Super Rugby Debut – Stormers – 2008

Juan (Brok) Harris

HEIGHT 183 cm

WEIGHT 118 Kg

BIRTH DATE 22 February 1985 – Age 26

Super Rugby Debut – Stormers – 2007

Tighthead Prop

Brok, is the grafter in the Stormers pack. A work horse that gives you everything. An uncompromising player, who, will probably never be the hardest scrummager in the land, but by the same token, never let you down. Plays at tighthead, but will move across if needs be, as he did during the last season.

 

Jozua Francois Malherbe (Frans) Malherbe

HEIGHT 190 cm

WEIGHT 124 Kg

BIRTH DATE 22 14 March 1991 – Age 20

Super Rugby Debut – Stormers – 2011

BIRTH DATE 09 May 1988 – Age 23

Maties – FNB Varsity Cup presented by Steinhoff International – 2012, 2011, 2010

Allister Vermaak

HOOKERS:

 

Deon Andre Fourie

HEIGHT 177 cm

WEIGHT 100 Kg

BIRTH DATE 25 September 1986 – Age 25

DHL Stormers Vodacom Super Rugby – 2008

Hooker

Deon Fourie, who has explosive pace, made his Super rugby debut in 2008. Accurate at the line out, and not afraid to shirk his responsibilities on the field, he is gradually growing into a potential leader. Has been mooted by Allister Coetzee on the side of the scrum, but will probably stay at hooker, rotating with Tiaan Liebenberg for the starting spot.

 

 

Clemen Lewis

HEIGHT 173 cm

WEIGHT 95 Kg

BIRTH DATE 10 October 1983 – Age 28

Boland Cavaliers 2005

Hooker

Boland Stalwart, Lewis is an abrasive hooker, and powerful runner. Been a feature in the Cavaliers side since 2005. An honest player and hard grafter. How much game time he gets will rest upon the fitness of the other hookers, I guess.

 

 

Christiaan Rudolph (Tiaan) Liebenberg

HEIGHT 185 cm

WEIGHT 111 Kg

BIRTH DATE 18 December 1981 – Age 31

Super Rugby Debut – Cheetahs – 2006

DHL Stormers Vodacom Super Rugby – 2007

Hooker

Except for a short stint in France in 2009, Liebenberg has played for the Stormers since 2007, where he was a major cog in rejuvenating the front row when it was really struggling. Captain of Western Province 2011, he is one of the primary ball carriers for the team, with the physicality to match his opponents, is a strong scrummager, carrying the ball over the advantage line consistently. Excellent in the loose, with that permanent smile, has the ability to get right up the opponents nose. Barring injury, he share the starting spot with Fourie.

 

 

Siyabonga (Skarra) Ntubeni

HEIGHT 177 cm

WEIGHT 92 Kg

BIRTH DATE 18 February 1991 – Age 21

Super Rugby Debut – Stormers – 2011

Hooker

Represented Golden Lions at Craven week 2009, “Scarra”, as he is affectionately known, is renowned for his leadership abilities and his accuracy in the lineouts SA schools 2009. The burly 20-year-old hooker has represented Western Province and the Stormers with some success of late, and has enjoyed his time in the Cape Town-based. He played for 79 minutes from 4 matches (All subs) off the bench in last years Super Rugby tournament. Although he was dropped from the Stormers squad last year and appeared on the WP bench, he is back in the Stormers squad.

 

 

LOCKS:

Andries Bekker

HEIGHT 208 cm

WEIGHT 118 Kg

BIRTH DATE 5 December 1983 – Age 29

DHL Stormers Vodacom Super Rugby – 2005

Lock

Big and strong, lived in Matfields shadow for the past few years, the big No 5, is one of South Africas best lineout forwards, and not a man to shirk his duties on the frontline. A hard man and strong ball carrier, Bekkers lineout abilities and ball poaching second only to the retired Matfield. Consistant injuries may be the biggest problem.

 

 

Rynhardt (Rocky) Elstadt

HEIGHT 198 cm

WEIGHT 112 Kg

BIRTH DATE 20 December 1989 – Age 22

DHL Stormers Vodacom Super Rugby – 2011

Lock

Still on the injured list, Elstadt hopes to be back before the ‘Canes game. Some are still unconvinced, but Elstadt was as good an enforcer in his last year as any of the others I saw.

 

 

Eben Etzebeth

HEIGHT 203 cm

WEIGHT 117 Kg

BIRTH DATE 29 October 1991 – Age 21

Super Rugby Debut – Cheetahs – 2006

DHL Western Province – 2011

Lock

Tall, athletic lock with a high work rate, although yet to prove himself in the Stormers side, he has more than proven himself in both SA U20 competitions and in the WP squad. Probably the future of Western Cape rugby with Elstadt when Bekker bows out.

 

 

Hilton Lobberts

HEIGHT 190 cm

WEIGHT 105 Kg

BIRTH DATE 11 June 1986 – Age 25

Super Rugby Debut – Blue Bulls – 2007

Stormers – 2009

Lock

Better known as a loosie, Lobberts made his senior debut for the Bulls in 2005 and appeared in two Tests for the Springboks the following year. Western Province signed him 2009, but injuries have limited him to just 14 appearances in the blue-and-white striped jersey. A wily, street wise lock, he is a good scrummager, good lineout contestor and an enforcer, he is one of the hard men in SA rugby.

 

 

Quinn Roux

HEIGHT 196 cm

WEIGHT 117 Kg

BIRTH DATE 30 October 1990 – Age 21

DHL Stormers Vodacom Super Rugby – 2010

Lock

Originally from Pretoria Roux came down to the Western Province Institute a few years ago, and started his career from there At the age of just 20, he is a tall and athletic lock, and shaping up to be one of the games new enforcers.

 

 

Michiel De Kock (De Kock) Steenkamp

HEIGHT 197 cm

WEIGHT 108 Kg

BIRTH DATE 16 February 1987 – Age 24

DHL Stormers Vodacom Super Rugby – 2010

Lock

De Kock Steenkamp’s chance came in 2009, following the departure of Chris Jack, and the injury to Springbok Andries Bekker meant that De Kock was thrust into the Vodacom WP’s side during their Currie Cup campaign. This brought about a call up to the Stormers squad for 2010. The warm up game in Wellington saw him don the captains armband, and this coupled with the next warm ups, he will be hoping to prove himself as back up to Bekker this season.

 

 

LOOSEFORWARDS:

Donovan Armand

HEIGHT

WEIGHT

BIRTH DATE 23 September 1988– Age 23

WEIGHT 114 Kg

BIRTH DATE 13 April 1983 – Age 28

Nizaam Carr

HEIGHT 184 cm

WEIGHT 93 Kg

BIRTH DATE 4 April 1991 – Age 21

DHL Western Province – 2011

Loose Forward

One for the future, this former Bishops scholar made the SA Under-20 squad to Argentina having played for Western Province and South Africa at every level in his age group. A multi-skilled loose forward with a lot to prove, his first outing to Wellington in the Stormers colours didn’t disappoint.

 

 

Nick Fenton-Wells

HEIGHT 185 cm

WEIGHT 102 Kg

BIRTH DATE 11 August 1986 – Age 25

DHL Stormers Vodacom Super Rugby – 2010

Loose Forward

Captain of the Ikeys squad last year, Felton-Wells has made the step up to the Stormers squad for 2012. A skilful loose forward, happy on either side of the scrum, He wants to specialise at openside. A bit of a late bloomer, he nevertheless had a good season with Western Province in 2011

 

 

Yassir (Yaya) Hartzenberg

HEIGHT 194 cm

WEIGHT 109 Kg

BIRTH DATE 6 January 1989 – Age 23

DHL Western Province – 2010

Loose Forward

A product of the Western Province Youth League, Yaya moved on to play for Western Province in 2010 after playing for the Ikeys. A strong lad, He will be playing off the back of the scrum the weekend in the curtain raiser for the DHL WP Vodacom Cup Squad. A strong ball carrier, we’ll have to see what the season brings.

 

 

Reuben Benjamin Johannes

HEIGHT 183 cm

WEIGHT 96 Kg

BIRTH DATE 5 October 1990 – Age 21

DHL Western Province – 2011

Loose Forward

Will be coming off the bench at this weekends match against the Lions, Johannes scooped the best forwards player for the u21 category at the WP awards last year, he is a fierce tackling loose forward with ball stealing capabilities of note. He is athletic, agile, strong and hard working.

 

 

Rohan Kitshoff

HEIGHT 182 cm

WEIGHT 98 Kg

BIRTH DATE 13 September 1985 – Age 26

DHL Stormers Vodacom Super Rugby – 2011

Loose Forward

After a successful World Cup for Namibia, the pocket fetcher is back, this time in the Stormers colours. Having began his career, inconsistent form plus a plethora if loosies in 2006 saw Kitshof move to Griquas. He rerurned to Western Province and the Stormers in 2011

 

 

Siyamthanda (Siya) Kolisi

HEIGHT 186 cm

WEIGHT 96 Kg

BIRTH DATE 16 June 1991 – Age 20

DHL Western Province – 2011

Loose Forward

Called in as cover for Vermeulan last year, by Allister Coetzee, after having played for the SA U20 side at the Junior World Championship. Siyamthanda is physically a big man, strong ball carrier, has a sound defence, he breaks the advantage line regularly and has awesome support play. He has been touted in some corners as the next Brussouw, and is a player of the future.

 

 

Ralph Nicholas (Nick) Koster

HEIGHT 193 cm

WEIGHT 104 Kg

BIRTH DATE 22 February 1989 – Age 22

DHL Stormers Vodacom Super Rugby – 2010

Loose Forward

Once touted by Nick Mallet and Jake White to be the next big thing in South African Rugby, Koster still has a thing or two to prove. A brilliant season in 2008 Absa Currie Cup saw him get a Barbarians call up. Rassie Erasmus moved him to the wing in 2009, a move again backed by Mallet, but it is safe to say that he is back at No.8. Not as physical as Vermuelen, Koster nonetheless walked away with the award for best player at last years WP annual awards evening. Koster will start at 8 in Fridays game with Vermeulen still crock.

 

 

Daniel Johannes (Duane) Vermeulen

HEIGHT 193 cm

WEIGHT 108 Kg

BIRTH DATE 3 July 1986 – Age 25

Vodacom FS Cheetahs Super Rugby – 2007

Stormers – 2009

Loose Forward

Duane began his career at Puma’s in 2004, before moving to the Cheetahs in 2007. After a 2 year stint there, he moved to the Western Cape in 2009 and immediately slotted into the Vodacom Stormers loose trio with Schalk Burger and Francois Louw. His physical play and barn-storming running style make him a formidable obstacle for any opponent. A serious knee injury ended his season last year, and whilst still not fit, Allister Coetzee is confident he will be back for the opening rounds of the Super 15 proper.

 

 

SCRUMHALVES:

Johannes Haindly Joseph (Bolla) Conradie

HEIGHT 170 cm

WEIGHT 76 Kg

BIRTH DATE 24 February 1978 – Age 33

DHL Stormers Vodacom Super Rugby – 2002

Scrum-half

With 18 caps for South Africa, 73 for Stormers and WP alike, Bolla comes in from the cold. AC’s feeling at the end of last year said that they would be monitoring his fitness. A while since he has played for the Stormers regularly (2007 to be precise), he had a good outing with them in their first outing this year against the Cavaliers. A bit long in the tooth now, he will be the back up at best.

 

 

Dewaldt Otto Duvenage

HEIGHT 173 cm

WEIGHT 78 Kg

BIRTH DATE 22 May 1988 – Age 23

DHL Stormers Vodacom Super Rugby – 2009

Scrum-half

Still on the injured list, Duvenage will, when he makes it back, be the No.1 scrummie. One of the best in the country, he won the back line player of the year at the WP annual awards last year. Duvenage is one of the most underrated and well-rounded scrum-halves in South Africa, giving a crisp service from the base, and has very good vision and awarness. A very good tactical kicker, as well as an accomplished place kicker when called upon. At only 23, Dewald is the senior scrummy, currently on the injured list, he will take over the staring berth when he returns

 

 

Nic Groom

HEIGHT 171 cm

WEIGHT 93 Kg

BIRTH DATE 21 February 1990- Age 21

DHL Stormers Vodacom Super Rugby – 2011

Scrum-half

In 3 seasons this pocket rocket went from schoolboy to the Stormers in 2011. A youngster with with a lightening pass and accuracy out of hand, Nic is also strong in defence. He has the potential as a leader of the future, a youngster with a level head and remarkable vision. One for the future.

 

 

Louis Schreuder

HEIGHT 184 cm

WEIGHT 82 Kg

BIRTH DATE 25 April 1990 – Age 21

DHL Stormers Vodacom Super Rugby – 2011

Scrum-half

As with Nic Groom, Louis Schreuder has made the rise to Stormers level very quickly. A very talented rugby player who is quick to the break down, and a good service, if, but for a second step sometimes that does slow him down, he has represented SA at the IRB U21 World Cupand has huge ability, and a great boot. Again a good visionary and reader of the game, and a leader for the future.

 

 

Ricky Darryl Schroeder

HEIGHT 168 cm

WEIGHT 77 Kg

BIRTH DATE 5 January 1991 – Age 20

DHL Western Province – Vodacom Cup – 2011

Scrum-half

Another product of Paul Roos Gymnasium, Schroeder has risen through the ranks, playing Craven week in 2009, 2010, WP U19 in 2011 rising to WP in the Vodacom Cup. The young half back will gain invaluable experience by being in the squad.

 

 

FLYHALVES:

Gary van Aswegen

HEIGHT 178 cm

WEIGHT 88 Kg

BIRTH DATE 18 February 1990 – Age 21

DHL Stormers Vodacom Super Rugby – 2011

Fly half

Looks like a definite Fly half for the future, this young lad has all the makings of a strong fly half, who doesn’t shirk his responsibilities on defence. Hampered by injury last year, AC feels he has all the aspect of a 10.

 

 

Demetri Catrakilis

HEIGHT 176 cm

WEIGHT 82 Kg

BIRTH DATE 6 July 1989 – Age 22

DHL Western Province – 2011

Fly half

Catrakilis, who by his own admission bases his game on Wilkinson and Carter spent some time with Racing Metro before returning to South Africa and UCT to score 136 points to help lead the Ikeys to be crowned 2011 champions. Called up to the WP squad because of injuries to the regular fly halves, he fitted in to give a good account of himself as a fly half. Great place kicking ability, as well as good tactical kicking add to a portfolio of excellent defence, solid tackling, and a mature generalship of the back line. A potential bok of the future.

 

 

Kurt Kendall Coleman

HEIGHT 177 cm

WEIGHT 82 Kg

BIRTH DATE 29 January 1990 – Age 21

DHL Stormers Super Rugby – 2011

Fly half

A product of Grey High, Coleman was given the opportunity to play last year with the injury to Peter Grant. Another to come out of the WP rugby institute, Coleman has the talent, but yet to really prove it on the Super 15 stage. His kicking in the warm up match was very wayward, and this area of his game really needs to improve if he is to get regular game time.

 

 

Burton Francis

HEIGHT 184 cm

WEIGHT 90 Kg

BIRTH DATE 2 January 1987 – Age 25

Blue Bulls Super Rugby – 2008

Fly half

Having played Super Rugby for the Lions and the Bulls, Francis has moved down to the Stormers for the 2012 campaign. With all the fly half injuries last year, it was felt that this was an area that needed bolstering. A sound place kicker, and powerful boot, Francis was nudged out of the staring lineup at the Lions by Jantjies and James. He was Vodacom Cup Player of the Year in 2008, and will be hoping to re-discover some of that formfor a bit more game time this year.

 

 

Peter Grant

HEIGHT 186 cm

WEIGHT 92 Kg

BIRTH DATE 15 August 1984 – Age 27

DHL Stormers Super Rugby – 2006

Fly half

A solid player, has done well for the Stormers since being picked for the team. A solid and reliable kicker, Grant is a player with a big heart, and will never let you down. Having always struggled to take the next step up, he moved to the Kobe Steelers acouple of years ago to ply his trade there. For the last 2 he has flitted between the Steelers and the Stormers, and although he looked sound when he came back last year, we are yet to see how his form has held up for this season.

 

 

Willem van Wyk

HEIGHT 180 cm

WEIGHT 71 Kg

BIRTH DATE 29 May 1991 – Age 20

DHL Western Province – 2011

Fly half

A product of Paarl Gym, Van Wyk is an exceptionally good place kicker and light on his feet with great ball handling skills. He was the leading points scorer in the U19 Absa Currie Cup competition in 2010. Realistically will only play if the injury list mounts, but a talent for the future.

 

 

CENTRES:

Marcel Girard Brache

HEIGHT 190cm

WEIGHT 88 Kg

BIRTH DATE 15 October 1987 – Age 23

DHL Western Province – 2010

Centre

2 years ago Brache was social club rugby for the Ikey Tornado’s, now he is the Stormers squad. Good feet, and good acceleration means he can play centre, back or wing, all though his speed, or lack there of, means he probably wont be utilised on the wing. First played for WP in 2010, but officially signed up for them in 2011.

 

 

Juan Leon de Jongh

HEIGHT 177 cm

WEIGHT 87 Kg

BIRTH DATE 15 March 1988 – Age 23

DHL Stormers Vodacom Super Rugby – 2010

Centre

Stuck in the shadow of De Villiers and Fourie for so long now, Juan de Jongh has the chance to really show his ability. He debuted for the Boks at the age of 22 against Wales, and celebrated with a try and a win. A very dynamic and strong centre and agile on his feet, he can carve up any defensive line. This season will see him pair up with De Villiers for the starting partnership in the centre.

 

 

Jean de Villiers

HEIGHT 190 cm

WEIGHT 103 Kg

BIRTH DATE 24 February 1981 – Age 30

DHL Stormers Vodacom Super Rugby – 2005

Centre

Coming towards the end of his career, Jean de Villiers has been a great servant to the Stormers and South African rugby. Having played on the wing earlier in his career, has made centre his own. He will start most of the matches with De Jongh, unless injured.

HEIGHT 185 cm

WEIGHT 92 Kg

BIRTH DATE 24 January 1990 – Age 21

DHL Stormers Vodacom Super Rugby – 2007

Wing

Always perceived to be on the light side, he is never one to shirk his responsibilities, He tackles way above his weight and has a very good technique coupled with bravery and natural timing. He is a versatile backline player, an elusive runner and can spot a gap from a mile. He provides cover at fullback and at wing.

 

 

Bryan Habana

HEIGHT 180 cm

WEIGHT 94 Kg

BIRTH DATE 12 June 1983 – Age 28

Golden Lions Super Rugby – 2004

Wing

Not much is needed to be said with Habana, apart from he just doesn’t seem to have captured that magic of yesteryear. Having been re-signed by the Stormers at s reputed vast cost, he simply must perform.
