On Paper the Stormers should walk this. Even though the Highlanders got a thumping from the Bulls last weekend they are not a bad team. They have a good pack of forwards but in the loosies the Stormers have the edge as their loose trio (Luke Watson, Schalk Burger and Francois Louw) have shown some fine form.
