Stormers set to attack in Super Rugby

Date published: December 4 2015

Although the Stormers are still without a head coach, they will not deviate from their decision to implement an attacking game-plan next year.

Eddie Jones was set to oversee their transformation into one of the most dangerous teams in Super Rugby. 

But although Jones opted to leave his position as Stormers head coach to take charge of England's national team, the  Cape Town-based outfit will stick to their new attacking philosophy.

They are implementing the new game-plan at training under the watchful eye of director of rugby Gert Smal and attack coach Robbie Fleck.

"We've taken a slightly different approach to pre-season, I'd say," said scrum-half Nic Groom.

"There is a lot more ball-in-hand stuff and a lot of running as well.

"As a young side the guys want to throw the ball around a bit. That's the traditional way of Cape Town and Stormers style," added hooker Scarra Ntubeni.

"(Fleck) Fleckie has really emphasised that this year we're going to throw the ball around and look to play some exciting rugby."
