Stormers send SOS to Joubert

2012-05-16 10:17

Cape Town - Saracens No 8 Ernst Joubert could be on his way to Cape Town to help alleviate the Stormers' loose forward injury crisis.

According to a reliable source, the former Lions No 8, who has plied his trade at Saracens since 2009, could join the Stormers' training sessions as early as Wednesday.

Stormers coach Allister Coetzee confirmed on Monday that he'd made a number of overseas phone calls to find out who was available.

"At the moment we are okay, but what will happen if we lose yet another loose forward?

"Anything is possible.

“Schalk Burger, Duane Vermeulen and Nick Koster will only be back from injury in July, but in the interim we need to make a plan for our next three Super Rugby matches against the Waratahs, Sharks and Bulls."

Last week the Cape franchise surprised all and sundry by calling up unheralded Canadian loose forward Jebb Sinclair.

Sinclair was named on the substitutes' bench for last Saturday's match against the Cheetahs at Newlands, and following a serious knee injury to No 8 Nizaam Carr as early as the 22nd minute, Sinclair was summoned into action.

Coetzee has called upon Western Province Vodacom Cup flank Don Armand, who is expected to form part of the matchday 22-man squad to face the Waratahs at Newlands on Saturday. Kick-off is 19:10.

Ceres-born Joubert, 31, has played 86 matches in total for Saracens, including 14 this season in which he has scored eight tries. Prior to his departure for England, he skippered the Lions.

    decent player

      Japjapjap - 2012-05-16 10:13

      jinne, nou koop di stoomers al di hasbeen leeus en canadese op...ek sien al hoe klop AC by ons nasionale netbal spelers aan en ons rolbal vereniging volgende- seker net om bietji poeier te gee aan daai 'lose fowards' en natuurlik slaankrag te gee aan di agterlyn??

      Therealmakoy - 2012-05-16 10:22

      seker beter as die "neverbeens" ( read Sadie ) wat julle gekoop het ?

      Jono - 2012-05-16 12:24

      Japjapjap....jy like om jou 2 cent te gee, en dit is al wat daai comment werd was! Aangesien jou koei vrou seker nie vanoggend van haar melkies vir jou gegee het nie moet asb nie jou tantrums hier kom rondgooi nie! asseblief

      John - 2012-05-16 14:34

      Ya I just wish they would not publish this news. The boneheads from up north work themselves up into a frenzy. They have enough to deal with just being themselves.

      Kenny - 2012-05-16 15:16

      @John - The only boneheads I know is WP supporters.

      frans.visserdsb - 2012-05-17 04:49

      I agree @Byron - decent player. not sure why we did not get hold of guys like Joe Van Niekerk, Schalk Brits, etc. with a squad of 35 players, you have only 2 players for each position, with 5 extras for the high risk positions. so a versatile player like Schalk Brits would be a huge bonus IMHO. 2 or 3 injuries to key players and you could be in trouble...

      Gavin - 2012-05-17 08:06

      I agree with you they could not get any one better,he is available and that is important at htis moment.

  • grant.butler.104 - 2012-05-16 09:51

    This is great news if accurate...My first choice would have been F Louw, but this Joubert is a hard as nails 8 man....exactly what the doctor it !!

  • Master - 2012-05-16 09:57

    This would be great, very good player.

      Master - 2012-05-16 09:58

      Although I won't really trust anything published by "Die Son".

      Saffa - 2012-05-16 10:14

      Minki wants an extended CT break.....I guess.

      Master - 2012-05-16 10:19

      Yeah probably, I mean everything in CT is just so much better. We have clean drinking water, clean streets and decent public facilities. No wonder the folk from up north get so jealous.

      Anton - 2012-05-16 11:21

      @master far from the truth just tavel along the m2 (if you do have a car) between the Airport and the city. Just asking? Secondly the worst service available. The waiters in any of those restaurants think they do you a moerse favour to serve you.

      Saffa - 2012-05-16 11:28

      @Anton - would YOU put on a smiley face if YOU had to serve a chap like YOU? Just asking.......You don't exactly seem to be a ray of frikkin sunshine.

      Anton - 2012-05-16 11:30

      @ Saffa did i speak to you . You are not worthy to be spoken to

      Saffa - 2012-05-16 11:44

      @Anton - Then why didn't you ignore me? Why tell me I'm not worth speaking to, and then SPEAK to me? You bluebottles really do give the term 'mentally challenged' an additional edge. CT hugs xxxxxxx

      pieter.thefuture - 2012-05-16 11:56

      @saffa - the refreshing voice of reason is always worth listening to.

      Master - 2012-05-16 11:59

      Anton, I do have a car. Even the worst of CT is probably equal to the best that the North has to offer. And how dare you disrespect lady Saffa like that? Weren't you tought any manners as a child?

      Anton - 2012-05-16 12:06

      @master just go andread your comment again about everything is clean. Dont change the subjects

      Master - 2012-05-16 12:13

      Did I say "everything is clean"? No, I said "We have clean drinking water, clean streets and decent public facilities". That means in general things are clean around here. I certainly did not change the subject, I stuck with my point, and that is that Cape Town is better than the North. Period. Enough said.

      Jono - 2012-05-16 12:29

      Please, havent you guys learnt not to argue with a retard (in this example @nton)??? he will bring you down to his level and beat you at his own game!!!

      frans.visserdsb - 2012-05-16 12:54

      Please Anton, you really are welcome to leave Cape Town and never return. I think Capetonians are considered rude by some because they are tired of having to put up with arrogant Valies... like yourself.

      Anton - 2012-05-16 13:12

      And you call yourselves friendly and well behaved, just strange when somebody does not accept your opinion you most of you guys here gets personal. Says alot of your upbringing. Andthe best is i do have a number of very good friends and Business Partners down there

      Bergie - 2012-05-16 13:44

      "The waiters in any of those restaurants think they do you a moerse favour to serve you." Anton, if you are from upcountry, then our waiters are doing you a favour by serving you. Show a little respect. Our restaurants in CT feature as the best in SA, by a loooooong shot. They win all the prizes.

      Raymond - 2012-05-16 14:59

      @Anton Dude, I was on holiday in PTA in December with my eleven year old daughter. Her question: "Dad why is it so dirty here?" Her comment: "Dad, the people in PTA are not very friendly". Her other comment: "Dad, the waiters in PTA are not very good" That is from an eleven year old without any prompting from me.

      Kenny - 2012-05-16 15:25

      Ok Ok Ok! I have to agree with the with the WP Gays "sorry guys", it is much nicer there cleaner there everything is better there besides three things. 1.) TROPHEES "Alot of it" 2.) BRANDY witch is much better than that SLEG wine! 3.) And the Bulls have the best rugby culture!

      Master - 2012-05-16 19:49

      Kenny, Kenny, Kenny. I think you should stick to Kenny vs Spenny. Firstly, I am not gay, I have a girlfriend thank you very much, so sorry I am not interested in you. Secondly, I can buy brandy in Cape Town as well (that brandy you're drinking right now is probably made here in the Western Cape). Thirdly, what rugby culture? Drinking and eating biltong all day? And lastly, do you have a broomstick I can borrow? I think you do, "witch" brings me to the end of my point. Thank you very much.

      Anton - 2012-05-17 08:06

      @master dir is seker waar die hele Broomstick storie sy kop uitgesteek het

  • vanrooyenmara - 2012-05-16 09:58

    Shame kan een mens so desperaat wees? Leen maar lekker met die semi en finaal AS julle daar is mag jy nie leen nie, wat van jou Vodacomcup spelers verraaier!!!

      Master - 2012-05-16 10:02

      Mara, teen die tyd wat die semi's aanbreek is Schalk en Duane terug.

      Therealmakoy - 2012-05-16 10:09

      Hey Einstein !! ... teen daai tyd is Schalk en Vermeulen weer terug vir die final.

      LESLIE2311 - 2012-05-16 10:09

      Het jy nie gelees dat die beseerde spelers Julie reg sal wees nie, verstaan jy nie of wil jy net nonsens praat. Ek kan nie verstaan dat ondersteuners so een sydig kan wees soos party van julle nie. Ondersteun alle spanne in SA veral as ander lande betrokke is, (jy kan jou bulle of WP span ondersteun) en kyk rugby met die oog op die toetse wat kom. Daar gaan nie 15 van een span in die bokspan wees nie al dink party mense so. Kom aan dit sal mos lekker wees om weer 'n SA finaal te hê.

      Tokolos - 2012-05-16 10:10

      Hulle gaan nie eers die semi's haal nie. Teen 2 Junie is hulle nie eers in die top 6 nie man!!!

      Saffa - 2012-05-16 10:11

      Unlike your Vodacom Cup players fat Mara, ours are preparing to play in the final this weekend..........

      Master - 2012-05-16 10:13

      Tokolos, soos julle laas jaar nie die semi's gehaal het nie?

      vanrooyenmara - 2012-05-16 10:20

      Ag Shame al kry hulle Tarzan om vir hulle te speel gaan hulle nog steeds nerens kom nie, hulle stel ons al 11 jaar nie teleur nie

      LaBlue - 2012-05-16 10:24

      Goeie hel Mara, hoe verveeld kan 'n ou tannie nou wees? En die WP Vodacom span is in die finaal die naweek, maak nie baie sin om hulle uit te haal nie.

      Saffa - 2012-05-16 10:25

      @FarMaravanRooyen: we CAN still win a cup.......and you CAN win the Weigh less challenge.....but nothing in sport and weight loss is a given, is it now old podge?

      vanrooyenmara - 2012-05-16 10:28

      Tiepies dom streep donkies raak persoonlik as hulle nie weet wat om te se nie LMFGA

      Master - 2012-05-16 10:33

      Bioslim does NOT work. Maybe you should try USN, I mean you can get it for free from your captain Mr. Spies.

      Saffa - 2012-05-16 10:36

      And you say this because you can't think of an intelligent retort fat Mara?

      LaBlue - 2012-05-16 10:39

      @Master, Spies promote net USN, maar hy gebruik eintlik steroids.

      vanrooyenmara - 2012-05-16 10:43

      Snaaks nie een van julle donkies se gevrete wys nie, te skaam?

      Master - 2012-05-16 10:44

      Saffa, they say if you're short you shouldn't retort, but I guess in this case... If you're fat, you won't win an argument with Saffa Cat.

      Master - 2012-05-16 10:47

      Lol LABlue, dis waar wat jy sê. Daai mysterious "siekte" wat hy so paar jaar terug gehad het was eintlik die Bulls wat die waarheid weggesteek het.

      Stormflat - 2012-05-16 10:50

      Saffa is that a Bulls groupie! Mara

      Saffa - 2012-05-16 10:54

      @FatMara - unlike you, we realise that News24 is NOT an internet dating need for pics surely - unless one WANTS to be stalked? Vodacom have finally admitted that there is something cheaper than a 'Please Call Me'......ummmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm. And no my little bucket of lard - this is NOT me being nasty or 'personal' - it's me returning serve......

      LaBlue - 2012-05-16 10:56

      Haha, oookay Mara, glo maar dit as dit jou sal laat beter voel.

      Johan - 2012-05-16 10:58

      So maw julle ysters wat dan terug is kan nie weer baseer word nie. Almal van hulle het bewys hul raklewe is maar kort

      LaBlue - 2012-05-16 11:05

      Mara, jy moet ontspan. Ons almal spot met mekaar hier. Moet nou nie dat dit jou dag omkrap nie. Ek is seker jy lyk beter as wat jy op jou foto lyk.

      vanrooyenmara - 2012-05-16 11:10

      Oue Bloue ek is ontspan niks om oor te stres nie, meer as wat julle kan se

      Saffa - 2012-05-16 11:14

      Why did you change your profile pic FatMara? Is it a little hot in the kitchen? Typical of the COSATUBULLS - throw cement blocks then run for the hills when the opposition fights back.

      vanrooyenmara - 2012-05-16 11:17

      Sif-fa ek wys jou net hoe lyk julle vuilgat kaptein, en jy moet n bril kry as jy dink ek is FATMara jy praat seker nou van jou vrou dis as jy een het, want geen vrou is so simpel nie

      'Witty'Mara - you remind me of those sad sakkies who audition for know the ones who can't sing to save their pitiful asses, but they enter, because mammi and pappi have told them they have talent? Now who was it who told you that you were 'funny/witty/quick on the draw'? Your friends, family? Stick to making comments round the vuur and enjoy the applause you get from the 25 hammered people there.....just don't expect the same adulation here. What is it you always add at the end of your comment LMFGA. Tacky....

      Saffa - 2012-05-16 10:58

      I must apologise @Christo. I am going to be spending a few days in the gutters of these forums, along with the Bulls fans(being nasty, getting personal, attacking anything that doesn't conform to my view on life)......just to see what it is like being an anti-social, knuckledragging garden gnome with hypocritical tendencies.........

      Anton - 2012-05-16 11:44

      @Christo Doen jou n guns en gaan lees bietjie op die blog gedeelte "Boos who in the house" komende van n Stormer ondersteuner

  • annelie.s.nel - 2012-05-16 12:14

    Ai tog die mense, werk soos die Bulls en sommige ander, jy vervang van ondertoe boontoe, as iemand in span bo seerkry haal jy een uit die volgende span en vervang hom met iemand wat op die bench sit in daai span. Dis nie rocket science nie! Leer bietjie van ander geen wonder julle bou al 12 jaar nie. LOL

      LaBlue - 2012-05-16 12:22

      "LOL LOL LOL" lame. Anyways, die WP se Vodacom span speel in die finaal die naweek, so dit sal stupid wees om iemand nou uit te haal daar. Die Bulle kan dit maar doen, want hulle het nie die semi's gehaal nie.

      Anton - 2012-05-16 12:25

      La Blue enigste rede is hoekom WP sapn in final speel oor die swak been waarin hulle gedeel is SUIDELIKE BEEN. wie speel daarin behalwe wp

      Saffa - 2012-05-16 12:29

      The only thing the Bulls en sommige ander can teach us Annelie, is how to drag our knuckles.....and that is sooooooooooo 4 billion years ago. LOL LOL LOL. (wtf is it with these tannies and the way they laugh at their own comments?)

      Anton, Sharks, Pampas (Wat al gewen het), Kings, Boland. Almal okay spanne.

      Anton - 2012-05-16 13:03

      Kings haha oraait spanne se jy vir ons Kom ons praat weer oor die kings volgende jaar. Boland! seker to Divvy daar was

      bennie.vandermerwe.71 - 2012-05-16 13:42

      ja Annelie... promote jou spelers.. Soos Sadie en JJ? Boonop is Steyn en Hougaard ook boorlinge van die Kaap... Let wel, ek se nie WP koop nie spelers nie, net dat jou span dit OOK doen, so moet nou noe vir ons kom snert verkkop nie. Trying to score some cheap points?

      Anton - 2012-05-16 13:48

      @Bennie jy is n expat daarin Aussie land. Was die Kaap so sleg dat jy nie langer daar wou bly nie. Dink nie jy kan enige kommentaar lewer nie. Skree vir die Rebels ou maat

      bennie.vandermerwe.71 - 2012-05-16 19:29

      anton, ek sien jy troll weer en raak boonop raak weer persoonlik.... Wat maak dit saak waar ek bly? My span bly my span, selfs al het hulle 'geen bekers in 11 jaar gewen nie'. En terloops die Rebels is my tweede span, en hulle het amper biltong van jou gemaak 10 dae terug.

      Anton - 2012-05-16 20:58

      Amper wat se die score board, en se sommer gou waar is ek persoonlik. Jy het besluit Kaapstad en Suid Afrika is nie meer vir jou nie so ek is dankbaar jy het n span daar onder gekry

  • Chris - 2012-05-16 12:15

    My bru, ek wil net namens almal praat en vir Tokolos se, my bru ek voel vir jou. Jyt niks vriende nie en geen lewe nie. So djou lewe draai om die website. Ek voel vir jou!

  • annelie.s.nel - 2012-05-16 12:31

    So vir WP is die vodacom cup belangriker as die S15. Dan moet die bulle ook maar weier om Springbokke te stuur in die vervolg as dit ingmeng met ons goed. Jitte net Stormers sal so redeneer.

      Saffa - 2012-05-16 12:40

      @Annelie, most of us would be extremely grateful if the Bulls refused to send players to the Springboks. It would guarantee an effective 8th man for starters.....

  • Stephen - 2012-05-16 12:32

    Oh my word Die Son newspaper, the pinnacle of journalism for Bulls supporters

  • Malcolm - 2012-05-16 12:46

    Hahaha ernst joubert! Good choice! Old paul roos boy. That's as close as a full blood stormer you can get. You may start hating now bulls... Hougaart will soon miss the cape and the sea. He already admitted it. Nothing like a morning surf before practice. Lol

      annelie.s.nel - 2012-05-16 14:32

      So Malcolm hoekom het julle hom nie ontwikkel en toe gebruik nie. Nou wonder nog hoekom sit daar so van julle spelers by die Bulle is. Daar weet hulle hulle kry kans as iemand in die beter span seerkry.

      pieter.thefuture - 2012-05-16 17:14

      @annelie - nou maak jy nie sin nie, as die bulle hul eie mense kans kry as iemand seer kry, wat soek sadie, hougaard, jj, basson, sideshow bob ens, ens, ens daar? Of is hulle almal home grown bulle? As iemand seerkry koop die bulle vinnig iemand anders in hul plek.

      jacques.ackermann - 2012-05-17 11:50

      moet net al die rasiste uit die wp rugby unie uit kry en die talent wat wel hier is reg ontwikkel dan hoef ouens soos ernst en hougie nie ander groener weifelde te soek nie. schalk brits is ook n goeie voorbeeld. moes eers opgaan lions toe om speelkans te kry toe na die tyd wou die wp eers hom gehad het. Wp rugby bestuur is n grap.

      Anton - 2012-05-17 15:45

      @jacques haha nou praat n man wat weet wat in die binnekring aangaan, so is rassie ook weggejaag. So n bek moet Jam kry
