In the forwards, Willie Wepener will start in place of the injured Robbie Coetzee.
Meanwhile, on the replacements bench, Mark Pretorius comes up into the squad after performing well in the junior ranks and will provide cover at hooker.
Another promising junior figure, Stephan de Wit, will also look to earn his first Vodacom Super Rugby cap off the wood. This after Warwick Tecklenburg failed a concussion test this week.
Additionally, utility back Lionel Mapoe has recovered from his hamstring strain and will also provide cover on the bench.
