Watching Stormers is painful

I am 25 years old, and I know the average amount of Rugby, but it goes without saying I am a huge Stormers fan. Since I was a boy, and we had DSTV in the house I did not miss a game of the Stormers.

From the old days of Pieter Rossouw and his brother, to Corne Krige and De Wet Barry with his tackles. I remember almost all of Stormers games since 1996. These days I force myself to watch a Stormers game, its like trying to stuff rocks down my throat. It is bad, and I know there is a lot of Stormers fans out there that is saying 'a win is a win', but I believe rugby is also there for entertainment. No wonder the Players are starting to pick up injures, defending is obviously taking more energy than attacking.

Take all the backline players to a Schoolboy rugby game, and just let them watch the game. I don't want to sound rude, but that is what they are missing. The basics of running with ball in hand, and don't try to make it more difficult for yourself. It is really depressing to see your team hurting themselves like this.

Please Stormers make the game easy for yourself and not as hard as you are making it now.
