Stormers' wunderkind returns for Euro tour

SQUAD ANNOUNCEMENT: A 27-man Stormers squad will leave Cape Town on Tuesday for a crucial two-match United Rugby Championship tour.


The Stormers are currently in fifth position on the overall standings and will take on Dragons at Rodney Parade in Newport on Friday, before facing Connacht at the Sportsground in Galway on the following Saturday.

Backs Angelo Davids and Sacha Feinberg-Mngomezulu and forwards Sti Sithole and Kwenzo Blose all make their return from injury to take their places in the touring group.
