S14 ’09 Game 60 – Hurricanes (34) v Stormers (11) F/T


Written by Andre Bosch (KSA Shark ©)

Tagged with : , ,

The Stormers play their penultimate tour match down in Wellington.

The Stormers have a theoretic chance of still making the semi-finals, but one feels that it is just that. Theoretic! Languishing in 11th with two victories from eight, their chances are all but over. Salvaging some pride at the end of the season will be the most important thing for them now.

Will the Stormers be demoralized by knowing they have no real chance of making the semi’s, taking away the hunger required to beat the Hurricanes?

Or will it be the hurricanes who think the Stormers are easy points and then stumble?

  • Free State scrumhalf Jandre Blom’s personal contribution of 25 points in his side’s 35-19 win, sounded the death knell for Western Province in the Vodacom Cup match at the Danie Craven Stadium in Stellenbosch on Friday evening.
