“Underdog” Stormers team to face the Sharks

Allister Coetzee has made two changes to last weeks starting team for this all important clash against the Currie Cup Champion Sharks.

Schalk Burger returns to captain the side along with the promising Rynhardt Elstadt who takes his place in the second row. The rest of the team is pretty much the same side who thrashed the Western Force with the exception of Ethienne Reynecke who replaces young UCT hooker Siyabonga Ntubeni.

According to a comment made by Tank Lanning on twitter, the former Lions hooker threatened to leave the Cape side if he was not picked this weekend. Surely no player can hold a team to ransom.

Gary Van Aswegan replaces Lionel Cronje on the bench.

Here is the team:

15 Gio Aplon, 14 Danie Poolman, 13 Jaque Fourie, 12 Jean de Villiers, 11 Bryan Habana, 10 Peter Grant, 9 Dewaldt Duvenage, 8 Duane Vermeulen, 7 Francois Louw, 6 Schalk Burger (c), 5 Andries Bekker, 4 Rynhardt Elstadt, 3 Brok Harris, 2 Deon Fourie, 1 Wicus Blaauw.

Subs: 16 Ethienne Reynecke, 17 CJ van der Linde, 18 De Kock Steenkamp, 19 Nick Koster, 20 Ricky Januarie, 21 Gary van Aswegen, 22 Juan de Jongh.

  • Apparently, the former Lions hooker threatened to leave the Cape side if he was not picked this weekend. Talk about windgat!! Surely no player can hold a team to ransom.

    Just giving him enough rope to hang himself… Ntubeni is the future…

  • Typical Stormers always grabbing the underdog tag!!
    Impressive side though!
    Let’s hope our midfield and breakdown is on top form, otherwise we will have big problems.

  • correct me if i am wrong but do you not have to be lower down in a table to be classed as underdogs? think the stormers are starting with excuses early,,,,, :cool:

  • Wth? Ettiene Reyneke. If he does that tell him he can take his kit and go! Why do the stormers put up with that? Stormers will be favourites here WPW so don’t you grab the underdog tag here okay? :)

  • Alaister Coetzee asked John Plumtree after the Currie Cup final—”Plum, I thought I had the journey planned, how did you beat me?”
    “Pretty simple,” replied Plum, “I picked my players for their intelligence and asked them just one question.”
    “That simple?” said Coetzee. “Yep,”replied Plum, “pick one of my squad and see how he does.”
    Coetzee thought for a while then nominated Pat Lambie. Plum called him over and asked him, “Who is the child of your father and of your mother who is not your brother and is not your sister?” “Ah simple, Coach,” says Pat, “it’s me.”
    “Well done, Pat,” said Plum, and Coetzee was very impressed. He returned to the hotel and wondered about the intelligence of his team. He called in Schalk Burger and asked him, “Who is the child of your father and of your mother who is not your brother and is not your sister?”
    Schalk thought and thought and couldn’t come up with the answer. “Can I think about it a bit more, Coach?—I’ll give you an answer tomorrow.”
    “Of course,” said Coetzee, “you’ve got 24 hours. But it is very important that you come up with the answer.”
    Schalk went away, thinking as hard as he could, and then he called in his team-mates. Juan de Jongh thought it might be his grandpa but wasn’t sure. Wicus Blaauw was certain that it couldn’t be anyone. Peter Grant refused to answer in case he was sacked for not knowing.
    Tiaan Liebenberg thought it would be an uncle in Zimbabwe who had been adopted as a child. Ricky January went into the foetal position. The rest of the team wouldn’t even hazard a guess. Twenty hours later, Schalk was very worried that he still had no answer with only four hours to go. Eventually Burger thought, “I know, I’ll ring Bobby Skinstadt—he’s bloody smart, he’ll know the answer.”
    He phoned Bob. “Bob, tell me—who is the child of your father and of your mother who is not your brother and is not your sister?”
    “Very simple,” said Skinstadt, “It’s me.”
    “Of course,” said Schalk and rang Coetzee. “Coach, I’ve got the answer—it’s Bob Skinstadt!”
    “No, you idiot,” said Coetzee, “It’s Pat Lambie.”

  • @Crock (Comment 126) : i think I would be surprised if it is not John although I have some doubts whether he deserves starting spot not because something wrong with him but because Bis, Jannie, Beast seem to be better in all respective front row position. The other thing of course they probabbly know that they have to play out of their skins as their places are less certain.

    Having said that I don’t think we have any deputy ligned up. I don’t think Matfield is an answer having account to his obvious ref irritation if the things get hot, Juan Smith sadly out of the picture and neither Burger or de Villiers are convincing options to me.

  • @rekinek, I agree. The decision to be made is, do we select the best captain (without which we are worse off, and don’t have the best player in that position) or the best players in each position (worse off again without captain Smit). So, which is the lesser of the two evils? Tough decision, and I would have made it lobger ago, not this close to the WC!!

  • @Crock (Comment 126) : John will be there and will be the Captain. But it sounds like PD has got something up his sleave. He might anounce something like John Captain while VIC and Jean De Villiers being co-Captains or something.
