Welcome to the fifth Windhoek Lager Team of the Week for the Super Rugby season. We have decided to make it an all South African team and base it only on the weekend match. So if your favourite player did not play on the weekend, he will not be in the team.

Thanks must go to Windhoek Lager for sponsoring this weekly Team. We will have a Team of the Year competition at the end of the season, so make sure to take note of certain players who consistently make the team.

Error, Ad (ID: 47) is expired or does not exist!

1. Dean Greyling – Had a fantastic game for the Bulls, cornerstone of their scrum

2. Deon Fourie – Scored one forwards and one awesome backline try

3. Brock Harris – Was the front man for the Stormers

4. Bakkies Botha – Purely because he did not get cited after playing the Lions

5. Andries Bekker – Great game for the Stormers, hope he can carry that forward to the Boks

6. Keegan Daniel – Was everywhere on the night.

7. Willem Alberts – Do I have to say anything?

8. Duane Vermeulen – Strong performance, was the best loosie for the Stormers

9. Fourie du Preez – Without him, the Bulls would suck. Oh wait…

10. Peter Grant – Kicked like a machine, was the best flyhalf this weekend by far!

11. Bjorn Basson – Good to see his name pop up on the scoreboard

12. Jean de Villiers – One half of the best centre combination in SA!

13. Jaque Fourie – The other, stronger, better tackling half!

14. Odwa Ndungane – Defence, defence, defence.

15. Gio Aplon – If only our other fullbacks had his pace!

    Not sure I agree with Keegan Daniels he may have been every where but his hands let him down. Peter Grant would be a shoe in if the Boks were picked tomorrow, I was worried he would come back from Japan like Jaco vd Westhuisen, and be out of sorts, but wow really looking good!!

  • I also wouldn’t have picked Daniel, but struggling to think who I WOULD have picked at 6 :)

    I though Pat Cilliers had a pretty good game for the Lions – just mentioning it, of course. Not saying he should be in the team.

    I battled with the 6 jersey, and we already had enough Stormers in the Team :mrgreen:

    It was a close call between Brock and Pat.. I felt Brock was better in the scrumming work..

  • @CapeShark (Comment 18) : With all due respect to Rich – if you take the difficult circumstances and opponents into consideration and the game that was played in the last 60 minutes – I think it might have been a different picture in a few spots! ;-)

    It’s easy to “shine” when your opponents are sitting way down on the log! :razz: :twisted:

  • O please, so the Stormers gave the Force a hiding at Newlands and now suddenly they are the best thing since sliced bread? The Bulls are utterly crap because they never invested playing time for younger players, more relying on the geriatrics to carry them trough, and now they are suffering because of it. Ludike doesnt have the guts like Plum to make some big changes. And my beloved Sharks were made to look crap by an awesome Saders team, although I am mighty proud of the way they decided not to go lay down and play dead.

  • how was beast overlooked? perhaps becuase there was only 1 scrum during the time he was on?

    sharks should play J smit at 2 this weekend alongside beast and van staaden ,van staaden a th??
    Imo i would like to see sykes and mostert play together then keep the same loose trio

    9.Mcleod
    10. Bosman
    12. Jacobs
    13. ST/JLP(i believe he would be fantastic at 13 ,seen him play here for bulls,only worry is he would have to defend vs JF)

    Back 3- Jpp Ndungane Mvovo

    So ;

    1.Van Staaden
    2. J smit
    3. Beast
    4. Mostert
    5. Sykes
    6.Daniels
    7.Alberts
    8. Kankowski
    9. Mcleod
    10. Bosman
    11.Jpp
    12.Jacobs
    13.ST/JLP
    14.Mvovo
    15.Ndungane- V dynamic ,v heavy t5 and fast big loosies

    dangerous dangerous back 3
    good runners in midfield
    Alot of change all at once tho may cause issues

  • @Talent (Comment 29) : McCleod’s been given so many chances, he is not repaying the faith Plum has in him. He needs to stop taking those silly blind-side darts. That only works in high school. But at the same time I understand that we can’t chuck that new young scrummy in and expect miracles either.

  • @CapeShark (Comment 31) : We know what we have in charl ,top class scrummy with the best pass in sa . I think he will battle without pat ,becuase the combination they have formed clicks ,right now he is operating on a prosthetic :P ,he will take that extra instant to find his fh which may lead to him braving new options regarding descision making

  • @Talent (Comment 38) : well look – I will never blame a scrummie for fumbling a ball behind a scrum that’s being walked back over him.

    I do feel that Charl’s decision-making was well off his best, particularly when it came to kicking. I LIKE the fact that he doesn’t kick the ball, rather giving it to the flyhalf to dictate the play.

  • @robdylan (Comment 37) : Sure, I see your point. But there are senseless elements of his game, like those darting little runs that always end up with him fumbling or being slung into touch. I also felt his tackling during the Chiefs game was quite poor and allowed them to march it up the middle quite a bit. Overall he’s okay though.

  • @robdylan (Comment 39) : We seemed to run it a helluva lot from inside our own 22 against the Crusaders. I know it was a game played for the spectators but it was a bit tactically flawed, wouldn’t mind Charl kicking a little more when we’re under our own posts…although that goes for the whole backline…

  • @CapeShark (Comment 41) : I don’t think his boot is good enough to justify him kicking under any circumstance. Charl’s strengths are his amazing pace and his beautiful pass. He must maximise those as much as possible. His role is to get ball to the flyhalf… that is it.

  • Want to give the Stormers a ‘Nappy Rash’ this weekend?

    Given our problems at centre, play Jacques Botes, Keegan Daniel and Willem Alberts as our Loosies.

    Play Ryan Kankowski at Centre – 13 in place of Beth.

    It may not work out great technically, but hell it would be worth watching the panic on the Stormers faces!

    We will nevertheless still win – just added entertainment value on the day!
