Super 14: Moaner backs his flyers
Stormers coach Kobus van der Merwe believes that his two young Boland flyers might just hold the key to the Stormers' success.
Speaking to Herbert Pretorius of Die Burger, Van der Merwe said: "We've seen in the Super 12 season that players often make a huge impact in their first season. Examples are Daniel Carter and Aaron Mauger. The reason is that the opposing teams don't know them and don't know what to expect. That certainty is a big advantage."
Both Nokwe and Benjamin looked impressive in the game against the Spears, but are still untested at this level. Nokwe is being tipped as the fastest outside back in South Africa, with Benjamin literally biting at his heals.
If the Stormers' tight five could supply these two guys with some decent ball and if the distribution in the rest of the backline is on par, we might just see these two players lightning up the competition.
Benjamin still looks a bit light to me but lets se what happens,STOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOORRRRMEEERRRRRSSSSSSSSSSS
Oh please, Flyers out wide won't help, cos they're gonna have to defend all the time. You don't win games without ball. Golden rule of rugga.Post a Comment
