Januarie starts again for Stormers

Ricky Januarie will again start for the Stormers in their Super 14 match against the Brumbies, with Dewaldt Duvenage on the bench.

Januarie impressed in the victory over the NSW Waratahs last weekend and was retained at No.9 by coach Allister Coetzee on Tuesday.

Duvenage was considered the Cape Town team's top scrumhalf at the beginning of the season but Januarie's impressive display at Newlands, which culminated in him setting up Bryan Habana's second try, forced Coetzee to keep faith with the Springbok.

Lock Andries Bekker was named captain in place of Schalk Burger who will miss Friday's match with injury.

Burger was carried off against the Waratahs with a hamstring problem and Bekker took over as captain and won the man of the match award in the Stormers' 27-6 win.

Pieter Louw replaced Burger at No.6 after going on in place of the Springboks flanker.

Pieter Myburgh was brought into the reserves.

The Stormers have won their first two games. The Brumbies lost 50-32 to defending champions the Bulls in Pretoria last weekend.

Stormers: Joe Pietersen, Gio Aplon, Jaques Fourie, Juan de Jongh, Bryan Habana, Peter Grant, Ricky Januarie; JC Kritzinger, Tiaan Liebenberg, Brok Harris, De Kock Steenkamp, Andries Bekker (capt), Pieter Louw, Francois Louw, Duane Vermeulen. Res: Deon Fourie, Eusebio Guinazu, Anton van Zyl, Pieter Myburgh, Dewaldt Duvenage, Lionel Cronje, Sireli Naqelevuki.
