Jaque Fourie ‘couldn’t be happier’

Jaque Fourie has made an enormous difference to the Stormers this year, on and off the field, but moving to Cape Town has given him a new lease of life as well.

Len Kaplan reports for rugby365.com

The 27-year-old Fourie, a 54-Test cap Springbok, joined the Stormers in January after 68 games for the struggling Cats and Lions.

“When I was at the Lions, things didn’t click, we didn’t get together,” said Fourie in an exclusive interview with rugby365.com.

“The whole structure there was a little bit wrong, [like] driving to training every day for gym in Randburg for an hour and then having to drive through to Jo’burg Stadium.

“It was not only that – there’s a lot of stuff that’s different at the Stormers which I’m really enjoying. I’m really happy here… I couldn’t be happier,” he added.

Asked whether he and his wife are enjoying living in the Western Cape, Fourie said: “My wife and I have settled down in Cape Town. We arrived here on January 3 and it’s been amazing. The people have been so helpful and accommodating.

“We’ve settled in at our house in Plattekloof and my wife and I are both enjoying it. It’s been tremendous, so we’re a very happy camp.

“Cape Town is awesome. I’m enjoying the training set-up in Bellville. I’m enjoying everything there – it’s been amazing.”

Fourie was enthusiastic about the two young inside centres he has had as midfield partners this season, Juan de Jongh and Tim Whitehead.

“They’re two exciting rugby players who are going to mean a lot for the Stormers and for SA for years to come,” he said.

“Tim was thrown in the deep end against the Cheetahs and he stood out quite amazingly. He played a fantastic game.

“Juan is getting stronger every game; he’s a player for the future.”

Fourie is very happy with the players outside him too, saying: “We’ve got a lot of exciting talent at fullback and wing as well.”

On Saturday at Eden Park, Fourie had as his direct opponent Blues outside centre Rene Ranger, who had been one of the stars of the Super 14 this year – but made little impact against the Stormers in the Blues 33-21 defeat.

“He’s a good player. He’s been playing well in the Super 14, but any player with room is a good player, especially if he’s got good feet,” Fourie commented.

“But if you shut him down early on, he can do nothing. You saw that on Saturday – if you cut his time off and his space off he’s actually an average player.”

This Friday against the Chiefs in Hamilton, Fourie faces All Black Richard Kahui, who has also done well at outside centre in the Super 14 so far this year.

“I’ve played against him a couple of times. He’s a good player as well, an exciting player. But that’s the beauty of the Super 14 – you’re playing against international players week in and week out and that’s the challenge of it.”

The Stormers are determined to deliver another impressive performance on Friday.

“We had a hiccup against the Force, but we regrouped and showed on Saturday what we can do,” Fourie told rugby365.com.

“We worked hard during the week on things we wanted to rectify and we won 33-21 which was great. We were on a high after the game but now it’s back to doing the hard work during the week because we’re focused on beating the Chiefs.”

  • Interesting to see the training ground problem being one of the core Lions problems as perceived by Fourie.

    So my solution still stands……snoiL must move.

    Pierre Spies reckons he is the best 8th man in world rugby (Latest SA rugby mag interview)

    Is there anything wrong with believing in ones own ability??

    Both Fourie and Spies are arguably the best in their positions in the world or do you dispute this??

It had nothing to do with the blues being under par or attacking badly. The stormers are a serious threat and you have to be very one-eyed not to see it.

  • @Hertford Highlander (Comment 72) :I beg to differ,steyn gave a very honest and reasonable answer. Simply that he is only 22 yrs old and wants to experience more of the world. To experience a new culture,language and to be known for more than just being a rugby player,as he is here. I was very impressed with what he had to say and think he will come back a better player and person.

  • …wise up …. and how does the pay compare….but interesting that is your take on it .

    I don’t know Mr Steyn so am not sure what else he wants to be known as !

    I guess that is your take on Carl Hayman as well :lol:

  • @zenrugby (Comment 80) : Yeah not great with Hayman.

    Don’t know what the developments in France are with the Salary Cap.

    …..there is just so much money there, can’t see that changing quickly.

    I see Mr Botha could finally be on his way to Toulon as well…they could have an awesome side next year.

    Looks like the SARU just pick anyone anyway so your offshore side could be better than your on shore soon……

    ….if it’s not already !

We have so many great schooboy players. Our varsity cup games are semi professional and televised with a good following.honestly our rugby has never been better.

    Lol. Sonny Bill Williams.

    Are you having a laugh or still waiting for your Aussie visa application to come through?

    Sonny Bill Williams. Fook me that a giggle. He’s played what – like 10 game sof professional rugby union. He’s spent more time in boxing training than in union training and its rumoured he’s due to go back to back in NRL next year.

    This is a wind-up, surely?

    As for your comments on JdV – I also live “up here” mate and yes, JdV didnt get on so well when he first arrived but he’s now starting regularly.

    You either need to watch more rugby or take off the eye-patch mate.

  • @VinChainSaw (Comment 117) : Well yes it is a bit of a wind up…..pleased you spotted it.

    To be honest only really watched him play for the Bulldogs and Kiwi’s…..it was always evident he had something special

    I watched him on Saturday for Toulon…and he still looks great….i think he will ruffle a few feathers yet in rugby.

    He’s apparently the most in demand player on the planet at the moment (if you believe what you read).

    I must admit he is quite unconventional to watch….he reminds me of a basketball player playing rugby.

    But by all reports he is getting better all the time.

    I don’t think he will ever come back to NZ for the RWC would love to see it….i always thought he would be a great winger but may lack a bit of gas….looks like he is fancying he chances in the mid field these days.

    ……he is an absolute beast physically…… and he must look at guys like your beloved JdV and think to himself ….i’ll have a crack at that.

    …watch this space would be great to see him back Down Under …but i can’t see us ever being able to afford him !
