  • Stormers are going to have to play a better game than they talk, for once. Who’ve they got at 1 and 2? Moller and Liebenberg?

  • ok. Don’t think much of Moller, but Liebenberg is a good guy. He’ll do well under Rassie.

    Better than Kuün anyway. He wasn’t even a very good flank!

  • Great game Blues….

    They gonna be a handful this year…
    Teams will have to slow the game down and put their forwards under pressure for a chance…
