Stormers v Sharks - Live

Last updated: 13th April 2013  

Full Time: Stormers 22 - 15 Sharks

Penalty80 LAMBIE PENALTY! 22-15! The Stormers offend at the breakdown so Lambie kicks the vital three points to give the Sharks a losing bonus-point at Newlands. That is that then here with the Stormers victorious.

79 Young wing Robinson kicks ahead down the left wing but he did not expect hooker Martin Bezuidenhout being back before him to dive on the ball in the Stormers 22. The Capetonians survive and clear.

78 The Sharks know they have to keep the ball in hand for the closing stages and set about making the required 50 metres to the line. It doesn't pan out as hoped though as Jordaan's flick goes forward.

76 Off goes fly-half Van Aswegan for Coleman in what has been a solid performance from the youngster.

Penalty75 PIETERSEN PENALTY! 22-12! Scrum penalty once again for the hosts so that's the ten-point lead again.

72 The Stormers should have scored then. A driving maul for the line saw them split for some reason - far too soon - and Kolisi was ultimately pounced upon and held up over the line. Attacking scrum coming.

70 Things get a whole lot better for the hosts too when replacement Riaan Viljeon slices a clearing kick into touch, ten metres from his own line. A massive chance here to put the seal on this derby victory.

69 Things are certainly livening up here as a bit of kicking precedes the Stormers attacking down the left touchline. Duvenage slows it down at the base as the Stormers remain calm about 40 metres out.

67 And the scrum-half's nice effort at the tail leads to the Stormers enjoying sustained pressure in the Sharks 22. It comes back to Pietersen who lines up a drop-goal. Off it goes...wide from the full-back.

66 Scratch that, good harassing work from Duvenage on Daniel forces the scrum turnover. That may be key.

65 Action aplenty here as Steyn slips a couple on his own 22 before having his kick blocked by Kitshoff. That passage ends with a Stormers hand knocking the ball forward so it's a Sharks scrum 60 metres out

Penalty62 LAMBIE PENALTY! 19-12! The lead is back down to just one score then.

61 The form of Reinach has been superb tonight as he now carries five Stormers defenders one by one into their own 22. That results in a scrum, which then is converted into a penalty for a collapsed maul.

58 The Sharks almost strike back in quick time though as Jordaan steps around De Allende only to be bundled into touch soon after about fifteen metres from the line. The Stormers clear via Pietersen.

Penalty56 PIETERSEN PENALTY! 19-9! The lead is back up to ten points after a breakdown penalty is awarded.

55 What a chance that was for the Sharks as the ball scooted out the back of a Stormers ruck in the 22 but Reinach could not scoop the ball up for his side. The Stormers subsequently clear their lines.

52 Yes, Pietersen hobbles off and is replaced by Ndungane.

51 Concern for the Sharks here as Pietersen seems to be struggling after being brought down by Cilliers. Odwa Ndungane is being warmed up as I type while the Stormers prepare to put in on the visitors 22.

Penalty49 LAMBIE PENALTY! 16-9! No mistake from Lambie with his simple attempt at goal. The lead is now seven.

48 The Sharks use their big runners such as Pietersen, Coetzee and Kankowski which takes them up to the Stormers 22. Now the Beast adds his weight and there's a penalty here for Rhodes going off his feet.

46 Sharks ball with Bosman and Jordaan combining, taking them up to halfway. However, a fumble from Duvenage as he attempted to steal possession results in a visiting scrummage. Chance to run here.

43 Van Aswegan clears his lines after a fumble from Duvenage was adjudged to have gone backwards. They have the ball back soon after though as Bekker takes contact close to halfway. Cue the kick tennis.

41 Welcome back to the action from Newlands in Cape Town where the Stormers are ten points to the good.

40 Half-time: Stormers 16 Sharks 6

Penalty39 LAMBIE PENALTY! 16-6! The Sharks have some points before the break as the Stormers are offside.

Conversion36 PIETERSEN CONVERSION! 16-3! No mistake.

TRY35 DE JONGH TRY! 14-3! A beautiful score from the Stormers. De Villiers and his centre partner combine, with the latter being put through by his captain. The conversion will be a simple one for Pietersen.

34 Good work from the Stormers at the breakdown as they pounce on Bosman who holds on. That allows full-back Pietersen to put the ball into the away 22 but unfortunately a fumble gifts the Sharks a scrum.

30 Lambie has another shot at goal soon after from distance but this one drops short of the uprights.

Penalty28 LAMBIE PENALTY! 9-3! The Springbok makes no mistake from wide out.

26 So the Stormers now have a bit more defending to get through as Lambie puts the ball into touch on the home 22, with Burden about to throw. The blood replacement sends it in before Coetzee crashes it up.

24 Van Aswegan is back on the field so his brief exit was obviously for blood. And the Stormers look to celebrate his return with more points, setting up camp on the away 22. It's stolen though by Du Toit!

21 The Sharks could strike back here as they have a scrum 20 metres from the home line, with a lot of room to spread possession to the left. Well, that won't happen as the Beast is penalised by Joubert.

Penalty18 PIETERSEN PENALTY! 9-0! He makes no mistake from almost bang in front, 20 out. Three out of three.

17 Fourie now takes it up to the Sharks 22 and is taken high by tackler Daniel. Chance to make it 9-0...

16 The Sharks are fighting back and how, with a handful of phases racked up just outside the Stormers 22. Unfortunately for replacement Bresler though he fumbles in contact so the Stormers move up to halfway.

Penalty13 PIETERSEN PENALTY! 6-0! The lead is doubled as the Sharks offend.

12 A blow for young fly-half Van Aswegan as he is forced off injured, replaced by Kurt Coleman.

11 Another huge statement from the Stormers props as the youngsters get the better of Du Plessis and Mtawarira. The Stormers look for the corner then as that shot is a touch too far out for Pietersen.

9 Solid drift defence from the Sharks as De Jongh and Pietersen are ushered toward the touchline, with the latter the man ultimately bundled out. Cobus Reinach puts in but it's a home penalty at the scrum.

7 Possession is with the Sharks it's JP Pietersen taking the ball up on halfway. Now Lambie puts in a kick into the 22 that rolls into touch so that will encourage the Sharks as Fourie prepares to throw.

Penalty5 PIETERSEN PENALTY! 3-0! The Stormers work the phases and Paul Jordaan eventually fails to release the tackler so it will be a first shot at goal for Pietersen wide on the left side. He makes no mistake.

3 But now Lambie makes a mistake by looking for touch and putting the ball straight out while Deon Fourie and Kyle Cooper almost come to blows elsewhere. Stormers ball, 20 out from the Sharks line.

1 First penalty goes the way of the Sharks as they boss the breakdown in their own 22. Lambie clears.

The teams are out and we're off and running at Newlands with Craig Joubert in the middle here today.

Team News: The Stormers are without Elton Jantjies so Gary van Aswegen starts at fly-half with Damian de Allende on the right wing. Meanwhile, the Sharks include Sean Robinson in their number fourteen jersey while Keegan Daniel, Ryan Kankowski and Marcell Coetzee form an impressive looking back-row combination.

Welcome: Hello and welcome from Newlands in Cape Town for this South African derby between the Stormers and Sharks. Their last clash in Durban was far from entertaining but one hopes for an improvement this time around. The Stormers desperately need a win here to restart their season at this early stage.

Give George Ford the chance to shine for England, says Dewi Morris

I watched Bath v Saracens last Friday and was very impressed with George Ford and how well he controlled that game for Bath. I would love to see him play a big role in the autumn internationals and I hope Stuart Lancaster starts him for at least two of the four Tests.
