  • Up to #13 this Backline is perfect IMO. 14 and 15 are the concerns for me.

  • @KSA Shark © (Comment 10) :

    They get older the wider they go in the backline.

    It used to be the older you got the closer you moved to the scrum, at the stormers it is, the older you get the closer you move to the stands. :wink:

  • @KSA Shark © (Comment 10) : what an old backline – Grant must feel like spring chicken. I thought they have plenty of talent down in Cape.

  • Eish i am starting have serious disagreements with Rassie – Surely the logic would be to put Monty at 15 and Conrad at 14 – and send Wylie off to the retirement paddock.

    Monty fluffs occasionally – but hell he doesn’t miss the polls and is a lot better than Wylie the Human

  • @Worcestershire Sauce (Comment 27) : naaaah – u forgot about fransie’s 3.

    I agree that Monty would do much better than Wylie. But not so much because of the place kicking – I do not think that Stormers problem lies in this department – it’s the other kicking

  • @McLovin (Comment 2) :

    What’s even more worrying is that Percy is STILL better than Goose-step…

    Big mistake by Rassie not keeping Percy and slotting Goose-step on the wing…

    Stormers to go yet another weekend without assisting the Bulls and Sharks!

  • @bryce_in_oz (Comment 39) :

    Clearly you did not watch the match last week where Percy was pretty average.

    You have never liked Conrad since he made the Boks and yet he was the form SA fullback during last year’s S14.

    Yes he is going through a bad patch and was pretty average during last year’s tests but give the guy a break for goodness sake.

    Every player goes through rough patches, dont they??

    And lay off the Stormers players!!! :evil:
