    Stormers confirm tour party

    2013-04-19 11:28
    Cape Town - Stormers coach Allister Coetzee has announced a 26-man touring squad for his team's four-match Super Rugby tour of Australasia.

    Coetzee named 15 forwards and 11 backs, with Jean de Villiers leading a squad that features fit-again stars Scarra Ntubeni, Eben Etzebeth, Rynhardt Elstadt, Elton Jantjies and Bryan Habana.

    “We’ve had a good week off and we’re looking forward to heading off on tour,” said Coetzee ahead of the Stormers’ clashes against the Hurricanes, the Blues, the Waratahs and the Rebels.

    “Traditionally, we’ve always performed well in New Zealand and Australia and we’re naturally hoping for positive results over the next four weeks.

    “It’s a big boost having Scarra, Eben, Rynhardt, Elton and Bryan back from injury, but, like I’ve said throughout the season, it’s a squad effort and we will rely on all 26 players on tour.”
