    Cheetahs just making way too many errors this game. Some of them forced by what has been a very aggressive tackling display by the Stormers.

    The break seems to have done the Cape players good and the Cheetahs bad.

  • 52

    A penalty sees the ball kicked into touch for a Stormers line out in the Cheetahs 22. Can it be??

  • 53

    Another line out now on the 5 meter line, last move of the match.

  • 54

    Knock on, time, Stormers take this one comfortably in which is their best winning margin so far this season. I think.

  • 55

    Yip, no 4 tries for the Stormpoppies but a good win never the less. Staat will just need to win or draw next week to go through to the playoffs.

  • 56

    Kolisi my man of the match. Showing what Meyer sees in him. Shifting into the no 2 spot behind Flo in the Bok pecking order.

    Brussow good, but not nearly as good as Siya this match.

  • 57

    Ok fellas that’s me out. Ciao a tutti!

  • 58

    that win exceeded my expectations
    just can’t seem to get that bonus point, but a very impressive win none the less
    I’m very happy

    Pretty much a mixture of both
    Stormers played well the second half, but the Cheetah’s didn’t look like they pitched up for the game.
    They have put themselves in a very difficult position
    If they at least managed to lose with a bonus point it could have helped, but 28 to 3 is a hiding in anyone’s book
    The Blues are going to be a tough game for them next week
    I hope they pull that one off, will be nice to see them in the top 6

  • 66

    Fuck. How did this happen?
    Even though I haven’t seen the game I blame HM for coach the Cheetahs players like shit over the last few weeks. Angry

    het meer gedrink as n klein land se GDP en was elke slukkkie werd, STORMERS rock eenvoudig en opppad terug waar hulle hoort
    Nou bring daai grootbek Bullies oor 2 weke

  • 68

    66 @ Loosehead:
    Only saw 2nd half.

    Some bad luck, some poor play, some VERY poor ref’s decisions.

    I thought Berry would become a good ref’, but he hes regressed in the last couple of seasons IMO.

    After thinking about the game whole day I come to this conclusion.

    The Cheetahs where “windgat” and tried to run with the wrong balls. The Stormers on the other hand liked the free, wild running by the Cheetahs and they tackled their and the poor Cheetahs heart out.
    It was actually funny to see how stupid the Cheetahs played, they better find a better no. 10 this week.

    in the process they forced the pace and far too many 50/50 passes were thrown. That made the handling stats more ugly

    @ superBul:
    Lots of handling errors on both sides. For the first 50 minutes it was a total snore fest.

    Came alight towards the end though.
