Injuries and absent captain force Stormers' hand
INJURY UPDATE: Under fire Stormers coach Robbie Fleck sent an SOS to Cape Town for reinforcements, as he looks to salvage something from a winless Australasian tour.
Centre Dan Kriel and hooker Chad Solomon have flown out to join the Stormers in Australia, ahead of their final tour match against the Rebels on Friday.
Outside back Sarel Marais and lock Chris van Zyl have both flown back to Cape Town.
The duo picked up injuries in the Stormers’ 12-24 loss to the Reds in Brisbane last Friday.
Marais has a hip flexor injury, while Van Zyl has been ruled out for at least six weeks due to a back injury.
Captain Siya Kolisi has also returned home, as he is being rested this weekend.
