Stormers to take on the Sharks

Reading Time: < 1 minute

The Stormers team to face the Sharks at Newlands on Saturday makes five changes, including Pieter Steph du Toit as captain in place of Siya Kolisi who is out with flu.

Beleaguered coach, Robbie Fleck, says he is only focused on the Sharks and that he will review the season to the Board after the match.

There have only been five wins from 15 matches for the Stormers with no matches won away from home. Fleck is adamant that his team is still motivated.

“It’s really about ending on a high note and a good send off for the guys who are leaving us. We always motivated to play against the Sharks, especially at Newlands. It’s obviously been a disappointing season for us and we need to end off on a strong note.”

Kolisi will be missed but will enjoy the rest after playing almost nonstop rugby for either the Stormers or the Springboks.

“The main thing I can do is to try and do my job and lead by example on the field and try and motivate the guys the way I play, I learnt a lot from the Boks as well.”
