Cape Town - The Sunwolves have made nine changes to the side mauled by the Lions to face the Stormers at Newlands on Saturday.

In the back-line, Riaan Viljoen replaces Yasutaka Sasakura at fullback while Kotaro Matsushima comes in on the right wing for Takaaki Nakazuru and Yu Tamura slots in to the flyhalf position in place of Jumpei Ogura who drops to the bench.

Up front, Shuhei Matsuhasi and Malgene Ilaua are included in the flank positions at the expense of Shokei Kin and Yoshitaka Tokunaga.

The injured Sam Wykes misses out to be replaced by Uwe Helu at lock. It's a brand new front-row with Takuma Asahara (tighthead prop), Takeshi Hino (hooker) and Koki Yamamoto (loosehead prop) coming in for Yasuo Yamaji, Atsushi Sakate and Masataka Mikami.
