:lol:

This year's flyhalves:
Kurt Coleman -> Kings
Jean-Luc du Plessis - Injured
Robert du Preez -> Sharks
Brandon Thomson - UK
Damian Willemse

So the Stormers recruited the Bulls 5th/6th choice flyhalf

You don't have a flyhalf and your team is performing fairly well.

Elton? He wears a 10 on his back and he stands between the scrumhalf and the inside centre, but he certainly is not a flyhalf boet.

The Stormers have confirmed the signing of former Springbok and Bulls centre JJ Engelbrecht ahead of the 2018 season.

Engelbrecht will make his return to Cape Town – where he played his junior rugby – once he has concluded his commitments with Japanese side Toyota Industries Shuttles, while the Stormers have also signed young flyhalf Joshua Stander and prop Neethling Fouche from the Bulls.


Lol

The only thing make locally is their jersey

As kak of a signing that is :thumbdown: ...where was he before the Bulls?

If Jean-Luc du Plessis was sure of making a comeback from his injury next year the situation at flyhalf for WP wouldn’t be so problematic, but there are fears that the groin problems that have led to a series of operations may prevent the young son of former Bok wing Carel from ever playing again.

Point is the "you don't get your players locally" argument is false. He started with us. ;)

Still, kak signing. Him and Rhule both.

I remember when JJ and Johann Sadie took the money and ran to the Bulls. They expected province to match the salaries which would have given them more money than the senior players ( they were both juniors at the time) and province had to say no for team unity. Many of us predicted they would not do well in the Bull environment, which turned out to be true.

JJ had raw talent at the time and much like Handre Pollard (and many other youngsters) they thought they had already made it when in fact they were still at the early stages of learning the game. If he has matured I predict we will make a star of him.

I said he would be a bok....much to the mirth of yankeedoodledee....when he became a bok it infuriated him so much he had nothing good to say about him...

:lol: :lol: :lol:

I fully expect yankeedoodledee to start punting him for the Springboks in a few monts time....

Cape Town - The Stormers have secured a loan deal with Griquas flyhalf George Whitehead.

READ: Stormers secure services of Bulls duo

WP Rugby confirmed the agreement to Netwerk24 on Wednesday after the player joined the Stormers’ pre-season training squad.

The Cape franchise’s flyhalf stocks look decidedly thin following the departure of Robert du Preez to the Sharks.

It’s uncertain when Jean-Luc du Plessis, who underwent a hip operation last year, will regain full fitness which leaves only Damian Willemse and Joshua Stander as flyhalves in the squad.

The 24-year-old Stander, who had represented the Bulls since 2013, was signed late last year.

Whitehead, 28, has spent time at the Cheetahs, Kings and Griffons before joining Griquas in 2017.

The Stormers open their 2018 Super Rugby campaign at home against the Jaguares on Saturday, February 17.

If social media reports are to be believed, Springbok lock Eben Etzebeth will spend several months on the sidelines.

There was no confirmation from the Stormers camp, but twitter was abuzz on Friday with suggestions that the second row forward was "probably out for the whole season".

With Eben out for probably the whole of SR JD Shickerling has a massive opportunity to push for higher honours.


Etzebeth was injured on the Boks' year-end tour and forced off the field just before half-time in the 22-24 loss to Wales in Cardiff on December 2.

The Bok medical staff confirmed at the time that he would "see a specialist" in Cape Town to further examine his shoulder and back injuries.

Yes. Eben out until May apparently. That's a huge loss for us. JD will have to step up big time. When is Duane joining us again?
