Schalk Burger to make come back for Stormers

South Africa and Stormers flanker Schalk Burger will make his comeback from a severe neck injury when he plays for the Stormers in a Super 14 warm-up game this weekend.

Stormers coach Kobus van der Merwe has named Burger in his team to face the Bulls at Loftus Versfeld in Pretoria on Saturday.

Burger, the 2004 world player of the year, needed a neck operation after being injured in the second Test against Scotland in June.

While he was out injured, the Springboks lost their next five matches and only won five games the entire year.
