Stormers not taking Force lightly
Cape Town - Stormers forwards coach Russell Winter said
there will be no room for complacency when they face the Western Force in Perth
on Saturday (13:55 SA time).
While the 57 points scored against the Rebels in Melbourne
last weekend was a Stormers franchise record, Winter believes nothing can be
taken for granted and the focus within the team is making another step up on
Earlier in the season, the Stormers were accused of underestimating
their opponents when they surprisingly drew 17-all against the lowly Sunwolves
"There is going to be zero complacency from us, we have
just got to make sure that we do our job and we improve every week," Winter
told the Stormers' official website.
"We are going to have to be very clinical in our
approach if we want to improve on last week’s performance."
A win in Perth on Saturday would guarantee a home playoff at
Newlands, but Winter said the squad is determined not to be distracted by
anything as they seek to continue building momentum.
"We have put complete focus on ourselves, we don’t want
to worry about who is below us on the log, we just want to make sure that we
win all of our remaining games," he added.
"Every game from now on in is a must-win game for us.
"If we want to achieve our goals, we have to make sure
we win all of our remaining games."
Winter said whilst it was encouraging to score seven tries
against the Rebels, there are still some areas which can improve, and which
they have been working hard on in training this week.
“We want to build on this team, our culture and the way we
want to play and let them (opposition) worry about us," he explained.
“We realise that we were a little bit weak in some areas of
our game and we have given that some good attention.”
