Fatafehi waiting in the wings

The Stormers’ Tongan import Alipate Fatafehi could be a surprise addition to the squad on tour in Australasia.

The Cape Times reports that Fatafehi is currently in New Zealand although he is not an official member of the 24-man squad.

Fatafehi’s involvement in the Stormers’ training sessions has not been confirmed but the Stormers may turn to him to fill the void left by injured wings Tonderai Chavhanga and Nick Koster.

Sireli Naqelevuki is the only certainty at wing, but Fatafehi may well play a role during the five-match tour.

Stormers coach Rassie Erasmus has quite a few options on the wing but it is likely that conditions will play a major role in determining the make-up of his starting line-up.

Stormers spokesperson, Frikkie Erasmus said that it has been raining in Christchurch for the past few days. This may tempt Erasmus to continue with Willem de Waal at flyhalf with Peter Grant coming in on his outside, to further boost the Stormers’ kicking game against a resurgent Crusaders outfit.

Grant’s inclusion could see Gcobani Bobo shifting to the wing in Koster’s place. However, Conrad Jantjes is also available after being sidelined for the past few weeks, while Fatafehi’s inclusion remains an option.
