Ross Haylett-Petty and Ian Prior will return after starring for the Spirit last season, Marcel Brache will pull on the black and gold for the first time since 2014 while Wallaby Ben McCalman will make his NRC debut at No 8.
“I think it will be good to have those guys in the team in terms of giving confidence to the other guys around them,” said Spirit coach Dwayne Nestor.
“To have a Wallaby like Ben McCalman in at No 8 is great, Ross Haylett-Petty coming back in adds to our lineout, Ian Prior’s leadership and work around the field is exceptional and Marcel Brache adds more class to our backline.
“It’s a stupid cliche but winning is a habit and so is losing.
“When you are going from win to loss it puts you on a real rollercoaster ride, so we need to make sure we are consistent and can put wins together back-to-back because it builds so much confidence.”
