Stormers all set for tour

DHL Stormers coach Allister Coetzee and captain Jean de Villiers looked 2 very relieved figures at Saturdays post match press conference, the Stormers had managed to see off the challenge from a Sharks side they had lost 2 in the second round of the competition and who looked to be building up some momentum while the Stormers had only a 2 from 6 win return going into the match.

Coetzee was well aware of the amount of pressure he and his charges were under was pleased by the attitude displayed by the team, especially the youngsters who had to front up at Newlands with 42 000 fans desperate to have their team win. Coetzee had to use a large number of reserve players in Saturdays game, Michael Rhodes started at blindside flank while rookies Gerbrand Grobelaar, Gary van Aswegen and Martin Bezuidenhout got to stretch their legs, the coach pointed out that he was especially pleased with the reserve hooker as he had earned respect in the dressing room after not only performing well in the set piece but by showing great heart as well as a good bit of gas to chase a kick downfield that would have certainly been a Sharks try had he not made the effort.

The Stormers have a bye this weekend before heading onto their Australasion tour which will see them taking on the Hurricanes, Blues, Waratahs and ending off with a fixture against the Rebels , a schedule that is a sight more favourable than what the Cape side has had to endure up to now. In what is also completely unusual news out of Newlands the Stormers now also have a raft of players returning from injury, Bryan Habana, Rhynhardt Elstadt ,Scarra Ntubeni and Gerhard van den Heever have all been cleared by the medical team while Deon Fourie who left the field with concussion will be ready to start the first tour game.

The Stormers tour down under: Friday 26 April – Hurricanes 9:35am; Friday 3 May – Blues 9:35am; Saturday 11 May – Waratahs 11:40am and Friday 17 May 11:40 am
