Rosko Specman starts for Stormers in crunch match against the Bulls


Rosco Specman will start on the wing on one of the four changes to the Stormers starting line-up for their PRO14 Rainbow Cup SA clash with the Bulls on Friday.

There are two changes to the backline and two to the forward pack for the North-South encounter, which is set to kick off at 19:00 at Loftus Versfeld in Pretoria.

Specman, who is on loan with the Stormers from the Free State Cheetahs, comes into the starting line-up, while the other change to the backline sees Tim Swiel make his first start of the campaign at flyhalf.

David Meihuizen comes in at lock for JD Schickerling, who picked up an ankle injury in training this week, while Neethling Fouche starts at tighthead prop.

Stormers Head Coach John Dobson said that his team will need to execute their skills as accurately as possible to get the result they need against the Bulls and keep their tournament hopes alive.

“We know that it will take a clinical performance to get the win on Friday and we are up for the challenge.

“We want to push ourselves to deliver our best rugby for the full 80 minutes as we know that we are an even better team than we have shown in this competition,” he said.
