Rugby | Sunwolves starting XV unchanged for Cheetahs

Cape Town – Sunwolves coach Mark Hammett has shown confidence in his side by naming an unchanged starting XV to face the Cheetahs in Singapore.

The Japanese side lost 26-13 to the Lions in their first Super Rugby match in Tokyo two weeks ago.

Hammett has kept the faith with experienced hooker Shota Horie leading the side, while replacements Takuma Asahara and Mifiposeti Paeaare the only changes to the match-day squad.

These alterations to the bench mean that Koki Yamamoto and Hajime Yamashata are dropped from the match-day 23.

Saturday’s clash at Singapore National Stadium is scheduled for 12:55 (SA time).
