There are two injury-enforced changes to the starting XV that did duty against the Sharks in Durban last weekend.

In the pack, Nizaam Carr comes in to take over the No.6 jersey from fellow Bok loose forward Marco van Staden.

The other change is in the backline where Canan Moodie was also ruled out because of injury. His place on the wing is taken by Sebastian de Klerk.

With Carr and De Klerk promoted to the starting line-up, Jannes Kirsten and Sergeal Petersen have been included on the bench this week.
