    Stormers happy with venue

    Cape Town - The Stormers are happy that their clash against the Highlanders in Dunedin on Saturday will be played in an enclosed stadium, says forwards coach Matthew Proudfoot.

    Dunedin is renowned for its inclement weather, which has given many a coach sleepless nights in the past. However, with the Highlanders now playing at the Forsyth Barr Stadium, which is an indoor arena, there are no more such worries.

    And Proudfoot believes the scene is set for an entertaining match between the two pace-setters in this year's Super Rugby competition.

    “We are looking forward to playing in Dunedin, winter here can get nasty, but in an enclosed stadium one can only expect a great spectacle of rugby by two sides," Proudfoot told the Stormers website.

    They are currently settled in Queenstown after an extensive 36 hours of travelling.

    “We are in good spirits and spent Tuesday analysing our previous game (a 20-17 home win over the Bulls), this week we will focus on execution and the consistency of our game plans," said Proudfoot.

    On the injury front the Stormers are in a good space with no injuries to report.

    They are back on the training field on Wednesday.

    After the clash against the Highlanders, they take on the Crusaders in Christchurch, Reds in Brisbane and Force in Perth to finish their tour.

    EXPERT OPINION

    “Their defence was again substandard against the Crusaders, but it was another stat which really proved the undoing of the Cheetahs.”
