    Grant to boost Stormers

    Cape Town - Stormers flyhalf Peter Grant could return from Japan in time for their first Super Rugby match against the Bulls at Loftus Versfeld on February 22.

    "I could be back anywhere between the 5th and 25th of next month. So we'll just have to wait and see," the 28-year-old told Die Burger's website.

    Grant's availability will depend on how well the Kobe Kobelco Steelers (the Japanese team he currently plays for) performs in the next few weeks.

    He will therefore likely not be available for the Stormers' two warm-up games, against the Cheetahs on February 2 and Boland on February 9.

    Springbok flyhalf Elton Jantjies, who joined on loan from the Lions at the end of last year, will take the flyhalf reins for the warm-up games, with him and Grant expected to fight it out for the Stormers' No 10 jersey once the season proper starts.

    However, with a long season ahead (the Super Rugby final is scheduled for August 3) the duo will be rotated on a regular basis by coach Allister Coetzee.

    The Stormers won the South African conference title last year, but lost a home semi-final to the Sharks.
