  • :shock: How can Genlednhuys have played for the Kings and now for the Stormers? Thought you couldn’t represent more than 1 side during a Super Tournament!

  • ChrisS looks as if Ross was part of the Kings super rugby squad but was released to play Vodacom cup rugby for EP Kings. So basically the Stormers now use Kings rejects.

  • @JD (Comment 6) : Okay, that makes sense. Wonder why they don’t use one of their own Vodacom Cup players.

  • Ja – in my haste, I neglected to add that Geldenhuys has no Super Rugby caps for either the Kings or the Cheetahs – only Vodacom Cup

  • Stormers might as well give everyone the day off. Send out the under 21′s and the rest have a braai.

  • Not sure about this team, think the Cheetahs going to kill them in the scrums. Cheetahs got a real chance to beat the Stormers.

  • Clayton(PJLD) the backs is not bad but I can’t see them get lots of good ball to play with.
