BC – What style of rugby do you prefer to play?

KC – I prefer a running style of play.

BC – What was Allister Coetzee’s lasting impression on you and more importantly the team?

KC – You have to enjoy yourself when playing rugby and to know the smaller details!

BC – The most difficult aspect of being a professional rugby player?

KC – I’d say the perceptions people have of you and having a social life outside of rugby

BC – Tell us about life in Cape Town?

KC – Life in Cape Town is great. Everything is about a 30 minute drive away and there is always something to do. Great people, weather and sights. I’d say I love the people of Cape Town the most and have had the pleasure of building up such a close and special group of friends here.

BC – Toughest opponents?

KC – It’s tough to pick one, but the Lions in this year’s Super Rugby at Newlands were a particularly tough game. If I had to pick one player, i would pick the wing from the Highlanders – Waisake Naholo!

BC – Rugby hero growing up?

KC – This would definitely have to be, Daniel Carter!

BC – The Currie Cup is on the horizon. What are you looking to achieve?

KC – Hoping to play a good brand of rugby, get some game time and get back to my best.

BC – What do you think is the reason the Stormers always come short in the Super Rugby?

KC – I don’t think there is one particular reason but I think more of a rotational system should be used in the beginning of the campaign and pick your best XV for the last 5 games for momentum for the playoffs

BC – Favourite movie?

KC – Shawshank Redemption

BC – Most memorable match?

KC – Vodacom cup game when I scored a hatrick and winning at Loftus for the first time in 5 years! Such a proud moment.

  1. Kurt – Thanks for the interview. You are now a member of a very esteemed club.
    “Interviewed by The….BC” can now go on your LinkedIn account.

    I think Kurt is far more Handy Pollard-esque than “The Greek”.
    I wish Kurt Coleman even more success going forward!

  2. Have a very respect for Coleman, thought his form this season was due to AC picking the Greek every game..one need to play more often than not to keep form or to get better which AC did not give him. Cannot wait for the Greek to leave so that Coleman can take the position and show us how great he really is….
