S14 ’09 Game 33 – Stormers(56) v Lions(18)FT


Written by Andre Bosch (KSA Shark ©)

Tagged with : ,

Two SA teams meet in Cape Town to see who can get their seasons back on track.

The Stormers are 1 from 4 and the Lions are 1 from 3.

While a win is a MUST for the Stormers it is not as essential for the Lions as it is an away game and it is okay if you lose those. :wink:

Will the Stormers stick to the plan that got them so close in Pretoria or will they revert to fancy rugby?

Will Heinke vd Merwe and Jannes Labuschagne have the desired impact for the Lions?

Venue: Newlands, Cape Town
Kick-off: 17.00 Local Time

Referee: Craig Joubert (South Africa)
ARs: Phillip Bosch (South Africa), Jaco Peyper (South Africa)
TMO: Shaun Veldsman (South Africa)

Replacements:
16 Deon Fourie, 17 JD Moller, 18 AJ Venter, 19 Francois Louw, 20 Dewaldt Duvenhage, 21 Peter Grant, 22 Tonderai Chavhanga.

15 Louis Ludik, 14 Ashwin Willemse, 13 Jaque Fourie, 12 Barry Goodes, 11 Henno Mentz, 10 André Pretorius, 9 Jano Vermaak, 8 Willem Alberts, 7 Franco van der Merwe, 6 Cobus Grobbelaar (captain), 5 Anton van Zyl, 4 Jannes Labuschagne, 3 Lawrence Sephaka, 2 Willie Wepener, 1 Heinke van der Merwe.

  • @walter van transvaal.co.za (Comment 2) :

    I actually think a win is quite easily possible.

    The Lions have showed some great promise and you have a tight five that will kill the back five that the Stormers have.
