Now that things have settled down off-field, the Stormers need to start making a statement on the field in this year’s Super Rugby tournament.
And they can start doing so on Friday night at Newlands when they host the Jaguares.
The Argentines are a tough team to beat in their own backyard, but look like an outfit that throws caution to the wind on the road - evidence of this could be found in their try-fest defeat to the Lions this past weekend.
It’s the perfect team to be coming to Cape Town this weekend as the Stormers will look to get into gear on the attack.
Yes, they have won two from three matches to date, but it hasn’t been the most entertaining performances by the team.
They failed to score a single try in their 40-3 opening weekend defeat to the Bulls and then had to wait until the final minute of the match against the Lions for their first, and only, try of the match via Herschel Jantjies.
Then in last weekend’s win over the Sharks, they could only cross the whitewash via a Damian Willemse intercept try.
Tries are what it’s all about and that’s what fans want to see when they make the effort to go to stadiums for live rugby.
And the Stormers better start delivering on this I mean Rieko Ioane scored more tries on his own in one match this past weekend - he scored four for the Blues in their win over the Sunwolves - than the entire Stormers squad has scored in three games thus far.
