Taute set on Stormers move

2012-10-11 12:40

Cape Town - It looks like Jaco Taute has made up his mind in his deliberation over where to play his Super Rugby next year, with the Stormers set to beat off the interests of the Sharks and the Bulls in the new Springbok.

According to the website, the Cape Times quoted Taute’s agent Eduard Kelder on Thursday as saying that Cape Town was where the 21-year-old would head at the end of this season as he looks to further his education in big rugby after showing great promise for the Lions, who have been relegated from Super Rugby.

“Jaco has decided that WP is the place to that he really wants to go to. We are just busy negotiating to come to the desirable terms, which we are very close to coming to,” said Kelder.

Taute can play fullback or centre, with the latter position being where he made his debut for the Boks against Australia at Loftus two weeks ago.

However he is likely to be considered mostly as a fullback by the Stormers.

The youngster should be the fourth player currently with the Lions who will be playing for the Stormers next year. Flyhalf Elton Jantjies, also a new Springbok, is set to sign a loan agreement similar to Taute’s, which should mean the players link up with the Lions again after Super Rugby.

It’s a different story with Bok prop Pat Cilliers and the Lions’ former Sharks loose forward Michael Rhodes, both of whom have signed two-year contracts with the Cape union.

      Nope, he will play fullback,Taute will replace the midget Joe Pietersen

      ekhaat.weepee - 2012-10-11 13:14

      BlouMasjien1 - 2012-10-11 15:21

      They also wanted Joe Pietersen in the bok squad

      jaco.groenewald.731 - 2012-10-11 15:44

      Ja Joe and JdJ an Peter was the best in the world, but then they heard they can get Elton, and Taute!!!!

      joneethling - 2012-10-11 16:50

      Taute will warm the bench, sometimes.

  • bfvillet - 2012-10-11 12:52

    fullback fullback is his position

      seanread.crisp - 2012-10-11 13:55

      Nice!! 10. Jantjies(hopefully) 11. Habs 12. Brache/JdV 13. Jdj/du Plessis 14. Aplon 15. Taute. Thats a hot looking backline! Hopefully it'll add to our boring ass gameplan and the backs will start playing some running rugby! We can but hope.....

      en en en bolla op 9???

  • gavin.ray.102 - 2012-10-11 12:54

    Thats right, lets pool all our talent into one team and let them sit bench for most of the season. Lions relegation, worst decision ever!!! apart from Mr & Mrs Malema deciding to have a child

      arnold.coetzee - 2012-10-11 13:07

      He is actually a nice kid -Rathanang

  • terry.burne - 2012-10-11 12:56

    Hey Coetzee - wouldn't it just be cheaper to go out and buy the S15 cup! With all of the players that you guys have bought over the past years, and you still haven't won the damned cup - just buy the cup instead!

      paul.sdoow - 2012-10-11 13:48

      so that's why the bulls got three already cause they cheap!

      macziekpk - 2012-10-11 15:50

      They're only cheap because you don't have any. The currie cup is cheap, and you don't even have one of those in the last decade.

  • spear.tackle.7 - 2012-10-11 13:30

    Where else will he get a starting position @centre or @fullback????

      ekhaat.weepee - 2012-10-11 13:51


      macziekpk - 2012-10-11 15:51

      jaco.groenewald.731 - 2012-10-11 15:46

      jaan.vanschaick - 2012-10-12 09:57

      IF there is a Watson in charge, nevermind following their lead - WATCH YOUR BACK!!!!!

  • michaal.dejager - 2012-10-11 13:43

    Taute at 15. JdV and JdJ our centers. Taute at 15 and Lambie at 10 is best for the Bokke as well.

      paul.sdoow - 2012-10-11 14:44

      if any combination of the pool i would retire jdv and have jdj then du ples and taute at full back . only thing then who kicks for posts? if elton only on loan for super ? where joe P can kick .

      macziekpk - 2012-10-11 15:52

      Twenty metre Peter??.?.?

  • luke.sportify - 2012-10-11 14:59

    The sooner SARU contract all players the better Top teams get stronger and the weaker sides get weaker The EC need to be able to sign top players or else their inclusion is a complete waste of time great work SARU...bunch of muppets

      jaco.groenewald.731 - 2012-10-11 15:50

      Dis al klaar n complete waste of time!!!!!!

    Does Blou Johnny have a brain? all his comments are one of a illiterate person. maybe his name should be blue balls cause no female in their right mind would date such a idiot let alone him getting laid.

      jaan.vanschaick - 2012-10-12 09:51

      Mr Mathews does your responce not put you in the same category as your "beloved" Blou Johnny??

  • lance.hampson - 2012-10-11 17:24

    Please please please news 24 you made us have to log into facebook to make a comment, why why the posts have become so so stale the same thing over and over again. Every time i have to read blou.johnny he makes the same statement with every posting he uses the words chokers, losers, cupless etc.. in every posting he makes yet you don't delete his brainless posts. Your comment section used to be entertaining i used to have a good laugh at some of them and now you only have people like blou.johnny you have chased away the interesting comments and now we only have the same boring people brainless people like blou.johnny, it is unbelieveable how the comment section has gone down to this low level and yet you let this continue. Please news24 go back to the old system where any joesoap can make a comment all we have nowdays are the blou.johnny's of the world, have you not noticed this? Don't you people have board meetings where you talk about these type of things?

      spyker.oflanagan - 2012-10-11 18:14

      Ai, die blou.Johnny darem.

    Does this mean de Jong will move down the pecking order?

      spear.tackle.7 - 2012-10-11 18:22


      jaan.vanschaick - 2012-10-12 09:56

      JdJ will become the WP bench warmer - the same JdJ that every "striped whiner" promoted for inclusion in the Bok team the last 8 months.

  • jaan.vanschaick - 2012-10-12 09:46

    STORMER24 again shows their journalistic favouritism. Taute’s move to WP is hailed as an “excellent decision” even though WP has a host of young talent in both 15 and 13 position. On the same page STORMER24 “TRASHES” Callie Visagie’s decision to join the Bulls because the Bulls, according to STORMER24, has enough hookers!! VERY CONSISTENT IN THEIR REPORTING.
