Super 14: Stormers shopping in Xmas sales?

The Stormers seem intent on keeping their fans on a knife-edge this season!

It is being reported that Stormers Head Coach, Kobus van der Merwe is in the market for another prop.

This follows the news that Neil Fullard might miss the entire Super 14 with a pinched nerve in his neck. Should Fullard not respond to treatment he will almost certainly have to go under the surgeon's knife, meaning a long absence from rugby.

The Stormers currently have Eddie Andrews, JD Moller, Attie Winter and Doug Wheatley but would ideally like to go into S14 with 5 props.

Are they rueing the day they allowed Pat Barnard to head to England?

In other news, Van der Merwe has confirmed that Naas Olivier enjoyed his first day out at Stormers practise.

"Naas looked good. His passing skills are excellent and he communicates very well," said Van der Merwe.

Olivier himself said that he was, "excited and stressed".

"It's been nice and it's a great bunch of guys. I felt a little stressed out when I arrived, but they helped me to settle in quickly."

It has the potential to be a huge season for the 23 year old youngster.

Information source:
must be honest.

i have seen very little of this naas guy.
o ja.

and we have a bloody problem in the front row even with all the props fit and ready to go!!!

cant see why it is suddenly highlighted now?

Pat Barnard, Faan Rautenbach, Cobus - methinks it's not lekker to play for Province anymore...

Naas Olivier is as green as they come.

He's a promising young flyhalf drafted from the Leopards.

He had a few decent games for the Leopards in a disappointing team with Jonothan Mokuena, but both are VERY young and inexperienced at CC level, nevermind at S14 or international. This poor oukie will be understudy to Peter Grant.

For his sake I hope he doesn't get game time.

i know grant played for a bigger union in 2005 and against tougher opposition effectively - but don't you reckon grant is as green as naas perhaps.

before last year, i never heard of this oke? (grant)
