The Stormers take on the Brumbies this weekend in Super Rugby, looking to extend their sequence of not having lost to the Australian side since 2010, though having lost their last two matches, to sit second from bottom of the table, which appears an unlikely scenario.

The Brumbies themselves secured a win last weekend against their rival Australian franchise, the Waratahs, which sees them head the Australian Conference, and they will look to consolidate that position, with an eleventh win against their visitors in 16 matches played between the two sides, since 1998, including six wins from the seven contests in Canberra, the venue for this weekend’s match.

Last week, the Stormers were beaten in Hamilton by the Chiefs, and never looked likely to unseat the home side, which was a disappointing performance after they had run the Crusaders so close the week before, in what was undoubtedly their best performance of the season.

The Stormers make five changes to their side from last week. Gio Aplon moves to fullback and Sailosi Tagicakibau makes his first ever start for the Stormers on the wing. Peter Grant is drafted in to the No.10 shirt in place of Demetri Catrakilis. Frans Malherbe has overcome a toe injury, and replaces Brok Harris at tight head, with Harris dropping to the bench.
