    Cape Town - After Week 5 of the Vodacom Super Rugby season, the Stormers find themselves at the bottom of the try-scoring standings.

    Having played four matches to date, the Stormers have scored a total of FIVE tries - at an average of 1.25 per match.

    Questions over the Stormers' ability - or lack thereof - on attack have been raised for several seasons now, with the Stormers class of 2013 scoring the second fewest number of tries (30 in 18 matches at an average of 1.66) behind the Force (26).

    This year the Stormers scored one try in their opening defeat to the Lions, a single five-pointer in beating the Hurricanes at home, another solo effort in their loss against the Crusaders, before picking up two tries in losing to the defending champions Chiefs last weekend.

    The Stormers also boast a negative points differential of -40 (62 points scored, 102 points conceded) which sees them currently occupy fourth position in the South African Conference and 14th in the Overall standings.

    The Blues sit top of the try-scoring charts (13) followed by the Hurricanes (12).

    The Stormers' next match is against the Australian Conference table-topping Brumbies in Canberra on Saturday.

    Kick-off is at 10:40 SA time.
