Gelant blows it for the Stormers

An idiotic Gelant charge down inside the Benetton 22, with the Stormers 3 points behind with minutes to play. This follows a bunch of idiotic kicks. And  ends with him kicking into the head of his own player on the goal line.

Another player who looks like a total nothing burger out there is Roos….perhaps this was one of Harrassmiss good calls. 

The step down in intensity seems less of an issue than the inaccuracy of both teams. The ref also seems to be tolerating far  more technical infractions than we saw at the WC. It almost looks like the Currie Cup.

another glass half empy post...

Half is too much…that Gelant performance wasn’t more than a third of a glass. Did you watch the game?

Saw a bit of the second half Dweeba couldn't find his jumpers. Lost lineout ball near Benneton line.

Need the Boks back!

Gelant had an awful game

What the hell you on about re Roos he was solid

What on earth did he do wrong?

Nov 12, 2023, 13:25

Nothing wrong as far as I could see….but he just had no impact. He tried hard, but just doesn’t seem able to impose himself. He isn’t a monster like Wiese, he needs to be playing looser….honing his carrying in space, offloading and fetching. Right now he looks a bit lost.

Well he does not have the raw power of Wiese but is certainly physical enough to impose himself

Unfortunately Wiese slipped down the scale this WC, looked pretty ordinary and stupid at times

Roos has not risen to the heights of his pre injury but it’s early days yet

Roos is our future at 8, Wiese is not - he is literally dumb muscle

Agree on Wiese. He’s an effort player, which works at club level. At test level everybody is in the red zone and he isn’t that special. Roos I’m not sure about.

I’m very sure about Roos - he has shown some special stuff but the injury threw him a bit. This next season is big for him

Well any Springbok team with Fassi, Dweeba, Gelant and Libby in it is a sure way to defeat.

Not international standard players.....provincal at best, simple.

Bullshit AJ bullshit

Gelant is a good option at 15, but he didn't have a good match this weekend.
