Stormers eager for Jaguares test

Date published: January 25 2016

The Stormers are looking forward to testing themselves against Super Rugby newcomers Jaguares in their pre-season friendly at Newlands on February 13.

Their first pre-season friendly will be against the South Western District Eagles in George on Saturday, January 30.

Stormers head coach Robbie Fleck believes that the two pre-season fixtures should give the squad a good opportunity to execute what they have been working on in training.

"It has been a tough pre-season conditioning phase, so it will be good to see what sort of progress we have made when we face the Eagles and the Jaguares," Fleck said.

“After these two games we hope to have a clear idea of where we are, so that come the start of Super Rugby we have a squad who are match ready.

"It will be good to go back to George where we enjoyed great support from the public on our training camp, before facing a potent Jaguares side back home at Newlands.

“The Jaguares have the potential to surprise a lot of people this season, so it will be a great test for us to ensure we are ready to make a strong start to the competition."
