Groom debuts as Stormers secure home semi final

UCT’s Varsity Cup-winning scrumhalf Nic Groom celebrated his Super Rugby debut for the Stormers after coming off the bench in Saturday’s crucial clash against the Cheetahs in Bloemfontein.

The Ikey Tigers and Western Province No.9 has been knocking on the Stormers door for some time now and an 11th hour injury to Dewaldt Duvenage has given him his big – and well-deserved – chance.

Groom added some neat touches when he came on with twenty minutes to go and it is likely the Super stage will see more of the talented youngster in the future.

The Stormers now have a week’s rest and will then play the higher ranking winner of the Blues vs NSW or Crusaders vs Sharks clash.

The Stormers team: 15 Gio Aplon, 14 Jean de Villiers, 13 Jaque Fourie, 12 Juan de Jongh, 11 Bryan Habana, 10 Peter Grant, 9 Louis Schreuder, 8 Duane Vermeulen, 7 Francois Louw, 6 Schalk Burger (captain), 5 Andries Bekker, 4 Rynhardt Elstadt, 3 Brok Harris, 2 Tiaan Liebenberg, 1 Wicus Blaauw.
Replacements: 16 Deon Fourie, 17 Frans Malherbe, 18 Anton Van Zyl, 19 Nick Köster, 20 Nic Groom, 21 Johann Sadie, 22 Earl Rose.

    May I simply say what a relief to find someone that actually understands what
    they are discussing on the internet. You certainly understand how to bring an issue to light and make it
    important. More people have to look at this and understand this
    side of your story. I can’t believe you aren’t more popular since you most certainly have
    the gift.

    First off I want to say superb blog! I had a quick question that I’d
    like to ask if you do not mind. I was curious to know how you
    center yourself and clear your head prior to writing.

    I have had difficulty clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out there.
    I do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the first 10 to
    15 minutes are usually lost simply just trying to figure out how to begin.
    Any suggestions or hints? Thanks!

    I have mastered some new elements from your internet site about computers. Another thing I’ve always imagined is that laptop computers have become an item that each home must have for many people reasons. They provide convenient ways to organize homes, pay bills, search for information, study, tune in to music and also watch tv series. An innovative technique to complete all of these tasks is to use a mobile computer. These pc’s are mobile ones, small, powerful and easily transportable.
