Well done to the Chiefs!

Their attacking play was simply sublime. They won the breakdown battle and were smarter than their opponents.

The Stormers should never have made those prop substitutions so early, not with a scrum so dominant. They also started with the wrong halfbacks. Tactically, they ended up playing right into the hands of their opponents.

Some disappointing decisions made by the Stormers' management before and throughout this game.

14 Mar 16:50
FULL-TIME: Stormers 19-28 Chiefs
14 Mar 16:50
80'- Kolbe is bundled out to end a miserable afternoon from the Stormers...
14 Mar 16:49
79'- Inside the final minute now as the Stormers set up a lineout just outside the Chiefs 22m area...
14 Mar 16:47
77'- And... Carizza loses possession of it and the Chiefs clear far up-field. So much for going for the losing bonus point there...
14 Mar 16:46
76'- Side entry from the ensuing maul from the Chiefs yields another Stormers penalty. Again the Stormers kick it out...
14 Mar 16:45
75'- A scrum penalty to the Stormers. It's close to the touchline and they opt for the attacking lineout. I would kick for goal there. It would at least put them in bonus point territory...
14 Mar 16:43
Capacity today at Newlands: 42 232
14 Mar 16:41
73' - Like the commentators say, the Stormers have been outsmarted here today...

70'- TRY to the Chiefs!
14 Mar 16:37
68'- My word, Cruden misses an absolute sitter of a penalty attempt. Did not see that one coming...
14 Mar 16:36
67'- Another Chiefs penalty at scrum time as Alistair Vermaak is penalised for dropping his bind...
14 Mar 16:33
65'- The Chiefs win a kickable penalty, but opt to take a quick tap. The move ends in accidental obstruction and a chance at three points has gone begging for the visitors...
14 Mar 16:32
64'- Stormers running hard at the Chiefs now, but too many passes are going behind the man which puts the whole backline on the backfoot...
14 Mar 16:30

62'- Apologies for the delay.

In the meantime, the Stormers have made a whole host of replacements while Catrakilis has also slotted a PENALTY.

54'- A powerful Stormers scrum sees them turn over possession!
14 Mar 16:20
53'- An untidy lineout from the Chiefs, but they'll get a five-metre scrum after the Stormers are forced to dot down dead...
14 Mar 16:19
52'- Another penalty to the Chiefs as the Stormers are caught off-side. Again, they set up an attacking lineout...
14 Mar 16:17

50'- Chiefs running the Stormers ragged now. They win another kickable penalty bu they set up an attacking lineout instead...

47'- James Lowe rounds off under the posts after a brilliant backline move. It came off the back of a Chiefs scrum under pressure, but they managed to secure possession to swing it wide. Stormers not tackling out wide...
14 Mar 16:12
47'- TRY to the Chiefs!
14 Mar 16:10
44'- What happened to the Stormers having another top-class scrumhalf on their wish list?
14 Mar 16:09
44'- Groom makes a terrible error when he kicks out directly into touch. It's just outside the Stormers 22m area...
14 Mar 16:08

43'- Prop Jamie Mackintosh is now on for the Chiefs. Pauliasi Manu is the man off.

They simply had to change in the front row...

14 Mar 16:07
42'- After several phases of attack, the Stormers concede a penalty close to the Chiefs 22 when Kolisi goes-off side at a ruck...

14 Mar 15:51
40'- The Chiefs win a penalty and they opt for goal. It's about 20m in-field and should be slotted by Cruden.
14 Mar 15:50
39'- Again, Coleman fails to find touch with his clearance which gives the Chiefs one more chance before half-time.
