Earl Rose now a Stormer

Peter Grant has been ruled out of the Stormers’ match against the Brumbies tomorrow and will be replaced by Kurt Coleman, who was bracketed in along with Grant when the team was announced.

Peter Grant will fly back to Cape Town a week earlier than his team mates to recover in time for the play-offs.

In the meantime, superxv.com report that Earl Rose has been called to fly into Australia to join up with the Stormers ahead of their match against the Rebels next weekend. Earl Rose, currently playing in Griquas, has been playing for the Lions and then fell out with John Mitchell and has since not played top flight rugby.

We wish Grant a speedy recovery and all the best to Earl Rose in his new role.

  • If there was a coach that could bring out the best in Earl it IS Allister Coetzee.

    Earl Rose is not that bad a player. He just needs someone to mentor him and to believe in his abilities as a player!! :roll:

  • Hopefully he’s become more disciplined at Griquas. And learned to tackle.

    Seems to have done ok-ish for them in the VC.

    Desperate times…..

    Noble of you to defend him Wes..

    You do have a good point though, Coetzee won’t do something stupid unless he has absolutely no other option..

    And as you said, its only the Rebels..

  • Stormers Entertainment must be a bit weak down under. Desperate desperate times

    Ok seriously, players only get opportunities to make a come back like this probably once in their life. Even if he does not play I hope he adds value and makes an impression.

  • If he learns to tackles or should I say grows some balls to atleast try than he will be fine,he is creative enough on attack but I’d love to see what he would do if willem alberts was running towards him ball in hand and his the last defender

    I still believe the Lions stuffed up his career just like they did with Solly Tybilika and numerous others!! :twisted:

    I read on twitter some one ask quade whose his most difficult flyhalf he played against, he said two guys. Can’t remember the first but Andre was one of them.

  • To actually make a comeback or learn to tackle he needs to actually pitch up at a practice – or even better a game. I think the Lions found out his GPS needed replacing during a sevens tourno????

  • @wpw (Comment 10) : 100% agree with you. He has tremendous talent and has the X-factor that many backline players miss and I for one will not be laughing at seeing that we have a harmless backline. Trust the Stormers to work on him, they are afterall the kings of backline play and players in SA. Think Earl can be a Cooper of some sort. Pity we are clueless when it comes to backline play else we would have tried to revive his career.

    Bulls: Jaco van der Westey
    Sharks: JLP
    Cheetahs: Naas Olivier
    Lions: Elton – for his dramatic fall from grace and going drinking with Os before a game
    Stormers: Mcjanuarie and soon to be joined by Rose.

    Why are Flyhalves so prominent on this list? :O

  • As funny/sad as this is, the reality is that he’ll hopefully just gather splinters on the bench for most likely just one game… against the Rebels. And he really isn’t THAT bad, I’d still like to know what happened to Watts, surely he has more experience with the team. I’m guessing the emphasis on a valid visa for picking Rose means maybe Elgar doesn’t have one?

  • @wpw (Comment 85) : Let’s see if they can muster a similar comeback after halftime against the Rebels with their new pivot. :twisted:

  • @klempie (Comment 88) : seriously, is that the best? Coleman, I would think, should be a little better than Dewaldt at flyhalf.

  • @molly (Comment 89) : didn’t watch the game (except for Ricky’s kick on some highlites) but it does not sound like Duvenhage was bad at all plus he got the kicks in. I mean wasn’t he playing good ?

  • @molly (Comment 87) : I doubt Elgar has one but during pre season games Allisters attitude towards Elgar always seemed negative, as if he couldn’t wait to be rid of him. Just something I picked up on.

  • I’m also going to go out and just say as much as I hate everything about Earl Rose I don’t think he is as bad as he is made out to be. The way he and his father shafted WP back in the day he should never have been allowed near the squad again.

  • @Clayton(PJLD) (Comment 92) : imo he has some talent but it is difficult to get going at the Lions – just little support, by which comment I mean that there are few experienced high quality players who know how to win and can guide a guy like Rose.
    There seem to be quite a bit off the field stuff though with him.

    @Clayton(PJLD) (Comment 92) :

    Look, I think you both are spot on, even Wes made a good point earlier..

    He will most likely only play IF Coleman gets hurt, and I fancy Coleman will play the full 80 against Giteau tomorrow, so whatever the Rebels can throw at them will be below that level.

    So he will sit on the bench against one of the worst teams in the competition.

    If only our coach backed our reserves like Coetzee does..

    All other flyhalves crooked and Pienaar move didn’t happen.

    How can he go from being bracketed in this weekend to being sent home and not playing until the playoffs?

  • @Richard Ferguson (Comment 103) : That should explain the risks that WP are taking with their players.

    JdV was the same a few weeks ago when he re-injured himself from an OLD injury sustained against the Crusaders. Oh and then Coetzee forgot to mention that the match against the Crusaders was the previous week.

    if he keeps playing or trying to play players who haven’t recovered fully he is going to cost himself the title

  • @robdylan (Comment 119) : ok ok no more Earl Jokes . . His a good player that did a few stupid things. The past is the past. Read somewhere the reason he got picked was because of visa and passport issues. The other fly half’s didn’t have one.
