|Home team||Away Team|
|30 - 21||
REBELS 30 - 21 STORMERS
80 The Rebels win possession at a ruck and when the hooter goes they boot the ball into touch! It's a memorable win for the home side but this result could have gone either way! The Stormers can consider themselves unlucky that they didn't get, at least, a bonus-point from this match.
78 PENALTY, REBELS, WOODWARD! 30-21. Woodward succeeds with another penalty to put more daylight between his side and the visitors!
75 YELLOW CARD, STORMERS, BEZUIDENHOUT! Martin Bezuidenhout will spend the rest of the match in the sin bin after his foul on Phipps, which also led to the penalty try!
75 CONVERSION, REBELS, WOODWARD! 27-21. Woodward adds the extras to extend the hosts' lead!
74 TRY, REBELS, PENALTY, TRY! 25-21. Scott Higginbotham boots the ball ahead and Nick Phipps and Bryan Habana gives chase! Phipps is held back by Martin Bezuidenhout and is involved a mad scramble with Habana behind the try-line. The referee checks with his TMO who rules that Phipps would've scored a try if he wasn't held back by Bezuidenhout!
71 Woodward takes a shot at goal, from close to the halfway line, after Frans Malherbe plays the ball from an offside position. Woodward's effort has the direction but not the distance.
68 The Stormers attack close to the Rebels' try-line but make little headway! Juan de Jongh runs onto a short pass from Gary van Aswegen but is put on his backside by a huge tackle from Rory Sidey!
65 The Rebels are pinned for being offside and Pietersen puts the penalty into touch inside the Rebels' 22. The visitors will look to get their driving maul going from the line-out.
62 There's a break in play as Nic Henderson is receiving medical attention. He is eventually forced to leave the field, looking quite groggy.
59 CONVERSION, STORMERS, PIETERSEN! 20-21. Pietersen holds his nerve and lands the difficult spot-kick from up against the touchline!
58 TRY, STORMERS, BEKKER! 20-19. The Stormers trike back after Habana tears the Rebels defence to shreds with the initial break. He is stopped short of the line but he ball comes out wide to Eben Etzebeth, who offloads to his second row partner who scores in the left-hand corner!
55 CONVERSION, REBELS, WOODWARD! 20-14. Woodward adds the extras to extend the home side's lead!
54 TRY, REBELS, PYLE! 18-14. The Rebels are on the charge after Higginbotham breaks through the middle of a ruck. After setting up a few more phases, Hugh Pyle runs onto a pass from Phipps and barges over the whitewash!
50 Laurie Weekes is penalised for illegal scrummaging. Jantjies kicks for touch and puts the ball out close to the Rebels' corner flag. Their plan backfires when Siya Kolisi is pinned for obstruction at a driving maul off the ensuing line-out.
47 Andries Bekker sets off on a run down the right-hand touchline! He throws an inside pass to De Jongh, but it's on the centre's bootlaces and he fails to hold on with the try-line at his mercy!
45 Rory Sidey takes on the Stormers defence but is brought to ground by a solid hit from Jantjies. The Rebels try to attack from the ensuing ruck but Woodward knocks on a pass from Nick Phipps.
43 Jarryd Saffy is penalised for being offside. The Stormers opt to kick for touch and Pietersen puts the ball out inside the Rebels' 22.
41 Pietersen gets the second half underway! His kick is gathered by Cadeyrn Neville who sets up a ruck just outside his 22.
REBELS 13 - 14 STORMERS
40 From a ruck, close to the halfway line, the ball comes out on the Stormers' side and Schreduder boots it into touch when the hooter sounds. That's the end of the half and the players head into the sheds. As the scoreline suggests, it's been a closely fought affair but still quite entertaining. Should be an interesting second half.
38 PENALTY, REBELS, WOODWARD! 13-14. Woodward succeeds with another three-pointer after Fourie is pinned for a ruck infringement.
35 The Rebels pack annihilate their counterparts at a scrum! The ball spills out at the back on the hosts' side but Higginbotham knocks on and the Stormers get out of jail!
34 Tom English makes a break and beats two defenders! He gains about thirty metres and is eventually brought to ground after a combined challenge from Carr and Deon Fourie.
31 The Rebels attack off a scrum and Cadeyrn Neville gets over the try-line! He is denied the try after the referee rules that he was tackled in the build-up and did not release the ball.
28 CONVERSION, STORMERS, PIETERSEN! 10-14. Pietersen makes no mistake fro mthe kicking tee to extend the visitors' lead!
27 TRY, STORMERS, HABANA! 10-12. Eben Etzebeth runs into a gap and offloads to Bryan Habana who gets in for his side's second try!
25 The home side try to launch an attack around the fringe of a ruck but Nic Stirzaker throws a forward pass to Mitch Inman.
22 The Rebels take the ball through 12 phases but once again the Stormers' defence hold them at bay. They eventually turn over possession when Higginbotham knocks on.
19 The Stormers are under the cosh when De Villiers knocks on a ball inside his 22! The Rebels win a turnover and are hammering away at the visitors' try-line!
17 CONVERSION, STORMERS, PIETERSEN! 10-7. Joe Pietersen steps up and adds the easy two-pointer!
16 TRY, STORMERS, SCHREUDER! 10-5. Louis Schreuder runs onto a pass from Nizaam Carr, at a scrum, and breaks through three tackles before scoring under the posts!
15 The Stormers are doing their best to get back into this game! They take the ball through nine phases until Steven Kitshoff knocks on inside the Rebels' 22!
13 CONVERSION, REBELS, WOODWARD! 10-0. Woodward adds the extras to extend the home side's lead!
12 TRY, REBELS, HIGGINBOTHAM! 8-0. Scott Higginbotham runs onto a pass close to the Stormers' try-line and barges through a tackle from Joe Pietersen before dotting down!
11 Bryan Habana tries to field a clearance kick but knocks on just outside his 22!
8 Scott Higginbotham takes the ball into contact and is brought to ground by a text-book tackle from Gio Aplon.
6 PENALTY, REBELS, WOODWARD! 3-0. Jason Woodward opens the scoring after Bekker is pinned or being offside.
4 The Rebels show great continuity and take the ball through seven phases. The Stormers do well to hold their shape on defence and meet the hosts' assault head on!
2 The Stormers try to attack out wide but lose momentum when Juan de Jongh knocks on a short pass from Jean de Villiers.
Kick-off And we're off! Jason Woodward gets us underway with a deep, hanging kick which Andries Bekker gathers. He sets up a ruck and when the ball comes out to Elton Jantjies he boots it into touch 15 metres outside his 22.
Team news Rebels rookie Bryce Hegarty will make his starting debut at fly-half after regular number 10s James O'Connor and Angus Roberts both sustained injuries in last weekend's defeat against the Blues in Auckland. Rebels coach Damien Hill has also selected Nic Stirzaker in the starting team, who will also make his run on debut.
Team news Stormers boss Allister Coetzee has made seven changes to his starting line-up that lost to the Waratahs in Sydney last weekend. In one of those changes, regular hooker Deon Fourie will move from the front-row to the flank, with Siya Kolisi shifting to the other side of the scrum and the exciting Nizaam Carr in at eight. With Fourie on the flank, Currie Cup-winning hooker Scarra Ntubeni will make his first-ever Super Rugby start in the number two shirt. In a final change in the front-row, Pat Cilliers will start at tighthead prop in part of the rotation policy with Frans Malherbe, who reverts to jersey seventeen. There is also a change at half-back for the Stormers, with Elton Jantjies and Louis Schreuder starting a game together for the first time at fly-half and scrum-half, respectively. Fly-half Gary van Aswegen, who has started the past four games, drops to the bench where he is joined by Nic Groom who will be looking to make his first appearance of the tour. Groom, in turn, will be joined on the bench by lock Gerbrandt Grobler, who flew to Australia this week as injury cover, and hooker Martin Bezuidenhout. Flank/lock Don Armand and wing Gerhard van den Heever - who sat on the bench last week - make up the rest of the 22.
Welcome Good day and welcome to AAMI Park in Melbourne for this Super Rugby clash between our hosts, the Rebels, and the Stormers. It's an important game for the visitors who are playing the last match on their tour of Australasia. The Rebels have impressed in recent weeks but have lost narrowly on a couple of occasions. Could their luck change this week. We'll have to wait and see. Don't go away! We'll be back soon with team news.
