After a disappointing 2014 Super Rugby season, when they finished in eleventh place on the overall table, The Stormers started the new season with an impressive win away from home against the Blues at Loftus Versfeld Stadium. They will now look to build on that victory when they host the Blues from Auckland at Newlands on Saturday.

The Blues started their campaign with defeat in Albany to the Chiefs, who were Champions in 2012 and 2013, before losing their title, when defeated by the Brumbies in the play-off qualifier last season. The two sides have met 16 times previously in Super Rugby, with the Blues having a slight edge, having won nine of the matches, against the seven victories of the Stormers. Three of the Stormers wins coming in the seven games played at Newlands.

Having opened the season in South Africa, the Stormers have had an easier week's preparation for Saturday's fixture, while the Blues have the disadvantage of having to fly from New Zealand, and they were unable to name a definitive starting XV, as they await the outcome of the travel factor. The Stormers meanwhile were able to name a side that shows just one change from last weekend's win in Pretoria, with Jurie Van Vurren replacing the injured Jean Kleyn.
