Stormers shut out Maties

2011-01-22 16:51

Stellenbosch - A Stormers XV kept Stellenbosch scoreless in a warm-up match at Coetzenburg on Saturday.

The Stormers XV won 17-0 after leading 7-0 at half-time.

Coach Allister Coetzee targeted this fixture as an opportunity to trial fringe players.

Former Maties Varsity Cup speedster, Tythan Adams, scored the Stormers first try, and Elgar Watts’s conversion ensured they went to the break with a 7-0 lead. Adams scored a second in the second half, while centre Michael van der Spuy also got on the scorecard.

"Conditions were not easy with the wind and the Maties offered tough opposition," said Coetzee.

"We got the answers we were looking for, with some players impressing.

"All in all though, it is great to be giving players the vital game time they need in preparation for the season ahead."

The Stormers will play the Lions next Friday in the first fixture of the Neo Africa Tri-Series at Newlands.

    The only retard is you @ Wagga for making such comments; lack of intellect to make a useful contribution on an article. Shame Donald Stevens and Hanekom of Maties players to watch in varisty cup

      Johnny - 2011-01-24 08:40

      hey rob, its just funny to me how the people like @wagga and @johnny always comment on articles bout the stormers. why do they feel the need to read about us and what we are doing? they probably feel threatened, maybe even scared. the real losers are the fans of the blue bulls - fact is that the mother of a bull will always be a cow, explains alot :D LOL

    Pity they did not allow the Maties try. Score could have looked better for the students side!

      dushaas - 2011-01-24 08:49

      98% of the team the stormers fielded are also still students

    Bit unfair playing against students in Jool week . . . 9 am in the morning! But things will certainly pick up for the Maties, come Varsity Cup time!

  • dushaas - 2011-01-24 08:53

    That's why the rest of the country will support any team as long as it is not the Bulls. Because of moron's like you two. The funny thing is, your're losing streak started in the CC last year and is not going to end soon. So go ahead, lambast, make fun and point fingers. Pretty soon the whole country will be doing it to you
