Stormers v Cheetahs - Live

Last updated: 29th June 2013  

Full Time Stormers 28 Cheetahs 3

80 The Stormers try to attack off the back of a line-out but Habana knocks on a pass from Kolisi. That's the final act of this clash and the hosts clinch the win but fail in their bid to get that bonus point for scoring four tries. It was an entertaining clash which the hosts deserved to win. The loss is a bit of a setback to the Cheetahs' play-off ambitions and they will have to improve considerably, in their remaining matches, if they want to secure that goal.

80 The Stormers are awarded a penalty when Le roux is pinned for being offside at a ruck. Pietersen puts the ball out inside the Cheetahs' 22.

78 Elgar Watts goes on the attack but knocks on after taking a big hit from Elgar Watts!

74 Philip Snyman throws a long pass which Rhule knocks on. Scrum to the Stormers. They're looking for that try-scoring bonus point now.

TRY71 TRY, STORMERS, HABANA! 28-3. The Stormers take the ball through several phases from deep inside their half. Juan De Jongh, Carr and Damian de Allende are all prominent ball carriers until the ball is offloaded to Habana, who scores in the corner!

70 Etzebeth is pinned for not releasing a tackled player. The Cheetahs take a tap penalty but concede possession when Rhule knocks on.

Conversion67 CONVERSION, STORMERS, PIETERSEN! 23-3. Pietersen extends his side's lead when he lands the easy two-pointer!

TRY66 TRY, STORMERS, KOLISI! 21-3. Kolisi runs onto an inside pass from Schreuder and spins out of two tackles before crashing over!

64 The Cheetahs are under the cosh and Rhule tries to gather a clearance kick deep inside his 22. He can do little more than to carry the ball over his try-line under great pressure from Schreuder and Fourie.

62 Pietersen puts the Stormers on the attack, with a clearance kick which goes into touch on the Cheetahs' 22-metre line. This after the Stormers are awarded a penalty when Smith is pinned for being offside, after a Le Roux clearance kick.

57 Strauss takes the ball into contact, inside the Stormers' 22 but loses possession when Siya Kolisi wins a crucial turnover!

Penalty55 PENALTY, STORMERS, PIETERSEN! 16-3. Pietersen adds another three-pointer after Johann Sadie is pinned for straying offside at a ruck.

52 Fourie breaks through the middle of a ruck, just outside the Cheetahs' 22 and launches a chip kick, which Robert Ebersohn gathers while calling for a mark.

Penalty50 PENALTY, STORMERS, PIETERSEN! 13-3. Pietersen gets the first points of the half, after Strauss is penalised for an early tackle on NIzaam Carr.

47 Le Roux launches a chip kick and Rhule gives chase. It's a poor kick from the full-back as the ball goes directly into touch.

45 Smit gathers a poor pass from Van Zyl, but, despite great pressure from several defenders, he puts his side on the attack with a clearance kick which rolls into touch deep inside the home side's 22.

42 Ntubeni throws a short ball, at a line-out to Etzebeth, who returns the pass to the hooker. Ntubeni is in the clear and sets off down the touchline but is brought to ground by a text-book tackle from Raymond Rhule.

40 Pietersen gets the second half underway with a deep kick, which Brussows gathers inside his 22. He clatters into Steven Kitshoff on the edge of the 22.

Half Time Stormers 10 Cheetahs 3

40 From a scrum, close to the halfway line, the ball comes out to Schreuder who knocks the ball into touch. That's the final act of the half as both sides It's been a an evenly contested affair and both sides have thrown everything at each other. There's still plenty to play for after the break, so don't go away! We'll be back with the second half in 10 minutes!

Conversion38 CONVERSION, STORMERS, PIETERSEN! 10-3. Pietersen adds the extras to extend the hosts' lead!

TRY37 TRY, STORMERS, FOURIE! 8-3. The Stormers launch a drive, from a line-out on the Cheetahs' five-metre line and when they get close to the try-line, Deon Fourie barges over from close quarters!

Kick-off And we're off! Rian Smit gets us underway with a deep kick which De Kock Steenkamp takes despite great pressure from two defenders. The Stormers set up a maul outside their 22 and go on a drive for about 10 metres.

Team news There's been some late changes to both sides due to injuries. For the Stormers, Tian Liebenberg has withdrawn which means Scarra Ntubeni is elevated to the run-on side while Martin Bezuidenhout comes in on the bench. Cheetahs full-back Hennie Daniller has also withdrawn. This means that Willie le Roux shifts from the wing to full-back and Sarel Pretorius, who was originally the visitors' replacement scrum-half, will now wear the number 14 jersey. Pretorius' place on the bench will be taken by Tewis de Bruyn.

Team news Springbok skipper Jean de Villiers has been ruled out of this clash, with a sternum injury which means Deon Fourie takes over the captaincy of the Stormers. Fellow Springbok Juan de Jongh replaces De Villiers at outside centre, with Fourie once again turning out on the flank for the home side. On the bench, hooker Scarra Ntubeni and prop Ross Geldenhuys come in for Martin Bezuidenhout and Chris Heiberg.

Team news The Cheetahs have named a strong-looking line-up for this South African derby. Included in the 22 are recent Springbok team members Willie le Roux, Coenie Oosthuizen, Trevor Nyakane and captain Adriaan Strauss. Le Roux shifts from his international position of full-back to right wing due to Hennie Daniller's presence while Raymond Rhule lines up at 11. Head coach Naka Drotske has opted for the in-form Piet van Zyl at scrum-half instead of Sarel Pretorius, where he is joined by Riaan Smit.

Welcome Hello and welcome to the Newlands Stadium in Cape Town for this Super Rugby clash between our hosts, the Stormers, and the Cheetahs. We'll return shortly with team news.
