    there have been only 4 standout Stormers this afternoon. The front row and De Allende. The rest have been average, poor our simply outplayed by their opposite number.

  • 152

    Stormers player played in the air, penalty, they kick it out

  • 153

    that touch finder :shock:

  • 154

    Another Stormers penalty on their own 10m line, The Greek kicks it out on the Chiefs 22

  • 155

    Hier begin die Stormers se kukkas…bye bye Newlands….ons gaan nou toer en kry ons verder op ons moer…..

  • 156

    that last tackle about summed up the game.

    going to be a very long year for the Saffa sides… except against the blues.

    Well deserved win at the end by the Chiefs.
    Stormers started very well and showed why they are at the top end of the log, so I’m not going to be hard on them, they showed some class as well, especially the scrums and when the backline worked

  • 159

    Well done Chiefs, you grew stronger, whilst the Stormers faded!

    Only 1 unbeated side left, the Canes!

  • 160

    Not a great 2nd half from the Stormers

  • 161

    @ Pietman:
    hoe se almal altyd, “dit was n wake up call”

  • 162

    De Allende was only good in the 1st 25 minutes, thereafter he was average to poor.

    As die Lions na n 0/3 begin hulle 1ste wedstryd op toer kon wen, dan sien ek geen rede hoekom die Stormers nie ook op toer kan wen nie.
    Hierdie Chiefs gaan die jaar seker die beker wen, so nie al die ander spanne is in hulle klas nie

  • 164

    That second half was like a repeat of last week… only the stormers were on the other side this time.

    If the sharks rest, Coetzee, Lambie and PSDT then it can end very badle at Kings Landing

    @ nortie:
    Ek hoop vir julle part, hulle kom nie teen vandag se highlanders te staan nie… maar die is net n obstacle, Stormers behoort darem nogsteeds die conference cup te wen.

  • 166

    ten minste

    @ Pietman: Ja Piet. Very heart-wrenching to watch. But all credit to a fine Chiefs side. Massive talent which we unfortunately cannot match.

    Nie noodwendig nie, baie water moet nog in die see loop.
    Maar ek is happy met hoe hulle in die eerste 5 rondtes gegaan het

  • 172

    @ nortie:
    jip nogsteeds n baie goeie begin.

  • 173

    I agree with some. The Chiefs should win the comp. The final will likely be played between the Saders and the Chiefs. The latter have the backline to die for and feed off scraps, which doesn’t seem to bother them too much. We’ll see.

  • 174

    @ Tassies:
    So die jaar is die chiefs se jaar? :grin:

  • 175

    are you guys experiencing problems with your DSTV feed? My screen blanks out regular as clockwork and its not my signal. Because I can simply change channel and watch a crap game of soccer if I’m desperate? The Wales/Micks game is up and down like a friggin yoyo right now.

  • 176

    @ MacroBull: beslis, as hulle speel soos wat ons vanmiddag gesien het.

  • 177

    @ Tassies:
    hulle was uitstekend, maar dit is maar ook n vertoning van hoe ver ons Suid Africa spanne agter is, Die Canes, Chiefs, Brumbies, Highlanders, Waratahs is almal op n baie hoe vlak, dan gaan die crusaders ook weer terugkom.

  • 178

    Someone asked me yesterday; “is my money on the Stormers for today’s game”. My answer was; “only my heart”. Money stays in my pocket.

  • 179

    Nama probably still thinks his springbok favorites can come from behind to win this game :lol:

    @ MacroBull:
    BB’s weekend:
    Secure the win – tick the box
    Away win as well – tick the box
    Secure the bonus point – tick the box
    Move to top of log – Check

    Nama’s weekend:
    Secure the win – skop die d…
    Home win as well – skop die d…
    Secure a bonus point – Ha ha
    Stay on top of log – Sorry for you

    Lekker man, lekker

  • 181

    Only 4 teams have failed to register 4 try bonus points this year, 3 of those at the bottom of the log and the other one…well… care to take a guess?

  • 182

    The brumbies have already achieved 4 bonus points to make up for losing vs the Chiefs, while scoring 18 tries and only conceding 3.

  • 183

    This time last year all the teams have won at least one home game, this year 5 teams have failed to register a home win so far: Blues, Lions, Force, Rebels and Waratahs.

  • 184

    When is Elstadt coming back? The Stormers needs a “fetcher”, cant even remember seeing Carr yesterday?

  • 185

    Sh1t. I found the vast majority of this weekend’s Rugby utterly boring, with Wales / Ireland the notable exception.

    @ robzim:
    Only see now that Schreuder is the starting SH. Never bet on Stormers when he starts. Too bad I already picked them for a win on bru. Will probably be the game we lose at Newlands this year.

    Fukkit AC! It could’ve been 5/5.

    As you can see, I was expecting the loss. My prediction for the season still holds.

    4/4 in the derbies at Newlands…on course.
    2/4 in the derbies away from home….achieved already
    3/4 at Newlands against the Australasian teams…on course
    2/4 on tour…still to be seen.

  • 187

    I wonder who some people will blame for the loss…Gert Smal or Allister Coetzee? Pondering Devilish Thinking

  • 188

    187 @ Nama:
    It was all Cheslin Kolbe, Dillyn Leyds, Juan de Jongh, Damian de Allende, Kurt Coleman, Nic Groom, Louis Schreuder, Alistair Vermaak, Frans Malherbe & the rest of the team’s fault!

    Oh and a bit of Allister Coetzee too… hehehe

    No serious, the players listed played kak (except Damian de Allende who was exceptionally good in the 1st 25 minutes, before turning into a lump of kak called Damian die Ellendige).

    I think “Vincent van Koch” made a massive contribution, so too Scarra & Kitskos.. plus the locks & loosies… UNTIL the front row subs came on… and for the subs one can only blame Allister Coetzee!
    I think Kobus van Wyk was bloody good too.

    It was a great game though, and the Chiefs are class!

  • 189

    @ grootblousmile:
    I didn’t see the match as I was at a rugby tournament in Port Nolloth but I see that many people are upset with AC replacing the props too early.

  • 190

    189 @ Nama:
    The initial front row as a whole monstered the Chiefs in the scrums… till Jamie Mackintosh eventually came on as a replacement and stabilized things somewhat for the Chiefs in the scrums. Vincent Koch was massive, so too the Ginger Ninja, Kitskos!

    When Alistair Vermaak & Frans Malherbe came on, it turned to the opposite, with the Chiefs dominating the scrums.

    Cheslin Kolbe slipped up BIG TIME on defence during the Chiefs 1st try, Kurt Coleman missed some sitters at goal, Juan de Jongh ran straight into people the whole afternoon and could not get his offloads going, Schreuder was so-so till he copped an accidental knee on the head and was off concussed and then Nic Groom farked up big time, time after time.

    Damian de Allende started like a house on fire, then faded after 25 minutes and just became worse and worse as the game wore on.

  • 191

    @ grootblousmile:
    That does not sound good. One would’ve hoped for a much better performance by the players since they are going to rest next weekend before they go on tour. But I guess it is what it is. Not a train smash, after all it is the Chiefs that they lost against. But they will have to work hard in the next 5 weeks.

    Koch is really stepping up. I hope Smal will sign him permanently.

  • 192

    191 @ Nama:
    Sonny Bill Williams also was monstered a number of times, the first biggie by Vincent Koch himself… and Sonny Bill had to go to the Concussion Bin because of the perfectly legal tackle. When he came back he was never the same again, he copped some more big hits and eventually knocked a few balls as he was so nervous in receiving passes.

    If one nails him well, you take his threat out of the game completely. The rest of the Chiefs backline was fantastic though!

  • 193

    192 @ grootblousmile:
    35 The number of offloads by Sonny Bill Williams (13), Sam Cane (8), Damian McKenzie and Bryce Heem (7); with all four being in the top ten of this category – with SBW ranked top of the pops.

  • 194

    More worrying here is the missed tackles…

    43 The combined clean breaks (15) and defenders beaten (28) the Chiefs recorded against the Stormers from 108 carries, the best such conversion rate from any team so far in 2015.

    9 Number of tackles missed by Chiefs in 99 attempted, compared to 28 missed from 86 to the Stormers.

    11 Number of breaks made by Chiefs wing James Lowe, three more than any other player.

    I was lucky enough to attend the Chiefs practice last week at a local club and the differences between they way they practice and the way our teams practice are astounding.

    Furthermore what an amazing bunch of guys none of the arrogance you often see with local big names. It’s easy to see why the are passing the Crusaders on the local popularity stakes.

  • 196

    Rennie and Smith… one of the great coaching partnerships….To come up with a rookie back three playing like that is a job well done

  • 197

    @ Te Rangatira:

    What a great bunch of guys.

  • 198

    @ gunther:
    Hi Gunther…The Chiefs look like they made an impression on you. I’ve never seen them train or been around them at anytime but what I’ve seen on tv they come across as a well balanced bunch of blokes. Their team spirit comes across when they play.

  • 199

    @ Te Rangatira:

    I enjoyed their love for the game their attitude towards each other as well as the local club side that trained with them.

    I was also massively impressed by the way they trained we have a LOT of catching up to do in that department.
