Tuqiri heading for Stormers?

Cape Town – It seems Western Province chief professional coach Rassie Erasmus’ recent trip to Sydney could pay strong dividends for both WP and his Stormers team.

Two days ago young Brumbies import Matt Toomua showed just what a fine acqusition he was when he excelled as a replacement flyhalf in his debut for Province at a sodden Newlands. It was Toomua’s break that set up the bonus point try scored by Frikkie Welsh, and then, just for good measure, he sent out a long pass that put in Pieter Louw for WP’s fifth try just a few minutes later.

WP coach Allister Coetzee was enthused by Toomua’s performance, almost to the extent that he was talking about girding Province chief executive Rob Wagner into trying to secure Toomua into a longer contract. At the moment he is only set to be in the Cape until the end of the Currie Cup season. Sadly for WP, however, this is all probably going to be pie in the sky, for Toomua is not a player the Brumbies are likely to let out of their clutches.

Another Australian though who could well be playing out of Newlands next year is former Wallaby wing Lote Tuqiri. The former league star, who lost his contract with the Australian Rugby Union earlier this year due to a disciplinary breach, has told an Australian newspaper that he has been talking to the Stormers.

“I’m talking to French club Toulon and may even be playing against the boys next year in South Africa in the Super 14,” Tuqiri was quoted as saying.

It has also been rumoured that Tuqiri is in the sights of another South African Super 14 franchise, the Lions. The Lions and WP will be locked in dispute this week over the future of Springbok centre Jaque Fourie, who is determined to move to the Cape while the Lions are equally determined to keep him in Johannesburg. WP have already signed Springbok wing Bryan Habana for next year.

    I wouldn’t call Tuquiri useless. He is quite a good player when he is on form.

  • Get rid of Wookie first……then look locally and then as a last ditch effort offer Tiquiri a pay per try contract
