Kurt Coleman was one of the players that injected the new style of play with the Stormers last year after there Australasian tour. He has always been a flyhalf that enjoy attacking the game-line and putting his back-line away.
Benedict had a chat with the WP and Stormers number 10….
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.
