The Reds host the Stormers in the second match this morning, a match that could play like a bit of a final as these two massive teams take each other on, with the Reds hoping to get back on track to be able to feature in the play-offs and the Stormers looking to get back to winning ways after their first loss to the Crusaders last weekend.

The Reds welcome back Mike Harris into their midfield, and with him comes his tremendous kicking boot, that is sure to help tick along the Reds scoreboard. We also see Radike Samo back in the starting line-up, ready to take on the Stormers loosies.

The Stormers are without stand in captain Jean de Villiers, who has picked up a somewhat serious injury that will see him on the sidelines for a few months, with Bryan Habana moving into the midfield in his absence. The Stormers have also lost Andries Bekker for this game, and his experience in the second row and especially in the lineouts will be missed.

Reds: 1. Ben Daley,2. James Hanson,3. James Slipper,4. Rob Simmons,5. James Horwill (c),6. Scott Higginbotham,7. Beau Robinson,8. Radike Samo,9. Will Genia (vc),10. Sam Lane,11. Dom Shipperley,12. Mike Harris,13. Ben Tapuai,14. Rod Davies,15. Luke Morahan

Replacements :16. Albert Anae,17. Greg Holmes,18. Van Humphries,19. Jake Schatz,20. Liam Gill,21. Ben Lucas,22. Nick Frisby

Stormers: Joe Pietersen, Gerhard van den Heever, Bryan Habana, Juan de Jongh, Gio Aplon, Peter Grant (vice-captain), Dewaldt Duvenage, Duane Vermeulen (captain), Rynhardt Elstadt, Siya Kolisi, De Kock Steenkamp, Eben Etzebeth, Brok Harris, Tiaan Liebenberg, Steven Kitshoff.

Replacements: Deon Fourie, Frans Malherbe, Nick Koster, Nizaam Carr, Louis Schreuder, Burton Francis, JP du Plessis.

Referee: Steve Walsh
Assistant Ref 1:Angus Gardner
Assistant Ref 2:Rohan Hoffman
TMO:Steve Leszczynski

    A nice little Gio Aplon hat trick, and lots of Pietersen kicks will suit me fine!

  • Reds try. James Horwill. Stormers mess up a line out 5m from their own tryline. Threw it straight to Horwill, all he had to do is catch it and dive over. Harris converts the try.

    The Reds forwards played the ball on the ground, offside at the rucks and yet he penalises the Stormers. :roll:

  • @wpw (Comment 65) : And they’re just plain useless too. Skew lineouts, losing the ball near the stormers tryline, getting bullied in the rucks and mauls. Is the depth in Australia that bad that when the championship side of 2011 loses a number of players, they turn to rubbish.

  • Actually after watching the game – disappointed with Stormers attitude. You lead 17-3 and you kick for poles – instead of going for the try

    The Stormers have a reasonably “easy” run from here – but they need some bonus points
