Stormers skipper Jean de Villiers returns with Schalk Burger for Saturday's Super Rugby clash with the Cheetahs in Cape Town.
Burger missed last weekend's 24-8 win over the Force, whilst de Villiers returns after a two-week lay-off.
The return of de Villiers sees Springbok training squad member Damian de Allende shift back onto the right wing, whilst Burger takes over the number seven jersey from Siya Kolisi.
In other changes to the Stormers line-up, Kurt Coleman returns as the starting fly-half and loosehead prop Alistair Vermaak - after two impressive performances from the bench - will make his first Super Rugby start.
Prop Brok Harris, fly-half Peter Grant, wing Kobus van Wyk and back-row Kolisi all drop down to the replacements bench this week, where they are joined by prop Oli Kebble, who is back after sitting out with concussion for two weeks.
The Stormers and Cheetahs have met 12 times since 2006, with the Stormers winning eight games and the Cheetahs emerging victorious on four occasions.
"We learned a few lessons from our defeat last time out. On that occasion we gave the Cheetahs too much space when they ran the ball," said head coach Allister Coetzee.
"We allowed them to get into that space, which you cannot do against them as they have players like Willie le Roux who will punish you. We must close up that space better than we did in Bloemfontein."
For the Cheetahs, former Springbok forward Hilton Lobberts has been named on the bench for Saturday's clash at Newlands.
The two-Test former Stormers player replaces lock Waltie Vermeulen in one of two changes made to the bench, the other being scrum-half Tian Meyer, who comes in for Renier Botha.
Coach Naka Drotské has made no changes to the starting XV which beat the Brumbies 27-21 in Bloemfontein last week.
Riaan Smit retains his place on the bench as Raymond Rhule is still struggling with an ankle injury.
