Chiefs and All Blacks flank Sam Cane has said that Siya Kolisi “plays a lot like a Kiwi”, ahead of their Super Rugby quarter-final clash.
Stormers dominated in their match against the Chiefs at Newlands earlier in the year after reaching a score of 34-26 in their favour. At the time, Chiefs’ coach, Dave Rennie acknowledged that the Stormers were in fact more physical of the two teams says SA Rugby Mag.
It was however Cane, who admitted to being impressed with flank Kolisi this season, mentioning to TimesLIVE that: "He's got good footwork‚ a great skill-set‚ and is very physical too.
"I’m not sure if he has bulked up in the past few years. I first swapped a Test jersey with him four years ago. We always make an effort to chat after the game. We’ve got a good relationship."
The Chiefs have come through the conference stage having sustained only two losses in 15 matches adds SA Rugby Mag, whereas the Stormers will head into the match with a poor playoff record, despite winning their last three matches.
Last year, they suffered a great 60-21 defeat in the quarter-finals against the Chiefs at Newlands. Nevertheless the way they have been performing recently may count in their favour as this match is anticipated to be physical and gripping.
Saturday's game will kick-off at 17:00.
