Stormers don't play as a team

I love rugby and the thing is I can't remember any win my team got when we didn't played as a team! This is the biggest problem the stormers camp have. They are sure as hell not playing as a team together in 2013. Look what happened agaisnt the Brumbies last week. The Stormers recorded I think the most spectacular win since last year and the thing that standed out the most was that they were playing as a team together. Agaisnt the Crusaders I didn't saw that brothership at all, but don't take away the fact that the men from Christchurch is a very good side. In the lineout aspect of the game the Stormers were dreadfull losing about 7 to 9 of their own lineouts. I think the biggest problem started when the stormers couldn't cause trouble with the loose ball so Andries tried to set the backs of with a quick ball from the lineout calling long throw ins. It was absolutely the worst the decision he could make. The wind was blowing like we are used to in Cape Town and just for that reason throw the ball in front! Its much safer. I as a backline player know that. Then the other thing is we all know Fourie isn't the best lineout thrower their is, but I don't blame him. I'm not even sure if he knows what position is his first choice position anymore. So I don't think we can assume that poor Deon were the problem in the lineouts. The Stormers just have to pick up that team spirit a team need even when they are losing and start building on that.
