Fatafehi waiting in the wings

The Stormers’ Tongan import Alipate Fatafehi could be a surprise addition to the squad on tour in Australasia.

The Cape Times reports that Fatafehi is currently in New Zealand although he is not an official member of the 24-man squad.

Fatafehi’s involvement in the Stormers’ training sessions has not been confirmed but the Stormers may turn to him to fill the void left by injured wings Tonderai Chavhanga and Nick Koster.

Sireli Naqelevuki is the only certainty at wing, but Fatafehi may well play a role during the five-match tour.

Stormers coach Rassie Erasmus has quite a few options on the wing but it is likely that conditions will play a major role in determining the make-up of his starting line-up.

Stormers spokesperson, Frikkie Erasmus said that it has been raining in Christchurch for the past few days. This may tempt Erasmus to continue with Willem de Waal at flyhalf with Peter Grant coming in on his outside, to further boost the Stormers’ kicking game against a resurgent Crusaders outfit.

Grant’s inclusion could see Gcobani Bobo shifting to the wing in Koster’s place. However, Conrad Jantjes is also available after being sidelined for the past few weeks, while Fatafehi’s inclusion remains an option.

    I’m finally coming to the realisation that when anything is Stormers/WP related then the words what, why, where and when should be avoided. Just accept that it is so no matter how absurd something may seem.

  • I actually posted this article with a comment in mind and then got sidetracked. (old age?, can’t multi task?, both?)

    He played for the VC team on 7 March but didn’t play for the two weekends after that, so he COULD have been in NZ for a while already.

    But as Salmonoid says, With WP (Rassie) anything is possible. Call Rassie what you like but don’t call him stupid.

    Sounds cool.

    I’m a Boston legal man myself. Have series 4 sitting on the shelf, but now that the kids have our bedroom Tv in their Tv lounge I don’t get to watch TV in bed anymore so it will have to wait a while. :sad:

    Are you old enough to have done national Service in SA?

    Ferdi Hartzenberg was a one time leader of the Conservative party, I dont think he was involved in covert ops. Ferdi Barnard maybe.

    Also a Boston Legal fan.

    Have you read the book yet, apparentyly really well worth it – its about his (back)road trips through SA and Africa and the places and charachters he comes across. Apparently a lot of nostalgia and new experiences for those that read it.
