Wiese returns for Stormers tour

Sun, 16 Apr 2017 13:47

TEAM ANNOUNVEMENT: Fiery loose forward Cobus Wiese has recovered from injury and will join the Stormers on their three-match tour of New Zealand.

Wiese missed the past weekend's 16-29 loss to the Lions - the Stormers first defeat of the Super Rugby season - with a shoulder injury.

Wiese picked up the injury in the win over the Chiefs the week before.

Wiese was named by coach Robbie Fleck in a 27-man squad for their upcoming tour to New Zealand.

The Stormers will face the Crusaders, Highlanders and Hurricanes on their three-week tour of New Zealand, which is the first time they have visited the country since 2015.

With six wins from their seven games this season, the Stormers currently top Africa Conference One, 16 log points ahead of their nearest challengers, the Vodacom Bulls.

Fleck said that the squad is looking forward to the challenge of playing three games in New Zealand.

"As a group we enjoy touring together and we know that we will be seriously tested against some quality teams in New Zealand," Fleck said.

"The players have embraced the challenge and we are keen to make the most of our time together on tour, which should bring us even closer together," he added.

Stormers touring squad: Bjorn Basson, Nizaam Carr, Kurt Coleman, Jan de Klerk, Pieter-Steph du Toit, Dan du Plessis, Robert du Preez, Dewaldt Duvenage, Eben Etzebeth, JC Janse van Rensburg, Oliver Kebble, Cheslin Kolbe, Siya Kolisi, Dan Kriel, Dillyn Leyds, Wilco Louw, Frans Malherbe, SP Marais, Bongi Mbonambi, Sikhumbuzo Notshe, Ramone Samuels, Shaun Treeby, Chris van Zyl, Alistair Vermaak, Jano Vermaak, EW Viljoen, Cobus Wiese.
