    Looking at the squad i can only say its going to be a long long season for them

      Gideon Smalberger - 2011-12-08 13:09

      Good looking light five they have there....

      Sean - 2011-12-08 13:29

      Suppose Stormers Motto - Next year we gonna win it , lol !!!

      Facts - 2011-12-08 13:31

      As a Stormer supporter I have to agree with you. We (I) haven't got a clue on what is actually going on down here with management and the coaches anymore. I have already lost interest for next year and I still reckon that Newlands will run empty very early in the new year. Please don't think that I am negative to the team but my feelings are based on FACTS. I really hope I am wrong so please surprise me with a miracle.

      @Isak Amazing you reckon, what is your IQ? 10 yr cupless!

  • Taetjo - 2011-12-08 13:15

    Habana is finished goods. Plan on replacing him soon please. :)

  • Fuad - 2011-12-08 13:29

    confirmation that the cabinet will remain empty at the end of the 2012 season

  • hendrik.pienaar - 2011-12-08 13:44

    They forgot Adrian Jacobs?

  • johan.blertsie.cilliers - 2011-12-08 13:47

    I don't see a proper pivot, only wannabe's

  • Johannes - 2011-12-08 13:48

    With Van den Heever surely having to start on wing ,what about Habana on centre, with Fourie gone and we looking a bit thin in the midfield. He started his career in that position, and since he's not the speedster he used to be, but his defence is still solid. mmm?

  • John - 2011-12-08 13:51

    I could put together a very strong 22 man squad out of this training squad. Really good to see Vermeulen, Bekker, Elstadt all back in the mix. The boneheads will be pleased to know Matfield says the Stormers will go all the way this season.

      Dale - 2011-12-08 13:54

      Matfield also said France would lose by a very big margin in the final. So I wouldn't take matfield's word for it.

      eric.viljoen - 2011-12-08 14:06

      @Dale 1 Point proved to be big enough, no?

  • Bigrp - 2011-12-08 14:27

    Always supported Province and Stormers, but they are making it difficult...I know they are blessed in the loose forward department, but not to offer Pieter Louw a

  • Claud - 2011-12-08 15:17

    Habana, van den Heever , Lobbers en Francis sal seker maar oor die goeie ou dae gesels.

  • Pieter - 2011-12-08 16:26

    Who is the Stormers again, can someone please fill me in. I haven't heard that name in more than a decade.

  • whusselmann - 2011-12-08 16:46

    I don t see any tighthead here that can dominate .Another long season waiting if we do not find such a prop.

      Pieter - 2011-12-08 16:53

      @whusselman Who is "we"? Do you play for the Stormers? It is "them" u little thick twat

  • Stephan - 2011-12-08 19:03

    who is Gerhard vd heever

      Blou-Daan - 2011-12-08 21:22

      A rejected Bulls player :-) Had a good season in 2010 but 2011 was a bad year for him. Personaly I hope that he will regain his form because I was a great fan of his when he was still playing for the Bulls.

  • Pieter - 2011-12-09 06:59

    Ek sal graag so bietjie op Nuweland wil op en af stap en die rook uit so 10 to 15 van die arrogante, windg@t gemors bl!ksem. Hierdie Stormer pateetjies is besig om vir my om te sukkel

      Morne - 2011-12-09 11:37

      Bla Bla Bla.... Jy kan nie eers reg praat nie... Koei.

      Pieter - 2011-12-09 17:02

      @Morne Ek stel voor bietjie Botox vir jou laterale canthale plooie en Juvederm filler om jou belaglike bol wangetjies op te vul. Jy praat duidelik te veel vir wat jou breintjie weet

  • Terence.Craig.Berry - 2011-12-09 08:34

    That pose of Habana has become his trademark after knocking on.

      Pieter - 2011-12-10 17:27

      @Terence True, he does it around 169 times per game
