STORMERS UNCHANGED - Grant still benched!
March 07, 2013, 05:33:15

15. Joe Pietersen,14. Gio Aplon,13. Jean de Villiers (captain),12. Damian de Allende,11. Bryan Habana,10. Elton Jantjies,9. Nic Groom,8. Duane Vermeulen,7. Rynhardt Elstadt,6. Siya Kolisi,5. Andries Bekker,4. De Kock Steenkamp,3. Frans Malherbe,2. Deon Fourie,1. Steven Kitshoff

Replacements:16. Tiaan Liebenberg,17. Pat Cilliers,18. Don Armand,19. Nizaam Carr,20. Dewaldt Duvenage,21. Peter Grant,22. Gerhard van den Heever

 

Madness. Tiaan Liebenberg is fit to play. Take that 2 jersey from Fourie very quickly and hand him the 6. Nizaam Carr. Nothing to the mans game. Surely they have better. Until then Kolisi to wear 19. Duvenage should start at 9 to bring some composure back the the half back pairing with Grant at 10.

Jantjies not in match day 22. Beeno, surely there is some talent withing Maties and UCT that could be called upon? Is there no "bigger" fullbacks there? Pietersen hitting the line and offloading to Aplon is hardly scary. Get Van Den Heever on the park in place of Aplon.

 

Coetzee should have gone:

15 Pietersen

14 De Allende

13 Habana

12 De Villiers

11 Van Den Heever

10 Grant

9 Duvenage

 

Its up to you guys which way you would have Habana or De Allende but I feel the closer that man is to the ball, the better Stormers will play. Also JDV is way more effective at 12 and Stormers need him playing well to win this one. Chiefs like to throw the ball around and in JDV and Habana you have two great defenders that will look to intercept if you get too cocky.

 

De Allende on the wing to add a bit of bulk out wide. Also to drop back and carry the ball up strongly. Stormers do not want to be kicking possesion back to Chiefs or exposing Aplon and Pietersens running game. 1 small bloke is enough, 2 is asking for kak in the back three. Keep the ball in hand with Fourie at 6 and you will retain it. He is that energetic and that passionate. Real good player completely wasted at 2. Coetzee you are fucking up this mans chance at Bok colours playing him at 2!!! Wake up man!!

 

Unfortunately though, we will again be exposed to Jantjies nonsense. Its like taking a boat out in Sea Point, cutting his arms off and throwing him in..You watch him drown before a shark knocks him.

Ignorance definitely not restricted here - the second poster is even more ignorant.  His protege is attacked and he says nothing in defence.  Or are you now deserting Earl Silky Hands Jantjies for good?

There Saff goes again..Statements with nothing to back it up! Tell us your reasons you think Habana at 13 is worth that reaction dumb fuck? You keep forgetting this is a blog. We need reasons and thoughts to start a debate!

 

As I said, Habana or De Allende, switch them which ever way you want but my call is that JDV is best at 12. He has been ineffective at 13 much like Fourie at 2. Put him where he is going to be best. That is 12. I want Habana closer to the ball, running of Jean and keeping an eye on Nanai-Williams. Is that too hard to understand.

Well Stringbean, for a start Habana has been tried at 13 a few times and was a complete and utter flop.

 

The guy just does not have the touch and rugby nous of a centre.

 

But your call for Habana at 13 just serves to confirm your rugby ignorance. How about the Stormers play Schalk at 13, I seriously think that would work - what are your thoughts on that?

 Interesting Dave..You may be onto something here. I reckon Schalk at 13 would do well. Certainly cant do worse than JJ at 13 and Frans Venter on the wing and Jantjies at 10 for the Boks..Bwahahaha
