80 Dylon Frylinck boots the ball into touch when he hears the sound of the hooter, shortly after a line-out. That's the final act of the half and the Stormers are victorious. As the scoreline suggests, this was a one-sided affair and the visitors will have to do some soul searching after that performance.

Sailosi Tagicakibau is first to react and dives onto the bouncing ball to secure the home side's bonus point for scoring four tries!

Yellow Card74 YELLOW CARD, STORMERS, RHODES! The Stormers are dominant now and are once again on the attack close to the Cheetahs' try-line. There's some argy bargy amongst the forwards and, after checking with his TMO, referee Stuart Berry sends Michael Rhodes to the sin bin for pulling the hair of Lobberts.

Half Time40 Stormers 15 Cheetahs 0

40 Coleman's effort is to the left of the uprights and that's the the final act of the half. The players head into the sheds and the Stormers deserve their lead. They've done most of the attacking and will look to build on that performance after the break. The Cheetahs know they will have to show considerable improvement in the second half if they want to get anything from this game.

40 The Stormers attack at a line-out on the Cheetahs' 22-metre line. The ball comes out to Taute who tries a drop goal, as there was an infringement by the Cheetahs forwards at a ruck and Coleman lines up a shot at goal.
