    Cape Town - Everyone knew that the Stormers v Chiefs encounter at Newlands on Saturday would be the standout fixture of Week 7 of the 2017 Super Rugby season.

    It certainly didn't disappoint!

    With both sides unbeaten heading into the match, the two teams went hammer and tongs at each other.

    Not only was some incredible defence on offer, especially by the Stormers in the final five minutes, but the attacking play was at times, sublime.

    Below are the two tries that will certainly have rugby fans talking for the next few months.

    The first was finished off by Chiefs wing, Tony Pulu, but it was diminutive fullback, Damian McKenzie, that started the move from his own tryline with the ball moving through eight pairs of hands in the build up. 

    The second came from a Cheslin Kolbe intercept. Kolbe, realising he was about to be tackled, kicked the ball ahead with Dillyn Leyds collecting it. The Stormers wing was just caught from behind but while on the ground threw an incredible 20m behind-the-back-pass to SP Marais who went over in the corner. 

    Both tries were simply sensational!

    Watch below.
