    Coetzee slams 'tour from hell'

    Cape Town - The Stormers will lodge a formal protest to SANZAR after receiving a ‘crazy’ provisional fixture list for the 2014 Super Rugby season.

    Speaking to TimesLive’s website, Stormers coach Allister Coetzee expressed unhappiness at receiving the short end of the straw in the 2014 fixture draw.

    "Our fixture list was tough and that's one of the lessons we have had to take on board - how to deal with it," Coetzee said.

    "I've seen a provisional fixture list for next season and on tour we have the Crusaders, Chiefs, Brumbies and Reds, which is crazy. We're definitely going to lodge a complaint about it."

    The Crusaders, Chiefs, Brumbies and Reds were the top finishing New Zealand and Australian teams in the current 2013 Super Rugby season.

    It is not the first time the Stormers have been dissatisfied over their fixtures: this year they were left fuming after having to face the Bulls and Sharks away, followed by home games against the Chiefs, Brumbies and Crusaders to begin this year's Super Rugby season.

    The Stormers finished this season in seventh place, after "missing" out on playing the Highlanders and Force.

    SANZAR's South African regional tournament director Johan Botes said that it was unlikely that the fixtures would be altered.

    SANZAR have not yet released provisional fixtures for the 2014 season to the public, and at this stage it's unclear when they will do so.
