The Stormers have received a double boost ahead of the weekend’s derby against the Southern Kings at Newlands.

The Stormers have received a double boost ahead of the weekend’s derby against the Southern Kings at Newlands.

Stormers coach Allister Coetzee confirmed that hooker-cum-flank Deon Fourie and lock De Kock Steenkamp will be available to face the Kings on Saturday.

“Deon and De Kock have reacted well to treatment this past week and will be considered for the Kings match,” said Coetzee.

Fourie (ribs) missed the Reds match, after soldiering on bravely on tour against the Rebels, whilst Steenkamp picked up a chest injury against the Blues on May 3.

There are also no fresh injury worries in the Stormers camp, meaning the entire matchday 22 from the 20-15 win over Reds game will be up for selection against the Kings on Saturday.

“We have a few bumps and bruises from the Reds match – but nothing serious, nothing which will rule anyone out of the Kings game,” said Coetzee.

“It’s a big positive,” he added, “given the massive amount of injuries we’ve had to deal with this year.”

Utility forward Hilton Lobberts trained with the squad but will only be available for the Currie Cup.

The Stormers are still without – amongst others – hooker Scarra Ntubeni (hamstring), props Pat Cilliers (ankle) and Frans Malherbe (ankle), lock Andries Bekker (back), flank Rynhardt Elstadt (knee), No.8 Duane Vermeulen (knee), flyhalf Peter Grant (ankle) and centre Juan de Jongh (finger).
