ON A MISSION: Stormers captain Siya Kolisi focused

The Stormers will face the Chiefs in their Super Rugby quarterfinal clash at Newlands on Saturday (5pm).
In a repeat of last year’s last-eight match, the Stormers will go all out to make sure history doesn’t repeat itself.

In 2016, the Chiefs hammered coach Robbie Fleck’s men 60-21 in their own backyard.

And while they have since beaten the New Zealanders in their round-robin clash at Newlands earlier this year (34-26), captain Siya Kolisi says he will never forget the horror show that was last year’s quarters.

After beating the Bulls 41-33 in their final regular-season match at Loftus on Saturday, Kolisi explains: “It will be a totally different challenge [against the Chiefs] - we’ve got to win.

“[There are] positive vibes [in the squad] going forward [after two solid wins in the build-up to the match].

“Everything we’ve done leading up to this means nothing if we don’t turn up [on Saturday].

“[Last year’s result] should be motivation, it should encourage you and make you want to play even more.

“I will never forget what happened last year, but I don’t want it to happen again.”
