lock where he will pack down with JD Schickerling as his lock partner.

Wiese takes the place of injured Springbok flank Pieter-Steph  du Toit while the absence of Bok captain Siya Kolisi due to Springbok protocols is covered by the inclusion of Jaco Coetzee, who has recovered from his injury sustained on the Australasian tour.

Flyhalf Joshua Stander gets a rest and isn’t in the matchday 23, while Bok centre Damian de Allende is also on the bench.

In the front-row the Stormers have opted for three Springboks, with Wilco Louw and Bongi Mbonambi joining stand-in captain Steven Kitshoff.

Springbok loose-forward Sikhumbozo Notshe is also back in the match-23 after a lengthy lay-off
