Allister picks Whitehead

Tim Whitehead will start at inside centre for the Stormers against the Cheetahs at Newlands this Saturday.

Coach Allister Coetzee has chosen not to play a safe no risk approach with Willem De Waal at flyhalf and has instead kept his halfback pairing of Dewaldt Duvenage and Peter Grant.

After a welcome return to form Fijian flyer Sireli Naqelivuki gets rotated to the bench for the slick and destructive Gio Aplon, another sign that the Stormers are looking to play a very attacking game.

The pack remains unchanged from last weeks demolition of the Hurricanes.

Stormers match 22:

15 Joe Pietersen, 14 Gio Aplon, 13 Jaque Fourie, 12 Tim Whitehead, 11 Bryan Habana, 10 Peter Grant, 9 Dewaldt Duvenage, 8 Duane Vermeulen, 7 Francois Louw, 6 Schalk Burger (c), 5 Andries Bekker, 4 Anton van Zyl, 3 Brok Harris, 2 Tiaan Liebenberg, 1 Wicus Blaauw.
Subs: 16 Deon Fourie, 17 JC Kritzinger, 18 De Kock Steenkamp, 19 Pieter Louw, 20 Ricky Januarie, 21 Willem de Waal, 22 Sireli Naqelevuki.

  • GOOD side that.

    Kalie Woekie should have stayed in the side IMO, use him while he is hot.

    Keeping the halfback pairing unchanged is also a great move.

  • What about that little Draghoender dude who plays in the Varsity Cup? He would be my choice as an up-and-coming 12 for Province.

    Actually, wouldn’t mind him in our camp, but since this is a Weepee thread…

    They asked us if they could post articles with a Stormers slant, we said YES on condition that it was a negative slant, seems they lied to us. :wink:

  • I want to see the team, I saw something on the news about “Door opening up for Lambie” – I was at the Gym and read the headline, it will be interesting to see what that is all about.

  • This is a SA Derby. So neutral. Good luck to both Stormers and Cheetahs.

  • @Letgo (Comment 23) : Lambie should have been on the bench from the start. Needed to bring him in a long time back. Now this might be good news if we see Lambie’s name there, but he will unfortunately not be game fit.

  • @FireTheLooser (Comment 28) : :lol: Still neutral though. May the best team win there. Though if Stormers win we will probably have two saffa teams in the semi. So maybe my support should be fully behind them. Nah, cant do it, two saffa teams playing, have to be neutral. :razz:
