Boeta back for Ulster

Dylan Richardson has been promoted to start after a lively show off the bench against the Lions. Likewise Vincent Tshituka moves from covering at lock to starting at 7. Boeta Chamberlain makes a welcome return to full back in place of the injured Aphelele Fassi. Emile van Heerden will provide cover at lock with Lionel Cronje joining the bench due to Neil Powell going with a 5-3 split this week.

Mchunu and Sadie starts against the Stormers

The Sharks will have none of their Boks (Ox Nche was particularly industrious in Scotland) available for the home game against the Stormers. That means Ntuthuko Mchunu and Carl├╝ Sadie will start in the front row with Dian Bleuler and Hanro Jacobs on the bench. Likewise Cam Wright (who had a very good game except for the decision to box kick with 25 seconds left on the clock) will start at 9 with Bradley Davids on the bench.
