Stormers coach Allister Coetzee insists his team will be ready for the Super Rugby Finals Series, even if they are on the road.

Already assured of topping the South African conference, the Stormers need both the Brumbies and the Waratahs to lose this weekend if they are to have any chance of securing a home semi-final.

If either Australian team wins this weekend, against the Crusaders and Reds respectively, the Stormers will face a home qualifier before travelling to Australia in a potential semi-final.

But while travelling teams generally struggle in Super Rugby play-offs, Coetzee believes his team will be up for the challenge.

"For us its always been nice to tour, we don't worry about where we play and who we play," Coetzee said at a Stormers press conference.
 
"We have been under the cosh in Wellington and this team stood up and we almost pulled that off.
 
"After that we went to the Waratahs and pulled it off and turned everything around.
 
"If that is the route we have to go so be it."
