Seven Stormers stars have been included in our Super Rugby Unlocked Team of the Week after the Cape side crushed the Cheetahs 30-13 on Saturday night, writes Quintin van Jaarsveld.
It wasn’t the farewell the franchise had hoped for in terms of the beloved stadium being empty due to the Covid-19 pandemic, but Steven Kitshoff and company delivered on the pitch to ensure a victorious Newlands swansong, which moved the Stormers up to second place on the log.
The Sharks, meanwhile, had to pull a rabbit out of the hat to sneak past a game Griquas side in Kimberley on Friday night, the Durban side staging a dramatic comeback to snatch a 34-33 victory at the death, with Curwin Bosch again being the hero.
The flyhalf is one of four Sharks players in our side, with Griquas and the Cheetahs each contributing two standouts to our team. The catfight between the Lions and Pumas at Ellis Park was postponed after positive coronavirus cases in the men from Mpumalanga’s camp, while the log-leading Bulls had a bye.
