Coetzee: One of our best wins

2012-07-01 22:33

Cape Town - Stormers coach Allister Coetzee declared that his side's match-winning effort against the animated Lions was "one of the best wins of the season" after his flu-hit squad held out bravely at Newlands on Saturday.

The Stormers won 27-17, after leading 13-3 at half-time.

Hours before kick-off, fullback Joe Pietersen, wing Bryan Habana and utility back Burton Francis were withdrawn due to illness, and then wing Danie Poolman, who originally did not feature in the match-day squad, was a first-half casualty. He was replaced by centre Marcel Brache, who was also destined to be a spectator.

Brache's entry forced the Stormers to move their captain, Jean de Villiers, out to the wing and Coetzee admitted afterwards that it was far from ideal for the skipper to be so far removed from the action.

"It might not have been a crowd-pleasing performance but this was one of the best wins of the season in the light of what happened with the squad before the match," Coetzee said.

"Last night [Friday] Bryan was still on a drip and three players were down with flu.

"It was an important win against a Lions side that a lot of people write off. But this Lions side was efficient and put us under pressure.

"This performance shows that we are improving as a team."

Coetzee said Poolman picked up a hamstring strain and was likely to be out for 10 days, but lock Andries Bekker came through his comeback match without complications.

The Stormers next clash with the Cheetahs in Bloemfontein on Saturday.

      lean.sadie - 2012-07-01 22:52

      Right mr Troll. You just know all about rugby. Go coach the All Blacks please. PS, you scared to post on ur real name? Poor baby.

      japjapjap.wat - 2012-07-01 23:04

      jinne @lean, jy's baie aggresief vir so laat op 'n sondag aand?? ek kom wens jo spannejie en afrigter geluk en nou kom raak jy sommer so' onplesierig hier?? Ek's ni bang om my naam hier te publiseer ni...hulle noem my 'Kas', lean; en buitendien jy ken alreeds my van, nl 'Troll'?? so nou weet jy alles van my...inkluis dat ek ook alles weet van rugby?? ps. moet dit nou ni aan almal uitblaker ni asb??

      lean.sadie - 2012-07-01 23:09

      Sondag aand? Dit is nou Eers 5 uur hier. Jammer, ek weet jy kan nie lees nie. En dat jy bang is. Geen mens, wat regtig belangstel aan rugby sal n fake naam maak soos jy en Harold en die anders. I Think you are all the same person. Just to give yourself thumbs up all day, and start the stuff you trolls do. Don't matter, nothing you say makes any sense or has any meaning whatsoever. Musta been hard to........

      frans.visserdsb - 2012-07-01 23:10

      Lean... Yes, they are all scared to post under their real names. Because unlike most of the Stormers supporters, they are not proud to support their team. I would not go as far as to say it's our best win, but it was a win. with a severely depleted team. Next week the Cheetahs...

      lean.sadie - 2012-07-01 23:15

      Yes frans. I Just find it super funny, that all these no name brand people are Bull supporters. I Have yet to see one stormer who acts like that. If my team loses they lose, life goes on, and i will still support them even if we lose every game. Unlike most people out there. Winning is cool and all, but it ain't everything. Any TRUE supporter would know that.

      chaplinncharlie - 2012-07-01 23:40

      Best Win... lol... how the standard has drop... en julle twee werf 3tt3rs moet aan hou met julle K....Lean sit bietjie n fotokie op van daai gevreet van toe asb...

      thomas.cannon.712 - 2012-07-01 23:58

      Not all Bulls supporters are no name brands!! I for one were impressed with the way the Stormers came through with the no name brands they had to call on for Saturdays game!! The Bulls were good and then let the game slide when they knew they were home and dry!! The late great Basil Kenyon told my dad in a club game playing for Transkie when they had the opposition dead and buried at half time, now we hit the nail home!!!

      sean.lambie.3 - 2012-07-02 00:36

      and you WOULD know, hey sean ??

      jason.children - 2012-07-02 08:26

      I have decided not to take any comments seriously by anyone who is too scared to make those comments under their real profile pic and name!! Come come lads and lasses, have the courage of your convictions! As for the game, im happy the Stormers won, it was always going to be tough, losing 3 players to the flu the night before and then moving your Capt onto the wing! But they showed metal and BMT! Stormers 4 Life! P.S really shocked to see Strauss publicly complain about the ref!

      jason.children - 2012-07-02 08:46

      No Raven, i dont come here to make friends...............i come here to hopefully, from time to time, find an intelligent rugby conversation that isnt laced with provincial bias and Troll verbal Diarrhea!

      John - 2012-07-02 09:04

      I'm also not sure where Alister is coming from. The rugby was poor and the Stormers need to improve by about 80%, on Saturdays performance, to win the S15. The basic skills were shocking and Aplon mistake was unforgiveable & cost us the bonus point. Surely the Stormers luck must turn with all these injuries & sick okes. Next thing Alister will start looking at Paarl Gym for players to fill the gaps.

      jono.qmann - 2012-07-02 09:46

      Its amazing how people attack our style of rugby and moan when we win and how we win! A win is a win and the last time i checked we have won the most out of all the SA teams and also we beat the Bulls twice with our "crappy" style of rugby! whenever someone moans about how you won, or how you play when you win only means one jealous when we win! otherwise if you wernt you wouldnt comment and judge! So on that note i have realised when STOMERS win there is allot of suurgatte and jealous Bulls that actually become cows after a Stormers win! O and Peter Grant looked good when he kicked that one from the touch line outside the 22? only in front of the poles hey......only easy kicks hey.....bla bla bla!!! did MS miss another one this weekend? its becoming a habit for him now we see! even Jantjies kicks beter than him lolololololololololol ....sorry keyboard got stuck!!!

      dustin.dewet - 2012-07-02 10:16

      Congrats to the Stormers. Still feel they were lucky to win this one. Had the Lions not conceded that turnover and actually scored it probably would have been the end. The only difference between these two teams on Saturday was that the Stormers believed they could win. You could see after that turnover on the Stormers tryline the Lions players heads starting to hang. Saturday will present a different challenge with the Cheetahs on their home turf looking to spoil the Stormers party. Especially after the Bulls gave them a hammering.

      jono.qmann - 2012-07-02 10:17

      Wat moet ek kry Raven?

      jono.qmann - 2012-07-02 11:37

      Raven ons tactic en game plan is nie gebaseer op running rugby nie, ons speel veilig rugby wanneer ons die bal in hand het en ons probeer nie crazy goed aan te vang nie. Ons speel solid fundemental quality rugby en dit is hoekom ons nommer een is. Hoe boring was julle rugby spel toe julle teen n span gespeel het wat solid was op defence? huh? skop en hoop vir n fout, skop en speel in hulle helfte en wag vir n penalty??? huh hoe boring was dit nie om te kyk nie? jy sit en skryf so baie junk op hierdie sights maar jy vergeet hoe boring jou span rugby speel teen goeie opponente!!! Stomers speel nie fancy en exciting rugby nie, maar kyk waar is dit werk vir ons! vat al jou tyd wat jy hier op spandeer en gaan help MS met sy stel skoppe asb, julle gaan dit nodig he teen die beter opponente!

      Jacques you hitting that nail Nicely on the head... but lets see. We don't want the Viskoppe to start stressing already...

      frans.visserdsb - 2012-07-01 23:47

      Jacques, Ek is so bly dat jy dink die Bulls moet net opdaag om die game te wen volgende Saterdag. Baie goed so. Dis goed om selfvertroue te he. Ek onthou dieselfde tipe kommentaar voor die game teen die Stormers... lol

      anwar , they lucky we let them onto news 24 after the Stormers D team nailed the so called Springbok team.

      harold.lloyd.520 - 2012-07-02 08:35

      They have 4 teams but still no cups.

      jed.vonallemann - 2012-07-02 08:52

      jed.vonallemann - 2012-07-02 09:19

      So we beat your A-team twice?

      harold.lloyd.520 - 2012-07-02 09:55

      Raven, for them it's al about beating the Bulls.

      Well done to the Stormers for thus far topping the SA Conference. Now please, I beg you (and I mean this from the bottom of my heart), don't choke (like always) in the final stages!

  • brendan.vanderpluym - 2012-07-01 22:44

    Wow, low standards...

      lean.sadie - 2012-07-01 22:50

      Your beloved team sent on a few replacements, and got 4 tries scored against you in 20 mins. The stormers are without 10 people. What would happen to the bulls with the same injuries to them. They can barely make the playoffs with a full team. Clearly people want to just troll like you. Even the mighty crusaders would struggle with as many injuries/sicknesses the stormers had. Look what happened to the reds. Sure its part of the game. BUT the stormers are still winning, which at the end of the day is all that counts. Where is the low standard, if you keep winning? With 3 people drawn out of the team on match day? Lol, that makes me laugh.

      japjapjap.wat - 2012-07-01 22:56

      shoe @lean- "With 3 people drawn out of the team on match day??" dit klink sleg?? wil di ouens ni meer vir weepee speel ni... of toi-toi hulle net voor di wedstryd vir meer zim-dollars/papsak??

      harold.lloyd.520 - 2012-07-01 22:58

      It's almost sad Brendan, how the once mighty union's standards have dropped this low.

      lean.sadie - 2012-07-01 23:02

      Blah blah, no name brand, people. What u say means nothing. Plus not my fault you can't read.

      brendan.vanderpluym - 2012-07-01 23:23

      Stormers fans wish their team could score as many tries (even over 2 games) as lean.sadie jumps to their defence with comments hahaha

      john.edwards.733450 - 2012-07-01 23:48

      lean then why do you comment on it ? looks like some dissonance reduction to me. O, and my beloved team had it wrapped up at that point, foot came a little off the gas and the Cheetahs can hurt you if you allow them to gain a little momentum. "BUT the stormers are still winning, which at the end of the day is all that counts" .. it's not all that counts . Rugby is *entertainment* .. NOTHING entertaining about a Stormers game .. I have to fight off the zzzzs whenever I say the name. I personally like watching the Lions implode more than watching the Stormers defend their way to another lucky "win". At some point your luck is going to run out and you're not going to get that score against the flow or the bad ref decision go your way . As for not using real names ... it's called anonymous communication and it has many benefits does that impact the validity of a statement .. please do tell ?

      orrinf8 - 2012-07-02 00:12

      it's called COWARD .. 'dude', why don't you randomly DISAPPEAR, and take Herald, Aap, Tom, BlueBird, fake Herald, brendan with you .. bipolar sicko :)

      john.edwards.733450 - 2012-07-02 00:38

      dear orrin .. what is the difference between using a fake name or using your own name and making your FB profile opaque .? Also, let me give you a little reality check . You don't get to tell me what to do . Do you understand that ?

      orrinf8 - 2012-07-02 00:59

      schizophrenic or bipolar ?? I get confused with those 2 !! :)

      john.edwards.733450 - 2012-07-02 01:06

      I'm sure you do

      orrinf8 - 2012-07-02 01:27

      nope, definitely bipolar !! ;D

      john.edwards.733450 - 2012-07-02 02:06

      Thanks for that orrin but I support the Bulls. I think those words are better directed to the supporters of a team who has not won a SR title in 16 yrs.

      lean.sadie - 2012-07-02 02:14

      Random, like I said before, everything you say makes no sense and has no credibility. Keep the gibberish coming please. That is all you are good at. Certainly too afraid to be a real man.

      john.edwards.733450 - 2012-07-02 08:26

      aww , what's wrong with the way I look ?!?

      reinhard.gunter.9 - 2012-07-02 09:31

      Onthou dit is net die stormers wat beserings kry. Die Leeus het nie vir Wickus,Doppies,Jaco Taute,Killian,James Kamana,Pat Cilliers,Cj van der linde,en nog 'n paar ander verloor nie! Nee dit word nie genoem nie,want die arme weepee span....

      dustin.dewet - 2012-07-02 10:44

      @lean.sadie - the game was already won when the replacements came on. Unlike the Stormers who were very lucky to win, if not for that last turnover on the Stormers tryline things would have been very different. But they did win and in the end that is probably all that counts. Just remember that the Bulls are in a rebuilding phase and probably will be for the next season or two. But when youngsters such as, Serfontein, Venter, Sadie, Engelbrecht and the like find their feet and settle down I can't see any other S15 sides beating them on a regular basis.

      frans.visserdsb - 2012-07-02 22:09

      Not sure about 'low standards'. I rather think having a win percentage in the high 80's is better than the mid 60's... but then i suppose for the bull is it more about the style than the result. put it into terms they will understand - as long as Morne looks good while he kicks the ball, it does not matter if it is over.

  • agvanwyk - 2012-07-01 23:20

    Is this guy smoking something. Seriously against the Lions, to only win by 10. I think that's a huge embarrassing score.

      brendan.vanderpluym - 2012-07-01 23:25

      Prepare to be called a troll hehehe - 2012-07-02 00:39

      All you people saying things like agvanwyk is saying should really start reading before they comment. AC is saying it was a great win under the circumstances, under normal circumstances yes it would have been a bad victory but look at the team that played on the day and think again. Joe, Bryan, Francis were withdrawn from the game due to cold plus the team are already missing Kitshoff, Burger, Etzebeth, Vermeulen and Elstadt then they lost poolman in the firsthalf aswell.After all of this to win against a determined Lions team was a great win under the circumstances so i agree 100% with the statement.

      lean.sadie - 2012-07-02 02:32

      What are you smoking? Embarrassing is a few weeks ago, losing to a lions team. Winning by 10 surely is not embarrassing considering the circumstances. Oh wait sorry , that means you would have actually to read the article. My bad. Man, I didn't realize reading was so hard. :(

      paul.sdoow - 2012-07-02 05:30

      losing to the blues is even worse than losing to the lions. o wait that wasn't wp that lost!

      harold.lloyd.520 - 2012-07-02 08:39

      No Paul, for a union with the money and infracture like the Stormers has, not winning a Super rugby trophy in 17 years is worse than anything else.

  • Christopher Zoony De Croes - 2012-07-02 00:05

    i dont care that my team doesnt score 4 or more tries anymore because we hardly lose :) :) and will be topping the sa conf :) the pinkies are gonna drown in the tank :) - 2012-07-02 00:46

      Agreed, it seems as though most supporters, especially the ones from the bulls are more happy with getting the 4 try bonus point these days than the 4 points for a win.

      lean.sadie - 2012-07-02 02:38

      They can score 4 tries in every game the whole season. Then in the final they score 0 and lose. Because you know it is so easy to score tries in finals. At the very least, stormers are learning to win the close games, which they lacked in the past. Sure is not a bad thing. Never knew scoring tries was the only thing that mattered. If that's the case, why aren't the Hurricanes at the top. They scored 10 more tries than the bulls. Funny thing is in the top 6, The bulls and hurricanes scored the most, but guess what, they also Conceded way more than the others in there. Defense wins titles, just as much as being able to score points.

      steyts - 2012-07-02 07:00

      lean sadie you may say that and I know everybody says defense wins titles, BUT the stormers has had the best defense the past three years and still we have no trophy in the cabinet.. (Note: Stormers not WP) I surely do hope that changes this year!! The team will be a lot stronger vs the cheetahs this weekend with pplayers like Kitshoff, Etsebeth, Habana, Elstadt and Pietersen returnong to the side! Chances are very good that the Bulls won't make the play offs if they lose this weekend!!! If that happens and the stormers win then it is the conference in the bag! However we cannot afford to lose any of our last two games because if the brumbies gt a bonus point win over either the waratahs (a) or the blues (h) then we will finish third!! That is to say if we don't get a bonus point..

      harold.lloyd.520 - 2012-07-02 08:41

      Raven don't bother trying to explain.

      steyts - 2012-07-02 08:50

      Haha - Oops, thought the 52 points was the bulls but I see now it is the crusaders... That changes it a bit!! Will be interesting to see who the stormers will play at Newlands come semi finals... :)

      dustin.dewet - 2012-07-02 10:53

      The core of this Stormers side has been playing together for a good couple of seasons now and still they don't have anything to show for it. The Stormers supporters are quick to point out the couple of injuries they had but neglect to point out the number of Lions players who are injured and let's not forget the off the field dramas at the Lions. They were lucky to win this one, yes they won and that is all that counts but I still think the wheels are gonna come off at some point.

  • paul.sdoow - 2012-07-02 05:53

    sorry AC that was not one of the best wins! the best was beating bulls at newlands and second best was at moftus (both while they wore pink) ! come now get the facts straight.

      .. and then fail to win it . The fact that you said make the final and not win it says a lot . You do know if you make the final but fail to win it you're the very best loser ?

    I can not believe a team are still being troubled by Flu, next year get the Flu injections for the whole group, it is not that expensive.

  • roy.wadhams.1 - 2012-07-02 09:50

    The STORMERS won, with even a lot of good players down with the flu etc. Just shows everyone that our guys are the BEST and we here in Cape Town are the "bestest" in the whole of SA

      Leave them, Raven. They only fool themselves.

    "Boys held for gang-raping girl" article - 11 comments "Coetzee - our best win ever" aricle - 104 comments and counting

      louwc - 2012-07-02 11:00

      My point is that if you want to become infamous, do something disgusting, like become the Stormers or Springbok coach ;)

  • dustin.dewet - 2012-07-02 11:04

    You managed to JUST beat a side with almost 11 first choice players not available, no coach and no certainty about where they will be playing next season. "One of our best wins" - what a crock of S^&T! Thank God he didn't get the Bok job.

      TYPICAL Stomers SUPPORTER. Jake WHITE was THE RWC winning COACH. AC was AN ASSISTANT along FOR the RIDE. Jake HAD to GET Eddie IN to DO AC's job . HOW many TITLES did THE stomers WIN with YOUR great COACH ? That WOULD be A BIG fat 0 ? THEY'RE only WINNING games BECAUSE of NIENABER's defense . LOOK at THE Brumbies UNDER JW much LESS talent AND resources BUT playing BETTER rugby THAN the STOMERS (in THEIR 1st SEASON).

      orrinf8 - 2012-07-02 16:57

      WOAH, you RANDOMly appear, DUDE, and still as anal as ever .. all your long stories and all your BULLcrap is never-ending .. you really are a bitter individual .. AC was ASSISSTANT/BACK-LINE coach to Jake White's 2007 rugby world cup team with Eddie Jones as technical advisor, and here you come along and try to deny AC he's credit in helping the Boks WIN THAT WORLD CUP !! he IS a WORLD CUP WINNING COACH, DUDE, DEAL WITH IT !!!

      john.edwards.733450 - 2012-07-02 18:50

      Aww is the M0nkey throwing poo ? Jake had to get Eddie because AC was useless . Once Eddie became involved the backline play transformed ... deal with it .

      john.edwards.733450 - 2012-07-02 20:28

      funny how when ppl talk about the WC win it's Jake and Eddie's names being mentioned ... .. STOMERS, LOSERS 4 LIFE!!!
