Boost for Brumbies ahead of Stormers clash

    2015-05-04 15:47

    Cape Town - Brumbies scrumhalf Nic White has arrived in Cape Town ahead of Saturday's Super Rugby clash against the Stormers at Newlands.

    The Brumbies flew into the country on Monday morning after losing at home to the Waratahs last weekend.

    White returns for the Stormers match this weekend after three weeks out, his ankle injury now firmly beaten.

    White said the Stormers presented the Brumbies with a significant challenge.

    "We haven't managed to win over here since 2010, it's a very hostile environment and the crowd always plays a part," White told the Brumbies’ official website.

    "They're in a very similar situation to us, having come off a tight loss to a domestic rival so they'll be right up for the game on Saturday."

    The Brumbies start their two-game tour against the Stormers, before heading to Johannesburg to face the Lions next weekend.

    Brumbies touring squad: JP Smith, Stephen Moore, Ben Alexander, Jordan Smiler, Sam Carter, Scott Fardy, David Pocock, Ita Vaea, Michael Dowsett, Christian Lealiifano, Joe Tomane, Robbie Coleman, Tevita Kuridrani, Henry Speight, Jesse Mogg, Josh Mann-Rea, Allan Alaalatoa, Ruan Smith, Blake Enever, Jarrad Butler, Nic White, James Dargaville, Nigel Ah Wong, Rod Iona, Rory Arnold, Sean Doyle.
