Stormers head coach Robbie Fleck has announced that Eben Etzebeth and Pieter-Steph du Toit will miss Saturday's match against the Kings.

The Bok duo are given a weekend off due to an agreement with SARU, with the Stormers also having already qualified for the play-offs.

"Both Eben and Pieter-Steph are being rested in line with Springbok resting plan‚” Fleck told reporters ahead of the fixture at Newlands.

"For us it is still about selecting the strongest side possible for this game to take momentum into the play-offs."
