Ah, come one boet. Next year is our year. Willemse and Jantjies will realise their potential, and with SP gone and a few injured players fit again, we just might have the backline we've always wanted.

I don't share your optimism. Fleck is still hanging around. We have some promising midfield talent coming through and then if Dan duP is healthy that helps but it looks as though we're one injury away from having SP involved again somehow.

Jantjies and Willemse (if he's allowed to settle at 10) is definitely something I'm looking forward to but they can't do it on their own.

Kenya have appointed New Zealander Paul Feeney as the national technical director of rugby to oversee all forms of the game in the country.

A former Auckland and South African Stormers coach, Feeney, who won the 2005 Sevens World Cup with Fiji, will head the Kenya Sevens programme, as well as supporting the XVs and the women’s Lionesses teams in areas of skills and defence.

Not sure. Was there for that Rassie thing 2 years ago and a party shortly after. Not somewhere I choose to go. Not an old boys club kind of guy.

To be fair, with the current form of DDA, he might be a bit of a loss too.

What are our lock stocks like for 2020? When Etsebeth got injured, we had no-one who could dominate a lineout or maul. :(

JD Schickerling, Chris van Zyl, Salmaat Roemat, Neethling Fouche, Ernst van Rhyn and PsdT if needed. The Stormers will have a decent pack,
