Springboks Eben Etzebeth, Bryan Habana and Elton Jantjies have recovered from injury to take their place in the Stormers touring squad for their Australasian tour.

Coach Allister Coetzee named 15 forwards and 11 backs, with Jean de Villiers leading a squad that features Etzebeth, Habana and Jantjies as well as the fit-again Scarra Ntubeni and Rynhardt Elstadt.

"We've had a good week off and we're looking forward to heading off on tour," said Coetzee ahead of the clashes against the Hurricanes, Blues, Waratahs and Rebels.

"Traditionally, we've always performed well in New Zealand and Australia and we're naturally hoping for positive results over the next four weeks.

"It's a big boost having Scarra, Eben, Rynhardt, Elton and Bryan back from injury, but, like I've said throughout the season, it's a squad effort and we will rely on all 26 players on tour," he added.

Stormers squad: Gio Aplon, Andries Bekker, Martin Bezuidenhout, Nizaam Carr, Pat Cilliers, Damian de Allende, Juan de Jongh, Jean de Villiers (captain), Dewaldt Duvenage, Rynhardt Elstadt, Eben Etzebeth, Deon Fourie, Nic Groom, Bryan Habana, Brok Harris, Elton Jantjies, Steven Kitshoff, Siya Kolisi, Frans Malherbe, Scarra Ntubeni, Joe Pietersen, Michael Rhodes, Louis Schreuder, De Kock Steenkamp, Gary van Aswegen, Duane Vermuelen (vice-captain).
