Bulls? Welcome to the fold, young man.

Well as long as they cut down on the Steve Stofseyer songs I'll be supporting them.
Thanks

For the 1st time i could see what the hype about Willemse was all about. He looks excellent with the ball in hand with an eye for a gap, his tackling has improved since last year and he kicked competently.

Bongi out

Quote:
Stormers coach Robbie Fleck confirmed that Mbonambi suffered a burst appendix and underwent emergency surgery on Friday.

"He is out of the tour," Fleck said in the post-match reaction, after the hard-earned win over the South American visitors.

Apart from the charge down in front of the posts :blush:

The kid's got talent but is still a bit green. Looking forward to a good season from him nonetheless.

I wouldn't pay to go to a stinking shithole like Boolands to watch such dour rugby.

Very scrappy match. Early season but not looking like " a side to watch ". When Eben returns it will probably change

The Jaguares remain their own worst enemies giving away too many penalties and missing tackles.

Needs more variety. That constant “step inside off the right foot “ is going to see him clattered by some Kiwi loosies.

A few impressions:
Ramone Samuals is not good enough for this level.
Willemse is a bit hot and cold, but a great threat in attack. Just give him a kopklap for the charge down :x
Our backline broke the line with ease, but then struggled to convert.

Willemse had a great game. Hot and cold? The charge down was the only "cold" moment IMO.

How Samuels had his contract renewed is beyond me. He is a club player at best. Bongi's medical emergency is a big blow to the Stormers. Everyone is going to target our lineouts. Those initial bad throws and the yellow card were pivitol moments and he could have lost us the game. Why are we struggling to produce decent hookers?

Willemse was brilliant. I also liked the option of him standing at outside centre at times when we were exiting in our 25. He kept the opposition defenders honest and created a lot more space out wide. I thought Senatla was also good. We need to sort out the defense on high kicks. Maybe shift Damian or EW to wing on defence.

One of Willemse's strengths is his running with the ball in both hands. Keeps the defenders guessing.

It's mind-boggling that a youngster barely out of school is already better than a seasoned veteran like Elton Jantjies.

I noticed that most of the Stormers backline were doing this. Even DDA to score his try. Perhaps it's something they've all worked on off season, and very good to see.

Unlike your sorry lot, Bismarck and Jannie were both consummate professionals and selected on merit every time.

That Samuels fella as way out of his league. But if you want to keep playing him because of brotherly love, then go ahead :lol:

He still need a few years to develop at senior level.

Jannie was pretty kak at the start of his career. Many looseheads broke him at the start of his career.
