Messam relishing key battles against Stormers

Chiefs captain Liam Messam says that he is looking forward to seeing the mid-field battle between Sonny Bill Williams of the Chiefs and Damian de Allende of the Stormers.

Rugby World Cup winner Sonny Bill Williams has impressed since he returned to rugby union and will go up against De Allende who has made a name for himself of the last couple of years.

“The Stormers have more than just a good pack. Their inside centre (De Allende) is strong on his feet, big and gets them over the advantage line in an efficient manner,” Messam toldNetwerk24.

“(But) we also have a big inside centre in Sonny Bill, so hopefully they’ll meet each other on the gain line.”

Messam said that he was also relishing the opportunity to go up against Springbok No 8 Duane Vermeulen

“I always look forward to playing against big Duane,” said Messam.

“He is one of the best No 8s in the world. It’s also nice to see Schalk Burger run around again after his injury struggles.”
