  • Although there is very little significance to these types of games, I suspect the Stormers will crush these guys big time.

  • Apart from the goalkicking I read that little Gary van Aswegen had an outstanding game. Hopefully he can continue to build on this success. Playing conditions must have been poor coz he’s generally a very reliable goalkicker.
