Fleck wants improvement from Stormers

Date published: March 13 2017

Although his side scored six tries in their away win over the Kings on Saturday, Stormers boss Robbie Fleck is still looking for improvement from his troops.

The Stormers have won all three their matches so far this season and are currently at the top of the South African Group, four points ahead of their nearest rivals the Sharks.

But despite that, Fleck feels his side can perform better in some aspects of their game and said he is not totally satisfied yet.

“A bit frustrated with our performance,” he told Sport24 when asked about their overall effort.

“There were moments where we were really good and dominant and just frustration that we didn’t convert more than we should have.

“The game was never in doubt and once we got that lead it was never going to be in doubt, but I would have liked for us to kick on a bit more.

“There were stages there where we could have, but we probably let ourselves down with an error or two.”

The Stormers are employing a more attacking game-plan and Fleck said the errors his side were making could be attributed to their fast-paced style of play.

“It’s where we’re going… we’re going to put ourselves under pressure with a bit more high risk,” he added.

“I’m pleased with overall outcome and the bonus point,” he said.

“We want to keep ball-in-hand and we want to put teams under pressure.

“There was a lot of line breaks from our side but we were just a little bit late on the clean which stopped our momentum.”
