Stormers will have to wait for Tony Brown

Tony Brown’s team in Japan, the Sanyo Wild Knights have made it through to the final of the All-Japan National Championships on Sunday 16 March. They beat Toyota Verblitz in a one point victory (25-24) in Osaka and will now go on to will face Suntory Sungoliath in the final.

Tony Brown and Epi Taione are set to play Vodacom Super 14 rugby this year for the Vodacom Stormers and Sharks respectively. Both scored tries for Sanyo on Saturday, ensuring their season lasts one more week.

This means that the former All Black flyhalf will only join the Vodacom Stormers for their third match on tour, when they face the Blues in Auckland in two weeks time.

The experienced player-coach is looking forward to the opportunity to learn from Vodacom Stormers coach Rassie Erasmus.

“One of the reasons why I am joining the Stormers is to learn from Rassie as a coach,” he said in an interview with Stephen Nell from Die Burger.

“My role with the Stormers will be very similar to my role with the Sharks a few seasons ago. I want to help the team and assist the players with their performances where I can,” he commented in Die Burger. “I really enjoy working with younger players and want to give as much input as I possibly can.”

Tony Brown also has a lot of praise for incumbent Peter Grant. “I’ve always held him in high regard and I think he is a good player. I’m looking forward to meeting him, to have a chat over a beer or two.”

    Just as well this site is called Sharksworld!

    At least Tione gets a mention in the arti. Can he play wing too? Seems he’ll be relegated to VC duty if all continues as is. Botes, Kankovski, Daniel, AJ, and who’s the other you lad that made such an impact the other time?
    Also have Pienaar/Kockott, Terblance/Ndungane and Adi on the bench…so where WILL he slot in if there are no injuries?

  • I am still here, and Alexanderbaai is just a Orange river width from NamBoer’s Suidwes.

    Grant had a great game and will be needed against the Chiefs with some big defense. Altho he just may unsettle Donald Duck!

  • Watch just yanking the collective Tjarkies’ chains hey, no malice intended!

    I did notice the first Tione/Brown thread, was only joking about the headline. Actually it not that farfetched, considering the depth the Tjarks have. Hence my blab about it – sorry Feeshy if I touched nerve hey!

    Deysel is the one I was refering too yes, thanks KSA.

    don’t worry i have those same concerns. Even if Taione does play off the bench it would have to be at the expense of Deysel and THAT is not right.

    When DM bought Taione I am sure he had no idea his loossies were going to raise their hands the way they did.

  • we just need to keep out eyes on the ball, is all. We’ve done a lot of good work now, but a silly slip up in either of the two easier games coming up will undo so much of that

  • one play at a time, one game at a time, and the boys should do it

  • Comment 36, posted at 10.03.08 21:52:43 by spykerbaard Reply

  • if we are lucky with injuries and the bounce of the ball on tour, we could end up doing even better than last year (in terms of log points)
