    Stormers: No Bulls favours

    2013-07-08 07:37
    Cape Town - The Stormers have no intention of doing their countrymen, the Bulls, any favours in their upcoming Super Rugby clash at Newlands.

    The Bulls are currently top of the Super Rugby table, but could go into Saturday's final league match of the season needing a win to cement top spot.

    The Chiefs and the Brumbies could still move above the Pretoria team if they win their respective matches against the Blues in Auckland and Force in Perth.

    The Bulls would then need a victory in Cape Town to finish top, but Stormers coach Allister Coetzee was quick to point out how important a win for his side would be.

    "We don’t need any motivation for this match. It's North against South, it's in Cape Town and there are some of our players who want to catch the eye of the Springbok selectors," Coetzee told Die Burger's website.

    The Stormers beat the Kings 24-12 in Port Elizabeth on Saturday and Coetzee said they will be out to win over their fans, who are disappointed after an indifferent season which has seen them miss out on a spot in the playoffs for the first time since 2009.

    "We're playing to gain back respect for the jersey. For us it's about at least finishing strong in the competition and we've now won four games on the trot. We know we slipped up during the season, but now we want to finish with a bang," said Coetzee.

    Saturday's clash kicks off at 19:10.
