COACH: Nollis Marais

Already out of the running to reach the playoffs, coach Nollis Marais says they needed the win over the Sharks last weekend. 

Marais, whose side will face the Stormers in the final week before the quarterfinals, says: “We needed a good win. 

“We sat down after what happened before the break and saw where we made mistakes and spoke about rectifying them. 

“And the fact that we are no longer in it, we needed to create something else for the guys to play for.”
