Triple boost for Stormers

2012-07-16 15:24

Cape Town - There was good news on Monday for Stormers coach for Allister Coetzee as lock Eben Etzebeth, wing Gio Aplon and flank Siya Kolisi were all cleared for full team training and are available to play in their home Super Rugby semi-final next Saturday.

Video: Horrific hit on Gio Aplon    

Etzebeth hasn't played the last two weeks after a gruelling Test series for the Springboks against England.

Aplon took a knock to the head when he collided with team-mate Rynhardt Elstadt in the 26-21 win over the Rebels on Saturday, while Kolisi also limped off at half-time.

While Coetzee was happy about his star trio's availability for the Newlands semi-final, it looks unlikely that loose forwards Duane Vermeulen and Schalk Burger will be ready.

“Duane Vermeulen and Schalk Burger are both also progressing really well, but both still remain doubtful starters for the semi. Both will undergo final assessments on Thursday as to their availability to participate in team training next week and as to their potential availability for the playoff,” said Coetzee.

“We are in pretty good shape, injury wise, for this stage of the competition. It has been a gruelling couple of months. The players have the luxury of three days downtime before regrouping on Thursday for training and preparation.”

      dave.short.102 - 2012-07-16 15:42

      @Isak, dis nou dieselfde parra wat hele tyd oor die bulle dinge te se het, kan uitdeel maar kan nie vat nie. Jou vrou nog nie vir jou werk nie?

      John - 2012-07-16 15:44

      Eke sal my van verander as eke jy is (SpieS) en Tom, gaan soek werk want jy is soos n kind wat nie n lekker het nie!

      dawiej - 2012-07-16 16:08

      Johan, gaan speel met jou ma se onderklere man.... Oooops, jou ma was n man ...

      Stormkaap - 2012-07-16 16:30

      Isak these two turds suffer from attention seeking syndrome. Dont respond to their comments. These are obviously of those that only mothers would love. Basically born via the anal passage.

      tom.tardis - 2012-07-16 16:34

      firstly, u cannot be born through the anal passage besides under extreme circumcisions secondly, my mother never loved me - i pay women to love me instead - by the hour

      jono.qmann - 2012-07-16 16:40

      tom.retardis...howsit bud! how was it gyming with your holborsels today? cruising in your kompressor whatever series today i assume my chaan!? Anyway...if your bulls win this weekend then you guys can chat a little bit more with the semifinalist! oki?

      tom.tardis - 2012-07-16 17:04

      hey bud! tsek!

      Johann - 2012-07-16 18:39

      Tom, you've come up with some beauts but this one takes the cake! I have seen some extreme CIRCUMSTANCES in my time, but I can't wait to bear witness to an extreme CIRCUMCISION!!! Ty Pennington would be the perfect host: NURSE, MOVE THAT FORESKIN!!!

      frans.visserdsb - 2012-07-16 19:40

      Bwahahaha... Johan - good one - it must have been a REALLY extreme Circumcision if he then can be born via the anal passage.... maybe our good Canadian Doctor can comment on the medical genius of Tom?

      john.edwards.733450 - 2012-07-16 20:14

      Oooh Isak trying to act all hard like .. hahahaha .. or what isak ? .. you're going to write a strongly worded letter ?

      john.edwards.733450 - 2012-07-16 20:28

      holly hell but you zzzztormerzzz trolls are as boring as your team ... "gaan speel met jou ma se onderklere man" 'Oooops, jou ma was n man ...' 'tom.retardis' O snap ! I miss old lean though. He always made me feel grateful .

      tom.tardis - 2012-07-16 20:47

      random, lean disappeared into the trolling abyss after we pulled a carte blanche debra patty on her and exposed the tragic situation of getting disses online, high five boet

      ChrisinOz294 - 2012-07-16 23:47

      @dim.turdis. Yes your comment was first. Congrats. Nou kan jy maar gaan slaap. Jou job is gedoen.

      john.edwards.733450 - 2012-07-17 01:40

      Tom I feel a bit kuk about that man ... it felt a bit like I was beating up on one of those "special" ppl.

  • lionel.kemm.9 - 2012-07-16 15:29

    Good news indeed,was Deon Fourie not outstanding at 8 or what even took a lineout ball as well. I don't think he is a long term solution but can cover if need be.

      TravieGrif - 2012-07-16 15:33

      I cannot believe that Aplon is ready. He should NEVER have stayed on the field on Saturday after he had taken that knock. He was out like a light, which was a terrible thing to see, but I was not impressed that he stayed on. I don't think that it is smart to put rugby players health in jeopardy. He is tough as nails, no denying, but not the brightest thing to do!

      lionel.kemm.9 - 2012-07-16 15:41

      I would have to agree with you on that,he did not look well after that knock.The way that he went down I thought,hospital here he comes, but he is tough.

      japjapjap.wat - 2012-07-16 15:57

      @travie- het jy geweet, klein a-plonkie kan di hartste houe vat, soos dit kom...hy't niks om te verloor ni?? maar mens wonder maar of daar onder di weepee girlyboys 'onsmaaklikhede' of 'ongemaklikhede' is of ni, dat hulle mekaar so uithaal?? shame...

      lionel.kemm.9 - 2012-07-16 16:04

      Maestro,positive thing about Deon Fourie is that he has been tried at 6 and 8 and he has not dissapointed.I think AC is covering his bases if any more injuries occur.

      Stormkaap - 2012-07-16 16:31

      Lionel I agree with you. Should have been replaced and what for is strange is that there were coaches who felt that he was too small to play

      tom.tardis - 2012-07-16 16:35

      his impersonation of a rag doll was so good. he is probably everyones first choice for their charades team

      stephen.axtell.7 - 2012-07-16 17:20

      tom retardis trying to impersonate a person with a semblance of an iq is hilarious.

      tom.tardis - 2012-07-16 18:08

      i do not impersomate people with IQ - if i did i would impersomate albert eksteen, ever heard of E = MC2???? ja didnt think so, its over your heads

      Stormkaap - 2012-07-16 18:40

      Want probeer djy breeg djy ken 'n bietjie physics, bly stil peophol.. ken djy vir lap!

      frans.visserdsb - 2012-07-16 19:42

      Seriously Tom - can you explain that equation for me? just the meaning of the symbols would be good... and don't google it now!

      frans.visserdsb - 2012-07-16 19:44

      And Tom - here is a mathematical equation you would understand: Did you know that the square root of 69 is 8 something?

      Paul - 2012-07-16 20:01

      who the hell is Albert "EKSTEEN"?? And why is he being accredited with the theory of relativity?

      shooshyu.tu - 2012-07-16 20:15

      @Paul that would be Tom Tardive Dyskinesia's (google it) take on the genius, he is so clueless he can't even spell impersonate properly & this from the grammar/spelling nazi always trying to correct others- Huge FAIL Terdus but I guess that is the result of your inbreeding with your cousins.

      shooshyu.tu - 2012-07-16 20:18

      @Tom Tardive Dyskinesia "i do not impersomate people with IQ - if i did i would impersomate albert eksteen," impersoNate not impersoMate.

      tom.tardis - 2012-07-16 20:22

      u ous are so stupid. u think i dont know the original inventor of e=mc2 is mariah carey Emancipation = Mariah Carey ever heard of the emancipation of mimi theory? ja boet im not so dof hey. try another one to catch me out hey....OWNED chaan, OWNED

      tom.tardis - 2012-07-16 20:39

      what is google? how do i do it?

      john.edwards.733450 - 2012-07-16 20:51

      tom, high five

      tom.tardis - 2012-07-16 20:52

      ja bud, u no how to hurt someone hey. deep. but the problem are you cant say "huge fail" because it are not grammatically corect.,idiot and albert eksteen is that jew from germany who invented time travel and painted the cistern chapel. seeriously do you have anything worthwhile to contribute besides personal insults and trying to unsuccessfully question my intelergins?

      bfvillet - 2012-07-16 21:27

      tommy your pretence to intelligence only exposes your lack of it please give it a rest and if you still claim inteligence then act accordingly it is getting dull and commin.

      tom.tardis - 2012-07-16 21:36


      bfvillet - 2012-07-16 21:54

      tom.tardis - 2012-07-16 21:56


      bfvillet - 2012-07-16 22:26

      tommy at first i thought leave it but on second thoughts not you remind me of this chaplin guy i had the same kind of spar with always said the same things like you in fact i think you the luyt guy and spies are the same person because believe me no three different people can spit out the exact same bile you three do.I actually think your profiles are false and these are three alter ego`s you have created 1.the steroid hunk 2. the hippie and 3. the expat doc.I suggest you get help before its too late.You are probably a scrawny unemployed nerd who still lives with his parents

      tom.tardis - 2012-07-16 22:47

      midi midi warcraft midi starcraft midi midi duke nukem midi midi counterstrike. bfvillet why r u so highly strung? the fact u taking on a fight with anonymous forum trolls trying to insult us reflects more on you than on us chaan. sleep on it, wake up tomorrow and dont take everything so seriously boet. you cant spell common, we all have something we cant do good. and spelling is your problem. it will get better, dont worry buddy. if you need some help with the basic ins and outs of the language i would be more than happy to help.

  • mike.burrows.37 - 2012-07-16 15:29

    What amazed me was the fact that the WP medical staff let Aplon say on the field after he was clearrly out for at least 10 seconds

      niel.walt - 2012-07-16 15:36

      He was lying in the long grass and they couldn't find him

      alfred.joseph.94 - 2012-07-16 16:01

      Agreed. He was laying there like a rag doll.

      tom.tardis - 2012-07-16 16:15

      it was HILARIOUS i rewound it and replayed it over and over and over and over

      ChrisinOz294 - 2012-07-17 01:03

      @mike.burrows. There's no-one tougher than Gio Aplon in SA rugby. If it was someone like showpony Pierre Spiertjies he would have been stretchered off and not be able to play for two years.

      frans.visserdsb - 2012-07-17 06:32

      Chris - that would be no different from the past 5 years... He stopped playing rugby when had that 'rare blood disease' which kept him out of the 2007 rugby world cup...

      john.edwards.733450 - 2012-07-17 07:25

      Someone should put together a best of compilation of Gio hehe

      ChrisinOz294 - 2012-07-17 07:48

      @Randomdude. OK, here's a couple for you: I like the first one. It almost look like Wynand Olivier stood still. Did he stop running? Maybe he pulled a hammie?

      john.edwards.733450 - 2012-07-17 08:27

      Sorry Chris didn't bother ... try and be more original

      tom.tardis - 2012-07-16 16:52

      lets be honest, the stormers have way hotter cheerleaders than the bulls. the braks i saw at loftus are not worth my eye time. the stormers girls however, sweet mother of pearl, they are the only reason to even put the TV on when the stormers play. in that regard the stormers have won

      Craven Luyt - 2012-07-16 21:19

      Cape Maori was sailing the seven seas one day when a massive tsunami picked him up and deposited on Macassar beach, the locals took him in, with all the drunken incest going on he soon decided to stay. And that's how the cape crusaders began. Craven

      ChrisinOz294 - 2012-07-17 04:31

      @Dr. Spiertjies. If the qualification system was continued, the Bulls would have failed to make the Super 12/14/15 in 1999, 2000 and 2001. So what is your point?

    Great game by Fourie ,have to agree it was certainly not wise to leave Aplon on. A bit to close for comfort but they certainly showed they can go up a level if they needed to. FINALS HERE WE COME!!!

      bootman.bokke - 2012-07-16 22:21

      I can only imagine what would happen if Spies took a knock like that.....................Probably would have shat his pants and retired from rugby. How does Spies sleep at night knowing that a little guy like Aplon has more guts in his small toe than he has in his whole body.

      Trots op die span wat jy ondersteun? Maar jy is omtrent met min tevrede, foeitog. Bietjie jaloers op my Kanada prestasies? Wie se ek bly permanent hier? En dokter het groot hande, se maar net terwyl jy praat van op hande dra.

      John - 2012-07-16 16:45

      Eugene, moenie jy tyd verder mos met Johan nie. Hy bly seker in Brakpan en het nie n werk nie, en steel die bure se internet cap om op news 24 met mense teperaat want hy het nie vriende nie

      eugene.vandermerwe - 2012-07-16 16:58

      Johan, ek sal eendag met jou praat as jy kan rugby praat sonder om persoonlik en pateties te raak. Ek praat rugby, nie die snert wat jy praat nie. Moet asb nie vir die mense daar sê jy kom van SA af nie, hulle sal dink ons is 'n hooligan land. Sterkte aan ons drie spanne in die uitspeel games, maak SA trots!!

      ChrisinOz294 - 2012-07-17 01:11

      @dr. spiertjies. Kanada prestasie? Jitte maar jy is met min tevrede.

      johan.spies.18 - 2012-07-17 03:00

      @Chrissie boy Ja nee wat jong, ek is heel gelukkig met $1.5milj per jaar en $10milj ( R 80milj as jy gewonder het hoeveel dit in Rand is) in die bank met geen skuld. Vat nie veel om my gelukkig te maak nie

      ChrisinOz294 - 2012-07-17 03:34

      OK grootbek. As jy wil he ons moet daai strooi glo, sit bietjie op fb a scan van jou bankstaat. Jy wil mos tog so graag he ons moet jaloers wees. Waarop weet ek self nie. En terwyl jy dit doen sit 'n foto'tjie op van daai Ford waaroor jy so aangaan. Tot jy dit gedoen het hou jou bek of praat sense. Ons is nie regtig geintereseerd in jou patetiese lewe op die g#tkant van die aardbol nie. Oh en by the way ek kan ook foto's van die internet download. Maak dit geloofwaardig.

      frans.visserdsb - 2012-07-17 04:14

      Seriously Johan? Ons stel regtig nie belang in jou fantasie wereld nie... En selfs as dit waar was dan sou ek nog steeds nie belang gestel het in hoe jy sukkel nie... al die geld in die wereld gaan nie die feite verander nie - die Bulle het 2 keer vanjaar teen die Stormers verloor. Moet jou baie bitterbek maak ne?

      johan.spies.18 - 2012-07-17 05:22

      @frans Ek vat dit eerder as wat my span nog nooit in die geskiedenis die beker kon wen nie. Dis die toppunt van bitter. En weet jy wat, hulle gaan weer nie wen diejaar nie.

      eugene.vandermerwe - 2012-07-17 12:12

      Weereens bewys Johan aan die wêreld dat geld nie klas kan koop nie. . . . .

  • niel.walt - 2012-07-16 16:32

    the only person in the stormers team that will have a real impact if injured is peter grant

      tom.tardis - 2012-07-16 17:16

      how did i miss this gem. this is the new front runner for quote of the day

      ChrisinOz294 - 2012-07-17 04:38

      @dim.turdis. Because the "gem" was probably concealed by your enormous boeppens.

  • randall.kotze.12 - 2012-07-16 16:33

    Love you stormersssssssssssssssss. So glad our heroes, appie and siya is ok I almost lost it when appie took that blow and what a big heart u still played futher. In future rather take players of with head injuries cause it can cost us at a later stage. Goodluck boys my believe is that we will win this year and me and all stormers supporters are behind every meter you make to the try line....

      niel.walt - 2012-07-16 16:40

      At the pace the stormers go towards the try line you'd swear the field is 10km long

      tom.tardis - 2012-07-16 16:52

      quote of the day, niel walt, give him a round of applause everyone

      niel.walt - 2012-07-16 16:54

      Pls don't like my comments tom, now ill never get a thumbs up again lol

      tom.tardis - 2012-07-16 16:58

      when people give me thumbs down i just think of gladiator and how it means FINISH HIM. and thats what i think i do, i finish people and i finish discussions. thats why they like to give me thumbs down like virtual caesars

      prudence.arendse - 2012-07-16 17:05

      @Niel Tom??? Jealousy makes YOU naaassty!!!GO STORMERS!!!!

      tom.tardis - 2012-07-16 17:05

      prudence i told u twice today, stop loafing. i'll be home in a few minutes with your pay.

      prudence.arendse - 2012-07-16 17:15

      Tom Retard??? I'm sure the BB team actually don't appreciate having u as a supporter!! FLY AWAY....

      tom.tardis - 2012-07-16 18:12

      that is not very prudent of you zOMG

      niel.walt - 2012-07-16 18:16

      Jealous of what? Its so childish that people use the jealousy argument when some1 doesn't agree with them.

      ChrisinOz294 - 2012-07-17 01:15

      @dim.turdis. You have never finished an argument. Neither have you started one. I can't remember when you were ever part of an argument to be honest. So you are really very lonely in your "gladiator" arena. So I'd suggest you go put some spray-on tan on or something.

      prudence.arendse - 2012-07-17 12:59

      @ Niel- jealous of what????? Hahaha... LOL! I hit a nerve hey? The Truth Hurts ou bulletjie!!

      tom.tardis - 2012-07-17 14:23

      prudence, seriously i think u broke the iron!!! u supposed to put water in the steaming part if u use the steamer, u cant just leave it dry!!!

  • lance.elliott.3914 - 2012-07-16 16:38

    I was about to call Multi-choice on Saturday as I noticed my tv "rewinding" every time Kolisi tackled a player...I was'nt sure if it was a technical problem caused through Multi-choice's negligence or if it was Kolisi's fault causing my tv cabinet to SHUDDER from the imapct of his tackles which was ultimately causing the PVR to rewind by itself. All the guys Kolisi tackled ened up running backwards running faster than he was running forwards.......I think it was Kolis's fault... sorry for the accusation Multi-choice..

      niel.walt - 2012-07-16 16:44

      The fact that the player was running backwards implies that he was still on his feet, wich means he was driven, not tackled. Hard tackles put people on the ground, ask derick hougaard what a hard tackle is.

      John - 2012-07-16 16:47

      Niel... al cool ding van jou lewe is jou Pug!!!

      niel.walt - 2012-07-16 16:51

      John lol wel noem goed wat dit is, help nie hy gan doen al die moeite om so lang storie te skryf maar hy praat nonsens nie

      reagan.titus.5 - 2012-07-16 20:15


      ray.stadlerjd1 - 2012-07-16 21:44

      king kong Kolisi

      ChrisinOz294 - 2012-07-17 01:19

      @lance.elliot. I noticed the same thing. My tv did not stop shuddering for the whole match. @niel.walt. Aaaah and there we know why the Bulls leaked so many tries. Lets just take the head off the opponent in the tackles. We won't use any brains in the process. Unfortunately the opposition used brains and outwitted them in the process, so they only looked like falling over their own feet. The difference is the Stormers have a defensive pattern. The Bulls have a pattern. And it's pink with some wavy lines.

      tom.tardis - 2012-07-17 14:23

      ray stadler i think its very racist to compare kolisi to a big gorila

  • Christopher Zoony De Croes - 2012-07-16 16:48

    Go Stormers !! i say leave schalk & vermeulen out till the currie cup, would be unfair to put them in come semi or final. doesnt matter who we play in semi's its at newlands :) UNNBEATEN !!!!

  • Eddie.Minora - 2012-07-16 17:04

    Crusaders ons wag vir julle op Nuweland, STORMERRSS!!! Ag shame ek sien die pienkbulletjies is vandag baie upset!

      orrinf8 - 2012-07-16 17:17

      ja nee, 'hulle' kerm laat dit goed gaan :) maar 'hulle' verstaan net nie: ONS STORMERS, SKRIK VIR NIKS !!

  • johan.arendse.90 - 2012-07-16 18:47

    tom,r u here?

  • venet.smit - 2012-07-16 19:47

    If Schalk plays , Stormers lose!

      johan.spies.18 - 2012-07-16 20:26

      And if he doesn't, Stormers still lose

  • christo.vanderwalt.923 - 2012-07-16 22:39

    Geluk Alistair en jou span en die Stormers. Wen is nou maar die naam van die spel. Net een versoek - waarom die "hoop-opblasery" dat Schalk en Duane fiksheidtoetse sal ondergaan. Schalk sal eers weer die einde van die jaar speel en Duane hopelik in die Curriebeker-reeks. Komaan sê dit en kry klaar!!! Sterkte almal.

      johan.spies.18 - 2012-07-17 03:20

      Wie is Schalk en Duane? Is dit die twee met 'n gesamentlike IK van een?

      ChrisinOz294 - 2012-07-17 03:37

      @dr. spiertjies. Dis twee meer as die hele Bulls span saam. (And I know you won't be able to resist that response you have ready.)

      frans.visserdsb - 2012-07-17 06:41

      Ek dink dat die diepte van die stormers regtig getoets is - met Duane, Schalk en Koster uit vir die meeste van die seisoen, het ons jong sterre van die toekoms ontdek in Kolisi en Elstadt. Ons gaan dalk nie vanjaar wen nie - alhoewel ek dink ons het n goeie kans. Maar ek sal se dat die toekoms van WP en Stormer rugby lyk goed. Die meeste van die span is nog jonk, en gaan nog baie jsre speel...

  • bushpigeventsbar - 2012-07-17 16:03

    tom.tardis -Thats a bugger for you , you were drooling at the thought of Schalk's "SEMI"

  • hvanderlinde - 2012-07-18 08:43

    Let's say Schalk and Duanne are ready in time for the final. Does AC play them or the guys that are match fit and accurate in their execution? It's a tough call. We've managed without them for basically the whole season but you cannot under estimate their impact in any game.
