Match Report – Reds down Stormers


The Reds was the better of the two teams in what was a really poor game of rugby on Friday when they beat the Stormers 24-12

The game just did not want to get going with both teams trying to play with ball in hand but hands were letting them down.

The Stormers had most of the opportunities in the first 26 minutes but struggled to make anything off it.

They had two tries disallowed in that period. The first one was a kick ahead and Willemse just could not dot it down before the ball went over the dead-ball line and the second Petersen just had a foot out as he went over in the corner.

The quality of rugby was just poor form both sides in all aspects.

The rest of the half showed no change with neither one of the two teams stepping up.

Kolisi was send off for ten minutes with a yellow card for just to many penalties at ruck time as they went into the break.

The Reds used the advantage of the extra man well and score two quick tries at the start of the second half to take a 14-0 lead.

With the return of Kolisi after his ten minutes Van Dyk went over for the Stormers first try.

With the score at 14-7 both teams went back to the poor quality they showed in the first half until Tate McDermott got over for the Reds third try and a lead of 21-7 with 10 to go.

The Stormers did manage another try at the end through De Allende but it was simply just not good enough.

SP Marais summed it up when he missed another easy conversion at the end of the game.

Next week they play the inform Rebels and that now looks like another loss for the Stormers.

  1. Embarrassing result – but no surprise given the consistent decline the last 2 years. One has to feel for Fleck, as he did not appoint himself (and he was looking forward to learn a lot from Eddy). But the whole coaching and Admin team – as well as the “leadership” on the field – smells of bankruptcy. Good luck trying to get people in the stands for your remaining home games.

  2. I do feel for Fleck, I feel I would like to get him in the street and more the living shit out of him.

    He maybe did not pick him, but he could have said no, and his inability to pick a team is his biggest problem.

    He is by best a VC coach If WP want not to crash out with further embarrassment, put Dobson now in charge and send Fleck to CC or something but keep him the fuck away from the Stormers and selections

  3. Lmao, they need a change. Fleck a good clever centre but these results are crap.

    I reckon Willemse and maybe Jantjies should be starting for Boks. Willemse is a beast on defence and the most attacking flyhslf we have. Pollard is a v good safe flyhslf but give Willemse that exposure and you looking at a star.
