The Stormers have lost Nick Koster for the rest of their tour of Australia after he aggravated his knee injury during training this week and he is on his way back to South Africa.
Stormers have confirmed that Koster will return to Cape Town where he will be assessed by a specialist.
The reality of the Stormers physical game and immense defence is rapidly catching up with the Stomers as injuries pour in but coach Allister Coetzee remains positibe.
"Despite the injuries, the touring group is in high spirits and is very motivated," said Coetzee.
"Our motto for the week is; nothing special has ever been achieved in ideal conditions. "
"A win this week will be the difference between a good tour and a great one and this group knows that. "
"Our sessions this week have been excellent and we will be going all out for a win in this game."
