    "King Carlos" to be welcomed back into Super Rugby with an earth-moving, mind-blowing, heart-pulsating, bone-crunching, spine-chilling tackle from you know who....... :D

    My prediction: Stormers by 16

    Your prediction wasn't far off.

    Did nobody watch this game ?
    I only got to see the first half, where the Stormers were all over the Lions in every possible way, but apparently the Lions then turned it into wild
    sevens styled run anything and everything game with no structure in the second half. So I guess I'm kinda glad I missed that.

    Apparently our Defense was quite good again, which is what I like to hear since we generally have a great defense every year.

    It was nice to see Jacque Fourie score his first "official" try for the Stormers in his first real game (pre season matches don't count for squat anyway), and Habana did well I think in his first game for us.

    Wanted to see the game but didn't find time for it.
    Seems I missed a lot.

    The Stormers looked dangerous with ball in hand and defended brilliantly when it was on for the Lions. Fell a bit off the pace in the second half but that was largely due to the way the ref blowed the game IMO; pedantic like hell so the guys kinda stopped pushing the rules. Still, thought the guys should have done better to close out a game they were dominating up until then. Hopefully the Stormers' forwards can adapt quickly to the new way of enforcing the laws as we got precious little turn-over ball.

    Looking good in the back with depth to boot but what I was most happy with was that JC Kritzinger held his own against a pretty decent Lions scrum when Blaauw went off injured. Alot of players still injured for the Stormers and will only strengthen us when coming in.

    At times I felt I was watching league; not too taken with the new rule enforcements.

    I heard somewhere that Spencer was taken off at half-time because he isn't fit enough.

    Yes but its understaable taking into account the incredable pace the game was played at almost everywhere this round with the new enforcement of breakdown rules, at altitude, he is used to NH rugby and is old.

    And because he was almost be-headed by Burger, like I predicted!

    That was a ridiculous call though, burger was on his haunches for goodness sake, if he had gone any lower he would have been on his ass, Carlos simply fell into him, silly little flyhalf.

    I also deny any eye-gouging from you know who.
