Allister Coetzee today named a squad to take on the Boland Cavaliers in the first preparation game of the season in Wellington on Saturday (15h45).
“We are currently training with a very big squad and I want to utilise this first game to take a look at some of the younger and new players in the set-up. Of course there are a few of the seasoned guys there as well. We will look to be cutting the squad in the next week or two and there are a great number of players pushing hard for consideration. This warm up game is crucial to our continued preparation.” said the coach. “As always when we play our neighbours Boland we expect a tough and physical outing against them. They proved their credentials last year and there are definitely a few of the players that will be looking to catch the eye of the Stormers coaches. ”
