The Stormers side to take on a ‘second string’ Bulls side has been announced and there is no room for the ‘Fijian Sleepwalker’ who drops out of the match 22 altogether.

Joe Pietersen makes a welcome return at fullback with Gio Aplon moving to right wing in place of the sleepwalking giant. Bryan Habana also returns on the left wing after recovering from the rib injury he sustained against the Crusaders which means the promising Tim Whitehead moves to the bench.

The last change sees Wicus Blaauw returning to the starting lineup after making a full recovery and takes over from JD Moller who drops out of the match 22 in favour of the versatile Argentinian Eusebio Guinazu.

Here ARE the team:

Stormers: 15 Joe Pietersen, 14 Gio Aplon, 13 Jaque Fourie, 12 Juan De Jongh, 11 Bryan Habana, 10 Peter Grant, 9 Dewaldt Duvenage, 8 Duane Vermeulen, 7 Francois Louw, 6 Schalk Burger (captain), 5 Andries Bekker, 4 Adriaan Fondse, 3 Brok Harris, 2 Tiaan Liebenberg, 1 Wicus Blaauw.
Replacements: 16 Deon Fourie, 17 Eusebio Guinazu, 18 Anton Van Zyl, 19 Pieter Louw, 20 Ricky Januarie, 21 Willem De Waal, 22 Tim Whitehead.

  • You guys should show them the same lack of respect that they`ve showed you. Go in, get the Bonus point try within 20 minutes then start pulling off your big guns one by one . . .
    Also you can maybe send up some of your third string guys to niggle guys like Bakkies or Adams that we know should be on the bench for them in the Semi`s. If the Bulls loose their cool and start swinging at you they might get suspended for the finals hehehehe
    I hope Stormers watch that match of wp vs Bulls in P town last year again before the weekend. Just to get them nice and worked up for this one. Remember fight fire with fire!

  • I would have liked it if they gave Whitehead another run and dropped Aplon to the bench – I think he has potential…

    Awesome post

    I never saw his clangers last week ….yet

    But i think he has been excellent for the Stormers this year

    ….surely it is hard to argue with that.

    …how do these foreign players qualify for SA teams anyway.

    …i think the NZ policy is you have to be eligible for the AB’s

    Okay I”LL say it

    Doos is the Afrikaans word for Box pronounced as you would pronounce Poor.

    Doos is a euphamism (for want of a better word) for CNUT (my spelling sucks :roll: :)
