Fleck reveals Stormers team to face Chiefs
TEAM ANNOUNCEMENT: Stormers head coach Robbie Fleck named an unchanged matchday squad for the Super Rugby clash against the Chiefs at Newlands on Saturday.
The team that did duty in the 29-17 victory against the Bulls last week has been retained to face the New Zealand side.

Fleck said that continuity at this stage of the season is invaluable.
