Team for the Stormers


Written by Henk Terblanche (Bokhoring)

Posted in :Rainbow Cup on 20 May 2021 at 16:23

Sikhumbuzo Notshe has been ruled out for a few months due to a ruptured patella tendon, so the loose trio has been rejigged with Venter moving to 8 and Bholi coming in at 7. Good to see JJ van der Mescht back in the starting lineup.

Still no sign of Makazole Mapimpi, but Marius Louw replaces Jeremy Ward who drops out completely.

Hopefully we will see 80 minutes of effort from the Sharks, after last week schooling by the Bulls.

  • Bosch seems to be undroppable, and I’m less convinced of Am’s captaincy with each passing week.

  • Sharks needs someone to seriously step up at 3, 7 and 12! If not the Sharks will conti to struggle against top sides with good forwards!

  • Sharks have not kicked from the base of the ruck yet, pass back to Bosch to kick. I don’t know what advantage its getting them.

  • And the same kak we were doing against the bulls comes to the fore, our coaches are fucking retarded trying the same shit week in and our expecting different results. No guts on defense and silly errors. Stormers lead 12-20 36th minute

  • Malherbe just topples over every scrum and now all of a sudden he wins the penalty. Scrums in the entire rugby world have become a lottery

  • And we happily just kick it out for halftime, trailing by 2. Am has been a stalwart for the sharks but not a captain, it’s negatively affecting his performance amd brings nothing to the players in the form of leadership

  • Stormers too easily putting 9 and 10 under pressure. Surely that’s fixable? Speaking of 10, I can’t exactly put my finger on it, but Bosch seems a little underwhelming…still.

  • @jdolivier (Comment 30) : He’s not putting his hand up for recognition as a must-have for the Springboks. So, Libbok would probably at least be more motivated. And he takes on the defense much better than Bosch.

  • @SeanJeff (Comment 91) : Thank goodness.

    I am tired of this long extended Currie Cup that started last year. Probably more so because you have to sit through long periods of “tjommel” rugby waiting for the Sharks to put together a bit of decent rugby.

    I am really looking forward to the BI Lions series
