Reds v Stormers - Live
The Stomers roll on The win sees the Stormers head back to the top of the Super Rugby table while for the Reds it's more frustration. There is still plenty of action to come this weekend, starting with what should be an absolute cracker in the Hurricanes vs Crusaders tomorrow at 7:35 GMT. Do join us then. Cheers
80 The hooter goes almost straight from the restart and the replacement scrum-half Schreuder boots it into the stands. Victory for the Stormers!
80 PENALTY, STORMERS, GRANT. Grant makes no mistake from about 10 metres to the right of the posts and that will most likely deny the Reds a bonus point.
79 A silly chip over the top hands possession back to the Stormers and then a high tackle from Simmons on Pietersen means Grant has a chance to stretch the lead back to 10 points.
78 PENALTY, REDS, HARRIS 13-20. Harris makes no mistake with the Reds and they're withing seven points now.
77 Great work from the Reds scrum though sees it go through the 90 and the hosts now have a scrum of their own about 10 metres out. Brok Harris is penalised for incorrect timing at the engage and the Reds decide to go for the three points on this occasion, it's a much easier kick.
75 The throw from Hanson isn't straight though so they've wasted the opportunity for the moment.
74 There are certainly some tired bodies out there but nobody is giving an inch. It's another penalty to the Reds and they have a big decision as to whether they should go for posts or go for the try. They decide to look for the five-pointer.
72 The Stormers give away yet another penalty at ruck time and Steve Walsh has a word with Vermeulen, the Stormers skipper. Reds line-out on the Stormers 10m line.
71 Horror show from Genia as he knocks on at the line-out and hands possession back to the Stormers. Good work from the Reds loosies means the Reds get it back though and a chip over the initially puts pressure on the Stormers but they spread the ball well in broken play before Aplon chips ahead. The Reds bring it back and Mohran does well before he's crunched into touch inside the Stormers 22m. The Stormers take the line-out quickly and clear. Phew, it's end to end stuff.
69 A chip over the top from Duvenage bounces kindly for Fourie and the Stormers are away. They show good patience as they work their way up in Reds territory. Robinson puts good pressure on at the ruck and the Stormers are forced to illegally take him out and referee Walsh awards the Reds a penalty.
66 The Reds do really well to work the ball up, with Morahan prominent but they get five metres out and concede a penalty for holding on. Frustration for the hosts.
65 The Reds look to move the ball with great vigour, Liam Gill at the ruck accidentally kicks the ball ahead but he's quick to realise the error and pounces on the Stormers man who picks it up and wins a penalty as the Stormers hold on.
64 A charge down from Kolisi gives the Stormers possession but they're penalised for holding on and Harris sets up a line-out 40ms out.
62 CONVERSION, REDS, HARRIS 10-20. No mistake with the conversion and the Reds trail by just ten.
61 TRY, REDS, HORWILL 8-20. Disaster at the line-out from the Stormers and they pay the price! Simmons puts good pressure on and the throw is missed by everyone (it's a tad high with all the competing) and Horwill standing at the back is there to pick it up and as a clear run to the line.
60 The 22 drop out is hoofed down field and some great interplay between Morahan and Davies propels the Reds up field. Higginbotham gets his hands on it too before a sniping break from Genia ends with a Stormers line-out 5m from their own line.
59 The Reds gets some momentum on attack and they're ten out when Lucas puts in a grubber behind the line, it's a good kick but it just alludes the Reds' attackers.
56 The Reds get penalty which they use to set up a line-out on the Stormers 5m line. They can't control the ball though and the Stormers forwards surge over and steal possession. The visitors attack through Habana and they make it all the way up to the 10m line before a knock on from Pietersen brings a halt to the attack.
53 PENALTY, STORMERS, GRANT 20-3. The penalty is right in front and Grant makes no mistake.
53 There is a knock-on from the Stormers. They put incredible pressure on at scrum time but the Reds retain possession before hacking the ball away down field. The visitors attack in waves and Scott Higginbotham is pinged for offside as the ball slams into him as he looks to get back onto the right side of the ruck.
50 The throw from the line-out isn't straight and the Stormers get a scrum as a result. Not for the first time the scrum is reset but the Stormers eventually get it away with Duvenage taking it onto the short side. The ball is spread to the left-hand touchline and scrummie clears and some aerial ping-pong ensues. The Stormers get the better of it though, setting up a line-out on the Reds 10m line.
47 Some front row replacements for the Stormers as Fourie and Malherbe come on. A very sloppy pass from the base of the scrum from Duvenage - who was under a lot of pressure - almost makes a mess of things for the Stormers, but Pietersen clears.
46 The Stormers are penalised as Samo breaks from the scrum. Simmons takes it quickly and is just short. The Reds bash it up a bit more and once again Simmons gets his hands on it, he's closer to the line this time but just loses it over the whitewash. Disappointment for the hosts, a much better effort though.
45 So close for the Reds! James Hanson breaks through the middle and the ball is flung really wide to Rod Davies on the touchline who makes good ground into the Stormers 22m. A Stormers hand gets in the way and the Reds have a scrum 5m out.
43 The Reds swing the ball wide from the scrum but nobody straightened the attack and the ball ends up out of play after a shoddy pass.
42 The Stormers collect the kick-off and return it back up field. Mike Harris is the man who is back there but he puts his kick out on the full and the Stormers have a line-out on the Reds 10m line. The throw from Liebenberg is skew though so the Reds get the ball back.
Let the second 40 begin! The players are making their way onto the park and we're ready to go!
Half Time REDS 3 - 17 STORMERS
40 That's it for the half! The Stormers are looking awesome! Can the Reds bounce back in the second period? It doesn't look good for the hosts. We'll be back in ten.
39 CONVERSION, GRANT. 3-17. The Reds are behind the eight ball now!
37 TRY, STORMERS, GRANT. 3-15. Oh what a try! The Stormers work it up the length of the field before Grant beats a gaggle of defenders to sneak over!
35 Lucas MISSES the penalty. De Jongh is full of confidence - he runs it back to halfway!
34 The line-out goes over the top but Liebenberg shoves Higginbotham before he can catch it. Penalty!
32 Steenkamp gathers at a line-out under pressure from Horwill. The Stormers set piece has been very good. The Stormers attack in centre field but give away another penalty for going off their feet.
30 PENALTY, REDS, LUCAS. 3-10. The Reds are on the board at last! The Stormers pinged for hanging on.
27 Great work Aplon! The speedster gets back to clear up after Horwill charges Pietersen down. Aplon and Pietersen run it back from behind their goal line before Pietersen clears. That's confidence for you!
25 The Reds clear after a scrum in their 22, starting a long spell of kick tennis.
23 The Stormers make a mess of a line-out on the Reds 22. Beau Robinson tries to clear but his kick hits Elstadt square in the face! He goes down like a sack of potatoes...that's gotta hurt!
20 Oh! The reds swing it wide and look dangerous but Shipperley spills Tapuai's pass. Another opportunity lost.
18 Harris chips over the top for Davies to chase but he's kicked it too far and it bounces out. Opportunity lost for the Reds.
16 The Stormers defence has been awesome, once again. The Reds are losing ground more often than not on defence.
14 Mike Harris has a shot at goal from out wide wide but he's off target.
12 The Stormers look to spread it wide in centre field but Rynhardt Elstadt drops an easy pass and the Reds have a scrum on the half-way line.
10 CONVERSION, GRANT. 0-10. Perfect start for the visitors.
9 TRY, STORMERS, APLON! 0-8. The visitors strike first as Aplon is at the end of an overlap for an easy run-in!
8 Oh! Danger for the Reds. de Jongh smashes Tapuai to force the turnover in midfield. Aplon burst clear down the touchline but his chips ahead is cleaned up.
6 Ben Lucas is on. The Reds are on full attack in the Stormers 22 and looking dangerous. Ben Tapuai hits the line hard. Turnover! Aplon steals it and Pietersen clears.
4 Disaster for the Reds! Sam Lane is down and he's staying down. He's done his knee for sure. Game over! The Reds fly-half curse strikes again as Lane is helped off the field!
2 PENALTY, STORMERS, GRANT! 0-3. The Reds haven't touched the all yet and are three points down! Great work from Habana to get possession and then the loose forwards forced the penalty at the breakdown.
Kick-off Here we go! Joe Pietersen kicks us off. Habana chases well and wins it for the Stormers, who launch the first attack.
Team news Springbok wing Bryan Habana shifts to centre for the injured Jean de Villiers in the Stormers side. Gio Aplon returns from injury to take his place on the wing. There is only one change to the pack with De Kock Steenkamp in for the injured Andries Bekker,
Team news The Reds have retained Sam Lane at fly-half and accommodated the returning Mike Harris at inside centre. Wallabies loose forward Radike Samo has also been thrusted into the starting line-up at number eight.
Welcome Hello and welcome to Brisbane where the defending champions host the title contenders from Cape Town, who are looking to bounce back from defeat in Christchurch. It's set to be cracker. Kick-off is approaching, don't go away!
