Competition for the knockout stages of the URC is heating up, with South African side DHL Stormers aiming for a home quarter final in their first season of the competition. They will hope to take a step closer against reigning champions Leinster, who may have one eye on the Champions Cup. Top of the table with two games remaining, it’s likely that Leo Cullen’s side will be at home for the final should they reach it.
In second place is their opponents this weekend, the Stormers. They raised eyebrows this weekend with an emphatic victory over Glasgow. At home against any side, they will back themselves, and especially this weekend against Leinster in what should be a free flowing contest.
Here is all the information you need to watch The Stormers v Leinster
When is Stormers vs Leinster?
The game takes place in the Newlands Rugby Stadium this Saturday, with kick-off at 5.15 P.M

Arguably the two best attacking sides in the URC, expect plenty a high scoring game this weekend. The Stormers are on a six-game winning streak, and a win this weekend could put them into contention for top spot heading into the final round of games. No side will look forward to playing them at home, with their attacking rugby and difficult conditions making it difficult for any side to visit.
Leinster just fell short to South African opposition at the weekend, as a youthful side came away with a losing bonus point to the Sharks.
Captained by South African prop Steven Kitshoff, the Stormers are at full strength with an exciting back line, containing the entertaining Damian Willemse.
Warrick Gelant, Deon Fourie and JJ Kotze come into the starting line-up for the table-topping clash against @leinsterrugby at DHL Stadium on Saturday.

Leinster's main focus is on next week's Champions Cup clash with Leicester, which is reflected in their starting XV. Interestingly, Ciarán Frawley will start at fly-half, with Harry Byrne on the bench.
