Stormers flyhalf troubles?
January 29, 2013 in Uncategorized
Firstly (like Blion said) my condolences to the Jantjies family for the tragedy. May he rest in peace.
Allister Coetzee rightfully gave Elton an indefinite break from rugby for the foreseeable future. Elton will definitively miss the two warm-up games and the situation will be “taken from there”.
With Peter Grant still in Japan and could be arriving anytime between 5 Feb to 25 Feb depending on how his team progress. If history is anything to go by he will probably be back either in the week leading up to the Bulls game or there after. So chances are good he will definitively miss the two warm-up games and if he is back by the 22nd he normally starts the season from the bench because of the travel fatigue ect.
With the other flyhalves on the Stormers book being van Aswegen and Coleman. Gary is still injured (isn’t he always?) and that only leaves Coleman and maybe Duvehage who has helped out before.
Whatever happens from here on in the Stormers will either field their 4th best FH (or Scrunhalf); a combination that has never played together or one that has last played together in SR 2012. Not ideal if you are AC.
