    2015-05-18 16:01

    Cape Town - The Stormers have returned from their week off with no major injury concerns ahead of their Super Rugby clash against the Rebels at Newlands on Saturday (kick-off 19:10).

    Johnny Kotze sat out Monday’s afternoon session with a minor niggle, whie fellow wing Kobus van Wyk remains on track for the Lions match on June 6.

    Speaking ahead of the Rebels match, Coetzee told the Stormers’ official website:

    “The Rebels have beaten the Crusaders and the Brumbies away this year, so it shows their capacity as a team. We’ve had a good bye, with three big games coming up at Newlands, but it’s all about this weekend and getting the victory.

    “We need to get certain things right again, and we’ve looked at that, so it’s more about ensuring we are strong and better as a team rather than worrying about our opponents.”

    The full Stormers injury report on Monday:

    - Wing Johnny Kotze (ankle stiffness) took part in the morning session on Monday but sat out the afternoon session. He is not in doubt for this weekend.

    - Flank Michael Rhodes missed training with a cold but will hopefully join team training soon as he nears his comeback from a hamstring injury.

    - Centre Jaco Taute will play Vodacom Cup rugby (Western Province are in the semi-finals) as his comeback from a knee injury continues to gather momentum. He has now played two games in a row for WP.

    - Wing Kobus van Wyk (knee) is still on track for the Lions match, having started pitch-side running on Monday.
