It is do or die for the Stormers and the Sharks on Saturday, when the two teams meet in a Super Rugby game at Newlands, knowing that whoever wins the game will qualify for the quarter-finals of the tournament.
In what is virtually a knockout game, the two South African franchises will be gunning for a win and a chance to continue in the tournament.
Stormers utility back Dillyn Leyds says that they will not be changing too many things for this crunch game, and they will stick to what has worked for them this season.
Having switched back from wing to fullback in the last game, Leyds says he does not mind where he plays in the back three.
Leyds is aware that the Sharks’ tactical kicking game could be dangerous, but he is confident that the backline will be suitably prepared.
For a few of the Stormers current players, Saturday will be emotional, as it could be their final game at Newlands, and even Leyds’ future is not certain. – Report by Rob Delport
