S15 Game 53 – Stormers (6) vs Reds (19) F/T

The Stormers are back at Newlands and face a rampant Reds team fresh from their win over the Lions last weekend. The Stormers themselves are fresh from an away win and with their winning streak still intact.

The Stormers have a team similar to the one that beat the Sharks in Durban, with their potent lock combination prime to ruin any Reds lineout plans. The backline will be hoping for a dry match at Newlands so that they can get a bit more ball.

The Reds are still a great team and Quade Cooper can turn any game into a free scoring, run-away victory for his team, but I suspect the Stormers will be too strong for them. The Stormers should win this encounter by 15 points.

Stormers: 15. Gio Aplon, 14. Danie Poolman, 13. Jaque Fourie, 12. Jean de Villiers, 11. Bryan Habana, 10. Peter Grant, 9. Dewaldt Duvenage, 8. Duane Vermeulen, 7. Francois Louw, 6. Schalk Burger (Captain), 5. Andries Bekker, 4. Rynhardt Elstadt, 3. Brok Harris, 2. Deon Fourie, 1. Wicus Blaauw
Subs: 16. Ethienne Reynecke, 17. CJ van der Linde, 18. De Kock Steenkamp, 19. Nick Koster, 20. Ricky Januarie, 21. Gary Van Aswegen, 22. Juan de Jongh

Reds: 15. Luke Morahan, 14. Rod Davies, 13. Anthony Faingaa, 12. Mike Harris, 11. Digby Ioane, 10. Quade Cooper, 9. Will Genia, 8. Scott Higginbotham, 7. Beau Robinson, 6. Radike Samo, 5. James Horwill (Captain), 4. Rob Simmons, 3. James Slipper, 2. James Hanson, 1. Ben Daley
Subs: 16. Saia Faingaa, 17. Guy Shepherdson, 18. Adam Wallace-Harrison, 19. Leroy Houston, 20. Liam Gill, 21. Ian Prior, 22. Will Chambers
