The Stormers are excited to welcome back Springbok squad members Marvin Orie and Salmaan Moerat to their second row.
Having recently returned from national duty in the UK, alongside Damian Willemse, forwards coach Rito Hlungwane is over the moon to have the two lineout jumpers available for Saturday’s match at Cape Town Stadium against Italy visitors Zebre.
Hlungwane says: “It’s quite exciting to have them back - they are two different players.
“Marvin is experienced in the lineouts, but he hasn’t played in a while and I hope he’s not rusty…”
Of what they expect of Zebre on the weekend, Hlungwani adds: “We looked at the games they played in the United Rugby Championship and we understand their DNA - how they want to play and how they want to attack.
“We prepared for how they played in the URC and friendlies - that has given us a lot of information.”
