The Stormers were hammered and humbled in their previous game against the Highlanders. The Cape side leaked five tries and lost the game 39-21, but what was most concerning was their lack of intensity at the point of contact.
They will be boosted this week by the return of their skipper Duane Vermeulen, who was rested last week. Another Springbok in Eben Etzebeth is also set to start, and the duo should lend the Stormers more grunt at the collisions and breakdowns.
But can they turn things around after such a heavy defeat? And in the space of six days?
The odds are certainly against them bouncing back. They will be up against the form side of the tournament, the Hurricanes, who currently top the overall log and have won all six of their matches this season.
What should concern the Stormers is that the Hurricanes have played the most balanced and effective brand of rugby. They are statistically among the best attacking and defending sides in this year’s tournament. They have the strength of collective as well as the individual game-breakers to beat any team.
The Hurricanes will also be boosted this week by the return of several big names. Much has been made about the inclusion of wing Julian Savea, as well as Ma’a Nonu’s 150th Vodacom Super Rugby match. But the key to their success will be the performance of the pack, and how Barrett translates that potential dominance into points.
The Stormers have produced some powerful scrummaging performances in 2015, but have struggled to use that dominance to good effect. Last week, they were outplayed at the collisions and breakdowns. They can’t afford to lose in these areas against a team like the Hurricanes. The Canes are hard to stop when they keep the ball through the phases, and even more dangerous when they force a turnover and counter-attack with their backs.
