Timo Swiel on bench? Here we go Stormers!
April 8, 2013 in Uncategorized
Elton Jantjies has not made it! Do I blame him solely for the Stormers position on the log? No, but we are missing Peter Grant and Jantjies is overrated. The Stormers are in that position because they have a tough draw, it was obvious from the start.
I’m not even going to use injuries to Schalk Burger, Juan de Jongh and Eben Etsebeth etc as excuses. The Stormers have enough depth to over come that. Look at how great the Cheetahs are performing. They are exciting and play with much more freedom than any other side. Will they make the play-offs? I still have my doubts.
Anyhow, what really excites me is the possible inclusion of Timo Swiel on the Stormers becnch. Finally! He is in the same class as Johan Goosen. Take Goosen and mix him with Michael du Plessis or Stephen Larkham…that’s how highly I rate this young man. It annoys me that Allister Coetzee didn’t involve him from the start. In Australia or New Zealand he would have played Super15 last year already.
The Stormers will have to beat the Sharks this weekend. Can they? For sure.
Put your Balls on the Guillotine! (my picks in bold)
Highlanders vs Brumbies
Chiefs vs Reds
Blues vs Hurricanes
Rebels vs Kings
Force vs Crusaders
Stormers vs Sharks
Bulls vs Cheetahs
