    Stormers have 4 outstanding locks to call on. What a pleasure. Decent front row resources too. Nothing wrong with the back-rowers either. Just the halfback cupboard a little lean. That’s the BIG weakness in this years squad.

  • 163

    Wow, awesome

  • 164

    Stormers running maul try… Scarra Ntubeni!

    Geluk stommers. Goeie game. Game het twee plekke verander, toe malherbe opkom/henkus van wyk opkom en toe piet pap in sy hande van zyl opkom.

    Heard Ashwin also refer to it as a running maul try….heard it here first.
    Running of the Bulls

    STOOOOOOORRMEEEEEEERRS….Now that’s a proper hammering…BP aswell… Now who needs Eddie Jones is what I’d like to know!!!

    Stormers:Game came alive in the 2nd half,must be that gray-hair Robbie told young Robbie to open things up and not do those hapless kicking,and wow what he a game then had and certainly proved his critics wrong bigtime.

    The quick re-cycle thingy yielded points.Subs gave us advantage aswell i.e. scrums…Nice run for Zas,thought a 70 metre try was on the cards…RD amazing stuff,poor coat-hanger there by Grant Hattingh on you,..nevertheless didn’t do damage…Eben and PSDT is combo ruthless,would be too painful to try and stop them…

    Bulls…You got matadored…and as Nama would say “HOW THE HELL DID SOME OF THEM EVER BECOME BOKS”…Kriel,Arno Botha,Rudy…I think he answered that a while back and today it was clear as mud…”klomp” Vodacom quality from them that was…

  • 177

    *what a game he had…

  • 178

    @ provincefan:
    “Nice run for Zas,thought a 70 metre try was on the cards…”

    Told my mate, that I was watching the game with, that Zas would’ve out sprinted the cover defence if the ball was passed earlier to him. Opportunity missed.

    Nyakane had Koch’s number. Not sure what went wrong there because Koch was great last year. Hope it’s just a once off.

    The combination of Carr, Notsche and Schalla worked well but there is still a lot of room for improvement. Kolisi showed that he is still hungry AND better than Notsche and this stage.

    JDJ can be a revelation at 12 this year. Still some communication problems between the centres, I believe, but it will get better as the season progress.

    On the Bulls side… their front row was good…other than that, they have nothing. I hope that all the Jan Serfontein and Kriel fans will now realize how crap they both are. Add Pollard, and they must have the kakkest inside back line ever, despite the fact that those three are/were all 1st choice Boks for a certain former Bok coach.

    May their nightmare continue for the next 15 weeks.

    Well done, Robbie Fleck on your 1st win as head coach. Prove all those doubters wrong. 100% behind you, BRU.

    Hi Nama
    Agree Zas looks exciting.
    JDJ was the best midfielder on the paddock. By a country mile.
    Young Du Preez had a very decent game I thought.
    Cheslin always looked dangerous.
    Nice try by Scarra. Gotta love this boy.
    Koch was indeed owned by Big Trevor although the Stormpies returned the favor in the second half once our new captain (half) entered the fray. Eben and PSD were good together too. Hell I pity the opposition. All of them.
    I did think the Bulls played very well in the first half. Very even going into the break. Flekkie must have passed the pipe around instead of oranges at the break because Stormers came out smoking in the second.
    Great win.

    Wonder waar is Ben-die-Bul….of dalk verander hy sy nic na Ben-ek-was-voorheen-n-bul-tot-ek-die-lig-gesien-het-en-n-Stormer-trui-gaan-koop-het

  • 181

    This was the best performance of Robert du Preez’s career imo… if he can perform consistently at this level the Stormers’ flyhalf problems might be over.

    The next thing they must do is to get Brendon Thompson on the bench… together with Zas, Schikerling, Justin Phillips , Daniel du Plessis and flanker Jacques Vermeulen they are the future of Stormers rugby and they all should get game time at some stage during this season.

    If Etsebeth and du Toit can stay fit they are going to dominate this tournament… in fact, they are probably the only 2 real world class South African players in super rugbyat the moment.

    Ben is waarskynlik besig om die game oor en oor te kyk of hy nie dalk iewers iets kan sien waar die skeidsregter die bulle benadeel het nie… of miskien die vlagman.. of die tv ref….. ek is seker hy sal een of ander tyd iets kan vind.

  • 183

    Ek vind dit eienaardig dat mense nou glo dat na die swak game moes paige nooit n bok geword het nie en dat hy dit nie verdien het nie (hy het n baie kak deal van meyer ontvang), met daai selfde standaarde na gister se game moes koch ook nooit n bok gewees het nie… Belaglik man.

    De jong was goed en verseker die beste senter op die veld. Maar ook waneer hy die bal vat, sit hy hom elke keer net onder die arm en hardloop vorentoe na die naaste ou (hoeveel bal het kotze gekry?)…. Dit is redelike lae standaarde wat ons vir onsself stel as ons teen die kiwis wil kompeteer in “hardloop rugby”.

    Die game was gewen en verloor by die voorspelers waar die bulle in die tweede helfte nie n lynstaan of skrum kon wen nie, en teen die tyd wat die ouens dalk iets kry was hulle “shell shocked”.

    Ek dink ook die stormers losvoorspelers sal hul game moet lig as hul die jaar wil kompeteer, maar die vaste vyf sal weer maklik die suid afrikaanse konferensie algeheel verseker.

    Dit gaan maar n lang seison wees

  • 184

    Ek kan nie meer saam stem nie.

    Ek is bly die Stormers het gewen, maar dat hulle goeie rugby gespeel het is nie waar nie.

    So bly Vermaak is terug. Ek het al nagmerries oor Groom se diens.

    Schalk probeer ‘n moderne fetcher wees maar heelaas. De Jong maak meer meters wanneer hy ‘n opponent tref.

    Hoop Fleck bou op hierdie oorwinning en maak die nodige verstellings.

    Die Bulle begin altyd met ‘n verloor en speel die beste rugby aan die einde van die seisoen. Daar is baie talent in die span.

  • 185

    Ek stem saam veral Schalk was teleurstellend in n ongebalanseerde lostrio. Notshe het ook nog baie om te leer as n flank terwyl Carr ook nog nie naby sy vorm van 2 seisoene gelede is nie. Dinge behoort beter te lyk sodra Elstadt terug is om meer ” grunt” te verskaf andersins sal hulle moet dink om Jacques Vermeulen n kans te gee.

    Paige was nie so sleg nie en sy ” kicking game” was heel akkuraat en Leyts het goed gedoen om daarmee te deal. Die reserwe skrumskakel van die Bulle was baie swak.
