False Bay RFC welcome Stormers in pre-season friendly

With the Super Rugby season barely three weeks away, the Stormers hold a dress rehearsal in a practice match against False Bay at Constantia on Saturday morning.

The Bay will face the franchise in two 20-minute chukkas before the WP Supersport Challenge Squad continue the test for another 40 minutes.

It is a unique event, the coming together of amateur and professional rugby while at the same time giving the public an opportunity to see their heroes in a community environment.

As if the excitement of the match is not enough, spectators will be able to witness thirteen Stormers Springboks in a short conditioning session after the main event, which offers fans some insight to the rigors of such sessions.

The entire concept is a coup for the WPRFU as they take the Stormers to the community as such.

False Bay coach, Johnno van der Walt said it an exciting opportunity and honour for False Bay to go against the Stormers.
