The present scenario is that the Stormers and WP are in fact in chaos because of poor management and maladministration. The Union is rule by the amateur clubs aiming to help themselves rather than to deal with the present professional era.
Since 2016 the Stormers lost 36 players of franchise level, amongst them prominent Springboks and World Cup winners, They totally mismanaged the Pollard situation years earlier, In desperation they turned for help to Remgro and Rupert help them with a lone of R40 million. Instead of listening to his advice - they fumbled again and has not repaid Rupert a scent since then. Rupert suggested that he would take a shareholding of 74,5% in the franchise and thus ensure that the shenanigans of the past are stopped, but the Stormers refused.
He and his partner Motsepe then took the 74,5% shareholding in the Bulls and the situation now is that the Bulls have the money to prevent large scale leaving by players and simuitaneously have the capacity to losing players eased this year and they are even getting players back who left.
Fact is that WP Rugby remains in trouble and the only reasonable thing to do is to find another Rupert and Motsepe alliance to get the Stormers back on its feet and ensure they are managed like a professional franchise should be handled. Get professionals to handle the job - not amateurs,
