Thanks for tuning in!

In next weekend's action, the Stormers travel to Port Elizabeth to tackle the Kings, while the Jaguares are at home against the Lions.

Stay tuned to Sport24 for the later game (19:30) between the Cheetahs and Bulls in Bloemfontein.

04 Mar 19:01


Stormers centre EW Viljoen has received the best player award.

04 Mar 19:00

Well done to the Stormers. A deserved win, but there is lots to work on, especially on defence. Their handling at times was also worrisome, but coach Robbie Fleck will be satisfied with the set-pieces and the enterprise shown on attack.

The Jaguares' discipline again let them down when it really mattered. Again they received two yellow cards which in the end proved costly - as it should.

04 Mar 18:57

Stormers 614m

Jaguares 339m

73 '- Jaguares now back to 15 men as Matera and Moroni both return from the sin-bin.

Under the new laws, no goal-kick is needed.

Stormers 27-18 Jaguares

04 Mar 18:38
63'- The Stormers will scrum again - they simply have to score here...
04 Mar 18:38
63'- YELLOW CARD for Moroni as the Jaguares are reduced to 13 men.

  • 80'

    FULL TIME: A hard fought game comes to an end, as the Jaguares earns a losing bonus point. At one stage we thought that the home team would run away with it. That was not to be as the visitors dominated possession in the second half.

    YELLOW CARD, JAGUARES, MORONI! 20-18: The Stormers feed another scrum and Kriel finds a gap, but it is a penalty to the Stormers again. The TMO is in action for a potential deliberate slam down of the ball. They find that MORONI is guilty and he is off.

    Du Toit who conceded the penalty wins back one in the lineout. Good work. A long kick by Marais means a lineout inside their opponents 22.

  • 59'

    Matera sets up another drive inside their half. Du Toit is then penalised for a high tackle. That was silly. The Jaguares sets up a lineout.

  • 40'

    PENALTY, JAGUARES, SANCHEZ! 17-11: Matera drives deep inside Stormers territory. The Stormers tackle well but eventually we have a penalty to the Jaguares, as Du Toit is penalised. They go for goal and Sanchez makes no mistake.

  • 40'

    The Stormers deserve to be in front, but they should not take their opponents lightly and it was also very silly to hand them a gift of three points, just on the stroke of Half time.

  • 40'


  • 38'

    The Stormers drive from the scrum and the pressure leads to a penalty in a kickable position and they go for goal. What a waste as Du Plessis sends it wide. They should have gone for touch.
