Juarno Augustus set for Super Rugby debut

World Rugby U20 Championship Player of the Tournament Juarno Augustus has been named in the Stormers starting line up to face the Sunwolves this weekend.

Augustus was the standout player at the 2017 U20 World Championship as South Africa went on to claim 3rd place in the tournament.

Augustus comes into the starting lineup in place of Rynhardt Elstadt who is serving a suspension. 

Stormers captain Siya Kolisi and vice-captain Eben Etzebeth return to the side after they were rested in the match vs the Cheetahs, while Damian de Allende and  EW Viljoen will form a new centre combination for the side.

Dillyn Leyds will start at fullback in place of the injured SP Marais, with Seabelo Senatla starting on the wing and the experienced Bjorn Basson on the replacements bench.
