DHL Stormers Announced For Clash Against Vodacom Blue Bulls This Saturday

DHL Stormers head coach, Robbie Fleck, announced the appointments of captain Siya Kolisi and vice-captain Eben Etzebeth, who will make their debut in their respective positions, this Saturday against the Vodacom Blue Bulls, at Newlands Rugby Stadium.

Fleck expressed his delight in the selection and described it as a ‘good combo’. Speaking at the official pre-match press conference, Fleckie emphasized that the pair are a strong combination and that the squad is the same strength as they were at Curry Cup level. ‘Whoever worked hard last season was rewarded, we look forward to following through what was started and although there are tough obstacles we are going into the season confidently. The wait is over, it’s time to get stuck in.’

He went on to describe Eben Etzebeth as a ‘quality rugby player who has finally found his feet within the squad’, he also applauded the 22-year-old’s understanding of how to play the Bulls.

When asked about his excitement about being selected as captain of the 2017 Stormers squad, 25-year-old captain Siya Kolisi said that while he is obviously excited (‘The Bulls is the team you want to start the season with!’), his main focus is to have a great game on Saturday.

About the Bulls he said that they’re facing a good squad who have made great purchases and that the boys look forward to playing them this weekend.

Fleckie also touched on the bench, adding that in modern day rugby, the bench selection is completely tactical. ‘A strong bench is key.’ With Robbie Fleck’s commitment to honing young talent within the squad and the leadership comprising of two world class players, we look forward to what the DHL Stormers will serve up this Super Rugby this season.

The coach also talked the crowd through how far the team has come and his vision for the 2017 squad.

The Q&A session that followed with flanker Siya Kolisi, wing Damian De Allende and lock Eben Etzbeth highlighted each player’s spirit, ability and support of each other as teammates, the latter sentiments emphasized by Kolisi when he expressed how important it is for him to provide support to his teammates on the field.

Treble invited local Afro-operatic pop sensations Gugulethu Tenors, who wowed audiences with their impressive vocals and energetic renditions of South African classics like ‘Pata Pata,’ ‘The Click Song,’ ‘Meadowlands’ and the ever patriotic ‘Nkosi Sikelele Afrika.’ We appointed the catering team at the Grand to present an excellent feast and first-rate service to our valued guests.

The vibe carried on until late into the night with the players, management and sponsors consorting on the sand under the stars celebrating their alignment and the 2017 season going forward.

Treble successfully manages DHL Club Newlands Sleepover

Newlands, Cape Town – Treble Group was extremely satisfied with the successful execution of the DHL Club Newlands Sleepover, which took place on Friday, February 3, 2017, at the iconic DHL Newlands Rugby Stadium.

The legendary Sleepover event, celebrating over a decade in existence, began with kids being treated to an exclusive training session with some of the DHL Stormers. As the field started to fill up, the energetic group was ushered onto the stands with the help of MC, Carl Wastie from KFM, for a group photo that embodied the camaraderie of the event.

26 members of the DHL Stormers team, including Scarra Ntubeni, Damien De Allende, Juan De Jongh and Eben Etzbeth, joined the children to assist in the short coaching clinic and a game of tag rugby, while parents were engulfed in an insightful War Room session with Coach Paul Feeley and two players. The parents had the opportunity to pose pertinent questions about the upcoming season, strategy and the future of the sport in SA, in the Q&A session.

The War Room was followed by a signing and photo session where the children had the opportunity to engage with their heroes one-on-one while getting their DHL rugby balls signed by the team.

The children received an informative chat around nutrition and fitness before an exciting Play-the-Bounce obstacle course by Brightrock, winning participants awesome spot prizes. The adults wore DHL plane and delivery van suits to participate in the DHL Delivery Run, much to the delight of their children cheering them on from the side lines. Once the grand prize was given to the parent-and-child pair who participated with the most spirit, tents were pitched on the hallowed grounds of DHL Newlands and the braai fires got going to end off the night before lights-out.

Treble would like to thank DHL, Brightrock, Tsogo Sun, Peninsula Beverages, CellC, The Entertainer, Deep Heat, Checkers, DSTV and SA Breweries, whose much-valued contributions added to the awesomeness of the event.

Treble geared up to manage DHL Club Newlands Sleepover

Club Newlands – the official supporters club of the DHL Stormers and DHL WP – will be ushering in the 2017 rugby season with a hive of pre-season activities to lift the spirits of the whole family!  We start the year off with a bang in the form of the annual Club Newlands DHL Stormers Sleepover on Friday 3rd February 2017 at DHL Newlands Rugby Stadium.

Parents along with their kids are given the opportunity to pitch a tent on the sacred grounds of DHL Newlands Rugby Stadium a once in a lifetime experience which rugby fans young and old will remember for years to come.

Some of the DHL Stormers team will join the children and assist in a short coaching clinic, followed by a signing and photo session with the boys. Parent and child couples will also be privy to a talk around nutrition and fitness, a few exciting spot prizes on the day and a grand prize for the pair that shows the most physicality and enthusiasm during activities. The adults also have an opportunity to don DHL plane and delivery van suits and participate in the DHL run, much to the delight of their sprogs cheering them on from the side lines. This is then crowned with a braai and a hub of activities throughout the evening for the kids to enjoy before lights out.

‘The DHL Club Newlands Sleepover not only promotes camaraderie between parent and child, but also encourages children to develop and pursue fitness within the realm of local rugby in a fun, interactive space.’ – Selwyn Lewis, Director, Club Newlands.

Club Newlands aims to encourage bonding between parents and their children while participating in exercises which promote a healthy lifestyle with the aid of the Western Province Rugby Football Union (WPRFU) coaching and development department. We also believe that by investing in family oriented events, such as the Sleepover, Club Newlands actively conveys the message that rugby is a way of life for the whole family.

Treble Group activates Captain’s Run and War Room Experience for Momentum

Treble Group, on behalf of Club Newlands, invited Club Newlands’ valued sponsor, Momentum and their VIP guests, to the inner sanctum of the DHL Stormers before their big quarterfinal clash against the Chiefs at DHL Newlands.

The sponsor and their guests attended the DHL Stormers Captain’s Run; the final team training session, normally held a day before kick-off, not open to the media or to the public. They enjoyed a quick meet and greet with their favourite DHL Stormers players in the tunnel, before proceeding to the Club Newlands Lounge for a tasty lunch and War Room experience.

The DHL Stormers War Room is a unique occasion where the DHL Stormers head coach, Robbie Fleck, took time from his game day preparation to give his insight and his plans for the quarterfinal clash.

Coach Robbie Fleck planned a “fearless approach” to the team’s playing style and focussed on playing smart rugby. Unfortunately the DHL Stormers lost their quarterfinal match but the team is determined to take valuable lessons from their defeat and come back stronger next season.

“Sponsors are the lifeblood of the game,” said Club Newlands Director, Selwyn Lewis. “The Club Newlands team would like to thank Momentum for their continued support of the club and our teams. We sincerely hope that our valued sponsor enjoyed this incredible and unique experience.”
