Cape Town - Janneman Stander, brother of Irish flank CJ, will lead the SWD Eagles in their pre-season friendly match against the Stormers in George on Saturday.

The 23-year-old, who like his older brother is also a loose forward, has represented SWD’s senior team since 2014.

His more famous sibling, the 26-year-old CJ, played 10 Tests for Ireland last year.

The former Bulls loosie left South Africa in 2012 to join the Munster club.

Saturday’s clash at Outeniqua Park is scheduled for 16:00.

The Stormers will announce their team later on Thursday.
