Schalk Burger back as Stormers Skipper (team sheet)

In the absence of regular skipper Jean de Villiers, veteran Bok Burger will lead the side against the Bulls this weekend.

Injuries to both centres means Samoan import  Sailosi Tagicakibau moves into the 13 jersey, shifting regular outside centre Juan de Jongh to number 12.

Springbok  forwards Tiaan Liebenberg and Siya Kolisi will play from the bench, and an injury Kobus van Wyk means lighting-quick sevens star Seabelo Senatla could make his Super Rugby début, as he is included in the reserves.

Stormers – 15 Jaco Taute, 14 Gio Aplon, 13 Sailosi Tagicakibau, 12 Juan de Jongh, 11 Cheslin Kolbe, 10 Kurt Coleman, 9 Nic Groom, 8 Duane Vermeulen, 7 Schalk Burger (c), 6 Nizaam Carr, 5 Ruan Botha, 4 Michael Rhodes, 3 Pat Cilliers, 2 Deon Fourie, 1 Alistair Vermaak.
Subs: 16 Tiaan Liebenberg, 17 Sti Sithole, 18 Martin Dreyer, 19 Manuel Carizza, 20 Siya Kolisi, 21 Louis Schreuder, 22 Peter Grant, 23 Seabelo Senatla.
