The Stormers have made just the two changes for the visit of the Waratahs to Cape Town.

Flanker Jebb Sinclair is handed his first start since arriving on loan from London Irish, with the Canadian replacing the injured Nizaam Carr in the back-row. Western Province flanker Don Armand comes into the side on the bench.

In the front row Tiaan Liebenberg is handed the No.2 jersey, with Deon Fourie named among the replacements.

There will be two landmark appearances in the match with Bryan Habana playing in his 100th Super Rugby match, while Dewaldt Duvenhage makes his 50th appearance for the Stormers.

The Waratahs have made four changes for the clash following their narrow loss to the Bulls.

Dave Dennis and Sitaleki Timani added to the pack, while Bernard Foley and Brendan McKibbin have been named in the backline.

There could be a further change in the front row, with John Ulugia facing a late fitness test. Tatafu Polota-Nau is on standby to start.
