Smit lauds 'angry' Stormers

2012-04-07 14:22

Cape Town – Prominent South African rugby personalities have interrupted their Easter break to hail, via Twitter, the Stormers’ triumph over the Highlanders in their first Super Rugby tour match on Saturday.

The Capetonians put aside the effects of their gruelling travel to Dunedin and last week’s exertions against the Bulls to record a 21-6 victory in Dunedin, after a much-touted meeting of the best-performing sides in the South African and New Zealand conferences respectively.

With six wins from six, the Stormers remain the only unbeaten team in the competition.

Former Springbok captain and Sharks favourite John Smit enthused: “Great performance & victory by the Stormers; they are playing some good rugga and that pack looks nice and angry! Well done @BryanHabana & co.”

Meanwhile another former Bok leader and also once captain of the Stormers, Bob Skinstad, tweeted: “Sjoe -- @joepietersen & @BryanHabana were superstars. Stormers defended like warriors. Very proud.”

And retired Bok wing and Lions stalwart Ashwin Willemse, now a regular SuperSport critic, said (in a tweet to Bok loose forward legend Rob Louw): “Great performance by your surf partner @joepietersen. Well done Stormers. Congrats to Toetie (coach Allister Coetzee) and his coaching staff.”

      And Tokolos thinks he will be a "has been" at 25 if he stay with the Stormers.

      Tokolos - 2012-04-08 03:34

      Tokolos is Tokolos. My ma het my so gedoop. Ek het my pas boekie net nou die dag gekry. Ek kan vir oom wys. Ek is 'n burger van die Republiek van Pretoria en my naam is TOKOLOS. Groetnis

      Terence - 2012-04-08 10:13

      I think you are wrong about tokolos being Bulldozer. If I remember corectly, he never used to insult any team but the Stormers. He insulted the Lions on their article. I think Saffa is spot on.

      Tokolos - 2012-04-08 10:15

      Jislaaik oom Isak TOKOLOS het nog altyd gedink jy is baie slim. Nou weet ek nie meer nie. Ek se dan Tokolos is my naam. Stormers Groete, TOKOLOS

      Lion - 2012-04-08 19:13

      Sakkie... Wie is die Tokolos karakter? Hy is nuut op die blogs hier en skielik is die klipspringer oral.

      Tokolos - 2012-04-09 07:27

      Oom Isak Hoeveel keer moet Tokolos nog vir oom se ek is Tokolos. Tokolos se naam is eitlik Tokkie maar Tokolos is van klein af Tokolos genoem. Tokolos het op 'n plaas grootgeword en saam met die ander klein kinders gespeel. Tokolos was baie stout toe Tokolos klein was en hulle het vir Tokolos die naam Tokolos gegee toentertyd al. Koning Leeu Tokolos spring nie op klippe nie. Sy ma het hom kleintyd baie teen die kop geklap as hy sulke goed aanvang. Tokolos rook pyp. Dis al. Beste rugby groete, TOKOLOS

    Boys job well done jst take a rest still long way to go am behind you all the way

  • Johan - 2012-04-07 16:12

    @Saffa - Ons kan maar net hoop jy sny nie jou polse voor die einde van die jaar nie want Stormers rugby gaan jou nog baie jare ongelukkig maak!!!! Alle Suid Afrikaanse Ondersteuners is gatvol vir die Snert wat jy hier kwytraak, jy weet absoluut niks van rugby af nie en jy is die swakste verloorder ooit!!! Jammer jy ondersteun die Bulls want jy smeer hulle naam deur die modder....Sterkte dit is seker nie lekker om so eensaam te wees dat jy hier so moet kom aandag soek nie!

      Saffa - 2012-04-07 16:44

      Hy kan nie hiersonde nie. Feit. Ek is bly hy hang nog hier rond....want elke Stormers oorwinning raak vir ons lekkerder, en vir hom al hoe k#kker. And you can't buy that on Gumtree :) Internet acces from Canadian Telecoms - $50-00 Time spent here vs billable surgical hours lost - $20000000000 The Stormers remaining unbeaten and suffocating him in bile - priceless.......

    What a team, what a performance -- from a Shark supporter

  • Rinus - 2012-04-07 16:34

    Goed gedoen Stormers, julle het my stil gespeel. Veral Pietersen en Habana. Smit, bly jy eerder stil van daai kant af - jy moes al lankal daar gewees het en nooit vir die Bokke gespeel het in die RWC nie!

      jbcloete - 2012-04-07 20:36

      What a stupid dumb ass you are

      Rinus - 2012-04-07 22:19

      Well done jb, spelled each one of the words right. I'm sure it took at least 2 hours research....

      david.baker.sa - 2012-04-08 10:52

      So Smit congratulates the Stormers on Twitter & still you find cause to criticise him? Your one eyed hatred of a former Bok captain makes you a small man

  • Fanie - 2012-04-07 17:23

    Bloody well done boys!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Lion - 2012-04-07 17:25

    Geluk aan die Stormers. Wel gedaan Sakkie. Jy loop seker breebors vandag ne. Geniet dit. GO BULLE!!! Eet daai Crusaders!!!

  • franklin.coetzee - 2012-04-07 20:00

    Tokkelos,watte rugby kyk jy dan?Stop being eenogig ou bra your brains might just pop. I bet you are a draadsitter shouting for the New Zealand teams against the Great Stormers.Kyk agter jou,no wonder you call yourself tokkelos,always inthe dark.

      Tokolos - 2012-04-08 03:59

      Aweh Franklin my china. Dis so lekker as iemand iemand vir Tokolos sy "bra" noem. Dit laat hom terugverlang na sy gangster dae daar op die Cape flats. Hy mis dit nogal baie. Is jy nog aan die gang daar? Het jy nog daai GTI golf met die "gedropte" suspension met die oversized mags en die sound wat so lekker pomp? Jissie Tokolos het darem daai wiele gesmaak my bra. Die Tokolos het net SABC en hy kan nie die rugga lekker kokkenotch nie my bra. Tokolos kom lees maar wat die ander hier tune dan gooi hy ook maar sy 5 cents worth so tussenin. Jy weet mos hoe maak julle Stormer outjies. Ek doen dieselfde my biebop. Anyway my china, Tokolos kan nie hier sit en chit chat nie. Hy het nog baie comments om te gaan gooi op ander blogs want die mense wag daarvoor. Tokolos kan nie sy suppoters laat wag nie my bra. Tokolos will check you on the grapevine my bru. Cheers my lanie. Aweh!

  • Raymond - 2012-04-07 21:41

    Happy that my STORMERS won they were worth another two tries, and a Lekker win for our Blou Bulle !!!

  • andre.ernstzen - 2012-04-08 11:32

    There seems to be a lot more hype and excitement in the SA rugby community when the Stormers do well

  • Paul - 2012-04-08 11:46

    well done to them and the bulls. go on, win it!

  • Goose - 2012-04-08 14:03

  • George - 2012-04-09 09:28
