Crushing blow for Moller and the Stormers


Written by Rob Otto (robdylan)

Posted in :Original Content, Stormers, Super 14 on 21 Apr 2008 at 10:05

Stormers loose head prop JD Moller has been ruled out for between 3 and 4 months, after diclocating his shoulder against the Hurricanes on Saturday.

The Stormers now face something of a crisis at prop; Eddie Andrews will not play at all this Super 14, while Schalk Ferreira has only just returned after recovering from a career-threatening neck injury. Youngsters Wikus Blaauw and Janro van Niekerk will also come into the reckoning.

Brian Mujati is apparently fine, after going off with cramp on Saturday.

Other bad news is that leading try-scorer Tonderai Chavanga is likely to be out for longer than the two weeks initially feared when he went down this weekend. Chavanga has injured his hamstring and will need an MRI scan to determine the prognosis of the injury. Gio Aplon is likely to take Chavanga’s spot on the right wing.

  • Sorry boys, but this does not bode well. I’ve never been a huge Moller fan, but there seems to be literally NO backup for him…

  • Aplon is no S14 player

    Des Fountain could come in for him but he has no hands whatsoever.

    Zaheer Ryland is having a brilliant VC season but he is also untested at S14 level.

    Props….eish.

  • This is seriously bad news, our scrum was noticeably weaker when JD left the field.

  • Wylies been immense at fullback,but at the moment we are talking wings and if i had to choose between Aplon and Rhyland id go for Ryland.

  • Hey Stormers the Sharks have this international loosehead prop, he was great when he played for the Bulls, they paid millions for him….but for you we can make a price and all….Kees make an ugly face to show the Stormers how mean you look.

  • Did I mention he can also play tighthead….but that’s not all, when you purchase the Leesing 2008, we will even throw in a free Jurie Els CD or 376….

  • Was really impressed with the Stormers’ performance on Saturday. They looked so good. Would really be sad if they lose that momentum now because of injuries.

  • Rudolph says that he hasn’t yet received a call from the WP Rugby Union….

    Rassie can I just add that the Leesing 2008 has hardly been used in years and really looks the part….we can also throw in a bit Paddy Power for free as a technical adviser on red card offences.

    Just heard confirmation of Pareira resigning.
    Really bad news for Bafana and couldnt come at aworse time. Where are we going to find a coach so shortly before the world cup – all the really good ones are signed and sealed till after 2010 or at least the European Cup.

  • Apparently this isn’t much of a surprise to SAFA as he has been trying to get out for a while and has already suggested two other coaches for the job(also brazilians)
