Western Force travel to Cape Town on Saturday knowing a bonus-point victory over the struggling Stormers will see them move second in the Super Rugby standings.
Michael Foley's Force have won seven of their last eight outings to move up to fifth in the table, just five points shy of league leaders Sharks.
Meanwhile, the Stormers continue to prop up the competition with just three wins in 11 matches, although two of those wins have come in the last four rounds.
Saturday's showdown at Newlands sees Stormers back Peter Grant become only the third centurion for the club, as he moves from inside centre to fill the vacant fly-half berth.
Grant's switch is one of five changes made by Allister Coetzee following their 28-12 reverse to the Bulls last weekend.
In a second positional change to the backline, Damian de Allende move off the wings to inside centre, with Kobus van Wyk returning to the right flank following an injury lay-off.
Lock Michael Rhodes also make his comeback, while Deon Fourie gets the nod at hooker in place of the injured Scarra Ntubeni.
"We're happy to have Michael Rhodes and Kobus van Wyk back this week, whilst it's a special moment for Peter Grant who will wear the No.10 jersey in his 100th match for the Stormers," Coetzee told the Stormers website.
"Peter and Brok Harris - who will play his 200th match for the union - have been loyal servants and they deserve to be in the limelight this week. Hopefully we can make it a special day for both of them come Saturday."
Perth-born centre Luke Burton will make his Super Rugby debut as Western Force continue their tour of South Africa.
The 20-year-old re-joined the Force squad for their South African tour after being a part of the Australian U20s side that defeated Samoa U20s, 34-5, late last month.
Burton replaces Kyle Godwin, who has been ruled out with a knee injury, and will form a new centre pairing with Chris Tuatara-Morrison, who has been promoted to the starting line-up.
Former Stormers outside back Marcel Brache shifts from outside centre to the wing in place of Dane Haylett-Petty, who continues to struggle with a groin injury.
Brache, who played for seasons with Saturday's hosts, will link up in a Force back three with both of last weekend's try scorers, Nick Cummins and Jayden Hayward, while Ian Prior and Sias Ebersohn will continue their combination in the halves.
Stormers: 15 Taute, 14 Van Wyk, 13 De Jongh, 12 De Allende, 11 Kolbe, 10 Grant, 9 Groom, 8 Vermeulen, 7 Burger (capt), 6 Carr, 5 Botha, 4 Rhodes, 3 Cilliers, 2 Fourie, 1 Harris.
Replacements: 16 Coetzee, 17 Vermaak, 18 Dreyer, 19 Kleyn, 20 Kolisi, 21 Frylinck, 22 Coleman, 23 Van der Spuy.
