Match six in the opening weekend of Super Rugby action sees the Stormers host the Hurricanes in the only non-derby match of the weekend. The Stormers will be keen to get their campaign off to a good start and stake a claim on that top spot in the SA conference.

Captained by Schalk Burger, and with an almost fully fit squad of players, field a really strong forward pack, with a good loose trio. The outside backs in de Villiers, Habana, van den Heever, Aplon and Pietersen will look to score the necessary tries to get that elusive bonus point, something we haven’t seen much of in opening weekend.

The Hurricanes are tipped by many to be the wooden spoonists in the New Zealand conference this season, with a mass player exodus seeing their star players running out for other franchises. They will want to show that they are still a strong team, and will give the Stormers as hard a time as they can.

The Stormers should simply be too strong for this Hurricanes outfit, and this match kicks off 17h05 SA time.

Stormers: 15. Johan Pietersen, 14. Gio Aplon, 13. Bryan Habana, 12. Jean de Villiers, 11. Gerhard van den Heever, 10. Gary Van Aswegen, 9. Dewaldt Duvenage, 8. Nick Koster, 7. Duane Vermeulen, 6. Schalk Burger (Captain), 5. Andries Bekker, 4. Eben Etzebeth, 3. Brok Harris, 2. Tiaan Liebenberg, 1. Steven Kitshoff

Replacements: 16. Siyabonga Ntubeni, 17. Frans Malherbe, 18. De Kock Steenkamp, 19. Siya Kolisi, 20. Louis Schreuder, 21. Burton Francis, 22. Marcel Brache

Hurricanes: 1. Tristan Moran ,2. Dane Coles,3. Ben May,4. Jeremy Thrush,5. Jason Eaton,6. Faifili Levave,7. Jack Lam,8. Victor Vito,9. Chris Eaton,10. Beauden Barrett,11. Alapati Leiua,12. Tim Bateman,13. Conrad Smith (c),14. Cory Jane,15. Andre Taylor

Replacements :16. Motu Matu’u,17. Jeffery Toomaga-Allen,18. James Broadhurst,19. Brad Shields,20. TJ Perenara,21. Daniel Kirkpatrick,22. Charlie Ngatai

    That reminds me, how nice it was to see a weekend of play when a line lifter doesn’t let the player he is holding do a 360 and has to catch them by the bands in their pans.

  • @Ludz (Comment 112) : Beau Barrett, not bad hey. He’s certainly added a few kgs since the end of last SR season.

    Broadhurst is another youngster to keep an eye out for in the months and years to come.

    Their lack of discipline didn’t help.
    3 cards and could have been more had the high tackle on Shadow been noticed, as well as the trip on Habana.

  • I’ve seen a lot of complaining from Kiwis that the cards were unfair and that the disallowed try should have been given. I personally disagree, any opinions?

  • Comment 135, posted at 25.02.12 22:44:06 by Leviathan Reply

     
  • @Leviathan (Comment 135) :

    I think the 1st yellow card was definitiely deserved as it was the same player who infringed twice, Moran I think. The second or third one was maybe a little harsh, but that said, Marius Jonker did warn them a few times about taking away the players legs and the Canes didnt have an answer in trying to stop that rolling maul. I think they missed a forward to really lay down the law and guide the younger ones, such as Andrew Hore and the inexperience really showed.

    I was really impressed with the physicality of Etzebeth and shows the value of playing a youngster next to a more experienced player who can keep him right. I was also impressed with Kitshoff, for such a young prop he has immense potential.

  • @Pat (Comment 136) :
    yeah, can’t believe Etsebeth hasn’t been given a chance until now. Also for all the talk of the cards, no-one seems to mention the try that the Stormers didn’t get a after Marius blew the whistle too quickly. Or the high tackle on Shadow that wasn’t punished.

    The Hurricanes played with a lot of heart, but they were really undisciplined. And yeah, their forward pack looked outclassed, even without Schalk on the field. Can’t wait for Bash to be back.

  • (e) Intentional knock or throw forward. A player must not intentionally knock the ball forward
    with hand or arm, nor throw forward.
    Penalty: Penalty Kick. A penalty try must be awarded if the offence prevents a try that
    would probably otherwise have been scored.

    He was off his feet and he deliberately hit the ball forward about 10m to prevent the Stormers from getting it. the Stormers were on attack, close to the try-line. Cynical foul play.

    Taking out support players at the line-out. Was warned.

    Tackling the maul from an off-side position.

    If the referees are really going to be more strict this year we will hear many more complaints from the Kiwis
