Stormers flare is suffering!

What can we as Stormer supporters do to improve our team? How can a team with a backline containing JdV, JdJ, Habana and Aplon score the least amount of tries of all teams? It not like they are playing behind a weak pack of forwards. The attacking flair is being coached out of them. It’s time that we get an ALL new coaching staff. The big thing is that even when we manage to squeeze out a win, it is just not entertaining to watch Stormers rugby anymore. I watched each game last year when we finished nr1 on the log, telling myself that even though the Stormers’ game would be the most boring game of the weekend we would be able to win the competition at the end of the year. A few years ago many breakdown rules were put into place to promote attacking rugby i.e tackler must release before fetching, thus attacking play is rewarded, why don’t we attack? Most teams get 5 log points per win. We want to see running rugby, we want to see creativity on attack, we want to see tries, we don’t want to watch our team defend for most of the game; we won’t get this with Alistar Coetzee there. I really hope he is big enough to realize this and give somebody else a go.
