Stormers coach John Dobson wants to continue his side’s charge up the URC table.

“We feel that with a bit more time together, this combination can perform even better,” Dobson said.

“We have challenged the players to end the year on a high and reward the fans who come out to watch us on New Year’s Eve.

“These derby games are so important for our standing in the South African conference, so we want to make another step-up this weekend.”
