Stormers to stick with plan

    Cape Town - Stormers coach Allister Coetzee says they won't prepare any special plans for the Waratahs' danger men in their Super Rugby clash in Sydney on Saturday.

    The Waratahs demolished the kings 72-10 in Port Elizabeth last week, scoring 11 tries in the process.

    Their fullback, Israel Folau, won 199m in territory with 15 spectacular runs, while flyhalf Bernard Foley (123m with 7 runs), left wing Peter Betham (92 with 8), lock Sitaleki Timani (89 with 14), right wing Cam Crawford (86 with 7), and No 8 Wycliff Palu (77 with 10) all contributed to the PE massacre.

    However, Coetzee told Die Burger's website his side will rather focus on their own game and bank on a sound defensive game plan.

    "We just have to stick to the structures that work for us and make sure we make our one-on-one tackles," said the coach.

    Coetzee, whose side suffered a narrow 18-17 loss to the Blues last Friday, said the key will be to improve their accuracy.

    "It's actually amazing how many opportunities we created. We squandered a lot of chances. Our defence is still very good and things went well in the set pieces."

    The Stormers are currently languishing in 10th spot on the overall Super Rugby log and lie fourth in the South African conference.

    The clash in Sydney kicks off at 11:40 (SA time) on Saturday.
