Super Rugby 2012: Stormers (19) v Sharks (26) F/T

It’s semi-final time at Newlands!

The Stormers have put together a truly superb campaign thus far, going undefeated in only two of their 16 league matches. They’ve not scored a lot of tries – or bonus points – but their structured approach to the game and rock-solid defence have meant that they didn’t really need to, with the boot of Peter Grant often proving decisive. They come up against one of the only teams who has actually beaten them this season, though – the Sharks.

John Plumtree’s men have been to hell and back several times already this season – losing five of their first eight games and looking dead at the competition’s halfway point. They recovered well after their first bye and were pushing hard for a home knock-out before disaster struck again, wit the team losing badly against the Lions. Yet another strong resurgence has seen them win three on the trot since then, including a great away win against the Reds last week.

Today will see the two teams slug it out for 80 minutes or more to decide who will face the Chiefs in next week’s final. Kick-off is at 17h05 in the Cape Town and Australia’s Steve Walsh will be the man to kick things off at that point.

Stormers: 15. Joe Pietersen, 14. Gio Aplon, 13. Juan de Jongh, 12. Jean de Villiers (Captain), 11. Bryan Habana, 10. Peter Grant, 9. Dewaldt Duvenage, 8. Deon Fourie, 7. Rynhardt Elstadt, 6. Siya Kolisi, 5. Andries Bekker, 4. Eben Etzebeth, 3. Brok Harris, 2. Tiaan Liebenberg, 1. Steven Kitshoff
Replacements: 16. Frans Malherbe, 17. Deon Carstens, 18. De Kock Steenkamp, 19. Don Armand, 20. Louis Schreuder, 21. Burton Francis, 22. Gerhard van den Heever

Sharks: 15. Riaan Viljoen, 14. Louis Ludik, 13. JP Pietersen, 12. Tim Whitehead, 11. Lwazi Mvovo, 10. Frederic Michalak, 9. Charl McLeod, 8. Ryan Kankowski, 7. Marcell Coetzee, 6. Keegan Daniel (Captain), 5. Anton Bresler, 4. Willem Alberts, 3. Jannie du Plessis, 2. Bismarck du Plessis, 1. Tendai Mtawarira, 0. Jean Deysel / Riaan Viljoen
Replacements: 16. Craig Burden, 17. Wiehahn Herbst, 18. Steven Sykes, 19. Jean Deysel, 20. Jacques Botes, 21. Meyer Bosman, 22. Odwa Ndungane

  • This is like a nightmare come true, the combo’s are working so well at the moment.
    When was the last time that Viljoen even played……this is just absolute madness.
    Is plum trying to lose this match for the Sharks?

    The backs fanned up with Fred at first receiver. He flicked it onto JP who made a killer step to break the line and go straight through.

  • @rekinek comment. Personally had visions of being screwed by Walsh again. Guy I was sitting with is an old provincial player and a few comments he made about Walsh’a officiating made sense. Example Jannie tackling and getting up immediate to play the ball, result penalty to Stormers. A few minutes later Fourie does the same thing and play on. Another example is he never blew once for stormers flying over the top and dealing the ball. Blowing Bossier for legit having the ball, and then saying not supporting his own weight.

    I’m seriously chuffed, Paul Dobson, Jan De Koning, Gavin Rich, Brendan Nel,.Bobby and Mathew, eat humble pie. Tony Johnston you called it right.

    Keep the injury updates on Jordaan, Alberts (think he took a knock) and Lambie rolling mate. WE WILL NEED THEM ALL.

    If we can field our best team (Jordaan 13 and Ludik 15) plus have Lambie coming off the bench it will be awesome…

    BTW does anyone know why Plum brought in Viljoen at the last minute??
