My biggest Independent Media rant from the weekend is about the Stormers lack of lineout capability and functional intelligence.
It is one thing to want to entertain and quite another to self-destruct. No team can function without a lineout set piece that works and no team has ever won Super Rugby without a world class No 10. The Stormers currently have neither. The on-field actions in those awful first 20 minutes in Christchurch were a damning indictment of the hollow speak coming from the Stormers leadership. The functional intelligence of the Stormers was as absent in the opening quarter against the Crusaders as it was in the horror last two minutes against the Waratahs in Sydney.
Read my column on IOL to find out my other rants on the Stormers’ nature of under-achieving and the continued sub-parr officiating of Super Rugby.
