Jacques Nienaber has selected Damian Willemse at 15 with Willie le Roux covering flyhalf and fullback from the bench. Elton Jantjies will run the show from flyhalf.
Stormers fans will be upset that Elrigh Louw has been selected instead of Evan Roos, but I assume the thinking is that Louw will be better cover for 7 with Kwagga for 6 and 8. The pressure will be on Jasper Wiese to show that he is the man to take over from Thor.
I am not convinced about Willemse at 15 (never really looked comfortable there when the Boks used him there) – he seems to be much better suited at inside centre.
Hopefully Am, Mapimpi and Kolisi can rediscover their usual spark for the Boks because they were mostly pretty average for the Sharks in the URC.
