Vermeulen back in training

2012-07-19 14:53

Cape Town - The Stormers have been boosted with loose forward Duane Vermeulen back in training for the first time since injuring his knee against the Reds in April.

Stormers coach Allister Coetzee said Vermeulen will be assessed on Thursday before a decision on his availability for their semi-final will be taken.

Flyhalf Gary van Aswegen is also back after a lengthy injury layoff.

"Both Duane Vermeulen and Gary van Aswegen are back in training today - they have both worked really hard, Duane will be assessed tomorrow," said Coetzee.

The Stormers have a home semi-final next weekend after they finished top of the overall Super Rugby log for the first time in their history.

    Wonderful news indeed......if he is not ready for the semis don't push him,HM needs him for the Castle Championship(4 nations)....go Duane:):)

      jason.children - 2012-07-19 15:25

      Im glad he is back Lionel! He will probably start from the bench though! get a good 20 minutes in the semis and if we win he will start the final????? time will tell!

      cape.maori - 2012-07-19 15:29

      @Lionel and Jason - are you two married or in a special relationship? Just wondering.

      lionel.kemm.9 - 2012-07-19 15:29

      Me to boet,couldnt have come at a better time.

      lionel.kemm.9 - 2012-07-19 15:32

      Jealous, Maori???

      johan.spies.18 - 2012-07-19 15:36

      @lionel No thanks, the Boks can do without that moron. We'd like to play some intelligent rugby and win a few games

      cape.maori - 2012-07-19 15:39

      @Lionel - no ways! Must be a special relationship!

      @Jason Is that a "ha" from each of your chins?

      tom.tardis - 2012-07-19 23:55

      i dont think its right to insult people based on their lack of aesthetics but that was hilarious a "ha" for every chin! f*** i havent laughed like that since aplon went all marionette on us last week

      johan.spies.18 - 2012-07-20 04:02

      @Tom 2 of his chins still have to report though, i only counted 12 "ha's"

  • johan.spies.18 - 2012-07-19 15:09

    BWA HA HA HA , die domste plank wat ooit op die planeet geloop het. Glo die enigste mens met 'n negatiewe IK. Wat 'n plank

      cape.maori - 2012-07-19 15:14

      Please keep quiet! You don't make sense, at all!

      master.payne.73 - 2012-07-19 15:15

      Ek dink jy spel jou van verkeerd. Die "i" moes 'n "o" gewees het.

      Stormkaap - 2012-07-19 15:19

      Nie dommer as you namesake nie!!

      cape.maori - 2012-07-19 15:21

      Boys and girls, please stop the name calling! Talk rugby or voetsek!

      johan.spies.18 - 2012-07-19 15:21

      @Stormkaap Enigste in die wereld met 'n negatiewe IK. Die mediese wereld staan tou om navorsing op die bobbejaan te doen. Ou Duane, shame

      johan.spies.18 - 2012-07-19 15:25

      @dronk Isak Om sy kar te was ja

      chris.groenewald.56 - 2012-07-19 15:34

      Johan, waarop baseer jy jou bewering dat hy dom is. Ek het hom ontmoet en lekker gesels en die "dom" tag wat jy hom gee is nie gegrond nie. Baie vriendelike persoon en geensins dom nie. Kan ons n ontmoeting reel dan kan hom persoonlik se dat hy dom is?

      johan.spies.18 - 2012-07-19 15:38

      @Chris BWA HA, ek kan indink die geselsie wat jy en hy gehad het. Jy gaan self nie exactly 'n nuwe IK grens daar stel nie. En reel asseblief die ontmoeting, ek sal graag daai boodskappie aan Plank Vermeulen oordra

      Stirrer - 2012-07-19 15:47

      Chris, jy mors jou asem. Die lafaard kruip in Kanada weg.

      lablue.phoenix - 2012-07-19 16:47

      Die Johan ou is 'n pateet. Hy het geen vriende nie, so hy mors sy tyd op elke liewe Stormers artikel.

      johan.spies.18 - 2012-07-19 16:51

      @lablue.phoenix "I'm a pro wrestler, rockstar and crime fighter. I aslo design and develop websites in my free time." BWA HA HA HA HA HA , wat stoei jy, springkane?

      cf.coetzee.3 - 2012-07-20 02:08

      Johan die kans is goed sy IK is meer as wat joune is!

      johan.spies.18 - 2012-07-20 04:00

      @cf Foeitog oubaas se honne, jy uit jou bewsyming wakker geword?

      deon.fouche.3 - 2012-07-20 09:54

      @CF...Die kanse is 110% beter want johantjie het nie n ik nie!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • master.payne.73 - 2012-07-19 15:09

    Can YOU tackle Duane Vermeulen????!!!!

      johan.spies.18 - 2012-07-19 15:11

      master.payne.73 - 2012-07-19 15:20

      johan.spies.18 - 2012-07-19 15:27

      @master Wees nou eerlik, dink jy Duane sal ooit 'n breinchirurg kan wees. Toe man se nou wat jy rerig dink, check net bietjie daai gesig van die perd, die domgeid STRAAL uit hom uit

      master.payne.73 - 2012-07-19 16:03

      Regtig nou? Dink jy nou jy kan 'n breinchirurg wees?

      master.payne.73 - 2012-07-19 16:03

      How can the trophy call Newlands "home" if it has never been there?

      chester.tobias.3 - 2012-07-19 17:00

      @koos,Newlands is the home of Rugby

      tom.tardis - 2012-07-19 18:09

      how is newlands the home of rugby, thought that was rugby school in england

  • allblacksfanatic - 2012-07-19 15:35

    Who's Duane Vermeulen??? Never heard of the chap, what's all the fuss about!!! Now if you talk about Sonny Bill Williams or even just use the acronymn (SBW) then everybody knows who we talkin bout!!! #JustaThought

      cape.maori - 2012-07-19 15:42

      Let us show respect to the opposition mate! These stormer fans become very aggressive with the Saders supporters at Newlands. Let us not solicit more violence from them! Go Crusaders!!

      koos.vantollen - 2012-07-19 15:48

      SBW is overrated. He doesn't even hit rucks

      lionel.kemm.9 - 2012-07-19 15:49

      Hahahahahahahahahahahahahaha,check Maori trying to talk like a Kiwi,whats with the 'mate''

      cape.maori - 2012-07-19 15:54

      @Lionel - I cannot call you "mate" - rather "meit"!! LOL

      lionel.kemm.9 - 2012-07-19 15:56

      @Maori,call me what you like but that was kek funny:):)

      over rated - doesnt hit rucks

  • sharksfever.sharks - 2012-07-19 16:12

    I like Vermeulen. Good player. A little bit of a dirty player as he like slapping and pushing okes but plays hard. I don't really see him in the Springbok setup though. Too many other great loosies in this country.

  • jono.qmann - 2012-07-19 16:22

    wow the jealousy runs deep in the bulls veins! I think Duan must start on the bench! he is not match fit yet and i think the 3 that played last week together did a good job and obviously Maori didnt watch the first 10seconds of last weeks game...who got us a penalty Maori in the first 10 seconds??? come up and say his name!!! and that was one of plenty! next time dont type every silly idea that pops into that head of yours! Duanne moet laaste 20min op kom sodat hy n bietjie game time kan kry!

    Show pony Spies must be a worried man

      john.edwards.733450 - 2012-07-19 16:56

      Why ? I think Kanako & Daniels being in good form is more of a worry to Spies . Really the only people that rate this guy are zzzstormerzzzz supporters . He never features in a game except when he's being disciplined?

      lionel.kemm.9 - 2012-07-19 17:00

      Random,if you get with the times you will see that HM rates him bigtime.

      john.edwards.733450 - 2012-07-19 17:19

      I've heard mention of that in the comments but that's it . And even if he does rate him it's a question of does he rate him more than Spies, Kanko & Daniels .. My magic 8 ball says no

      tom.tardis - 2012-07-19 20:59

      How can hm rate a guy who has been out all season. He will be useless when he returns, even more so because he hasn't played all year. This guy is to stormers supporters what sbw is to mitchells plain. He is newlands' marcus Aurelius. Why? I have no idea either. He is an under effective bruiser

  • Eddie.Minora - 2012-07-19 16:52

    mooi man! bly Duane is terug!!

  • marius.potgieter.39 - 2012-07-19 17:00

    Good news !!! Can't wait for him to take his rightful place in springbok team !!
