DHL Stormers Head Coach John Dobson said that the Toyota Cheetahs had tested his team physically, with their conversion rate on the attack the only real concern, having created numerous opportunities.

“That was probably the most physical game we have played this year, which is a credit to the Cheetahs. It was a tough game of rugby.

“One fault correction from us would be the poor conversion rate once we got into the 22,” he said.

Dobson was pleased with the way his team dominated territorially and the significant flair and composure they showed to score their three tries against a resolute Toyota Cheetahs defence.

“We want to control games with territory, where I think Damian has made massive progress, and we want to score tries that suit Western Province and DHL Stormers rugby which make people smile, so we were pretty pleased with that.

Dobson added that he is hopeful of having some players return from injury in the near future to further strengthen the squad going forward.

“In terms of injury returns, we are actually going in the right direction.

“We have got some players coming back Siya [Kolisi] will be back this week or the week after, along with Seabelo [Senatla] and Jaco [Coetzee],” he said.
