Stormers still Grant-less

Stormers coach Allister Coetzee has announced his team to take on the Crusaders on Saturday and will again be without Peter Grant at flyhalf. Bryan Habana has also been ruled out with injury and we will see Johann Sadie taking his place in the starting line up ahead of Danie Poolman.

Good news though is that experienced hooker Tiaan Liebenberg will make his return to Super Rugby from the bench this weekend, after picking up an injury early in the season.

In the absence of Peter Grant, Lionel Cronje will continue where he left off against the Sharks last weekend, in a very impressive debut starting match.

Stormers team: Conrad Jantjes, Johann Sadie, Jaque Fourie, Jean de Villiers, Gio Aplon, Lionel Cronje, Dewaldt Duvenage, Duane Vermeulen, Francois Louw, Schalk Burger (captain) , Andries Bekker, Rynhardt Elstadt, CJ van der Linde, Deon Fourie, Wicus Blaauw.

Reserves: Tiaan Liebenberg, Brok Harris, De Kock Steenkamp, Nick Koster, Ricky Januarie, Kurt Coleman, Juan de Jongh.

  • Why do the Stormers love playing youngsters out of position? Are they that keen to get Sadie into the team?

  • @Richard Ferguson (Comment 10) : Look, he is a fantastic prospect but obviously as a centre. I would have thought JJ Engelbrecht or Danie Poolman would have come in instead.

  • @McLovin (Comment 11) : They did it with Koster and then Cronje at fullback for the vc team and now Sadie. Maybe I should have rephrased that comment coz it hasn’t happened all that often.

  • On the topic of Sadie, unfortunately I haven’t seen much of him, but he seems to have the rugby folk in the Cape raving.

    And whilst Poolman hasn’t done anything wrong, he hasn’t exactly set the world alight either. That’s what I think the coaches think. I think. :smile:

  • @McLovin (Comment 16) : I watched the whole of the vodacom quarter final and Sadie played very very well, he really can make things happen. He went off injured though.
