The Lions showed no mercy by humbling a SWD Eagles and Border Bulldogs combination 88-0 in their warm-up match in George on Tuesday.
Less good news for the Stormers is that hooker Deon Fourie broke a bone in his hand and is ruled out for six weeks.
Fourie and Tiaan Liebenberg are the first-choice hookers in the squad and now Siyabonga Ntubeni will come into the frame as the second-choice No.2.
The Johannesburg side were near full strength and made the most of the outing as part of their preparations for the Super Rugby season.
The Lions lead 33-0 at half-time, before putting the foot on the gas in the second half, during which their opposition lost two players to the sin bin.
