The Reds was the better of the two teams in what was a really poor game of rugby on Friday when they beat the Stormers 24-12
The game just did not want to get going with both teams trying to play with ball in hand but hands were letting them down.
The Stormers had most of the opportunities in the first 26 minutes but struggled to make anything off it.
They had two tries disallowed in that period. The first one was a kick ahead and Willemse just could not dot it down before the ball went over the dead-ball line and the second Petersen just had a foot out as he went over in the corner.
The quality of rugby was just poor form both sides in all aspects.
The rest of the half showed no change with neither one of the two teams stepping up.
Kolisi was send off for ten minutes with a yellow card for just to many penalties at ruck time as they went into the break.
The Reds used the advantage of the extra man well and score two quick tries at the start of the second half to take a 14-0 lead.
With the return of Kolisi after his ten minutes Van Dyk went over for the Stormers first try.
With the score at 14-7 both teams went back to the poor quality they showed in the first half until Tate McDermott got over for the Reds third try and a lead of 21-7 with 10 to go.
The Stormers did manage another try at the end through De Allende but it was simply just not good enough.
SP Marais summed it up when he missed another easy conversion at the end of the game.
Next week they play the inform Rebels and that now looks like another loss for the Stormers.
Reds – Tries: Kerevi, Paenga-Amosa, McDermott. Conversions: Hegarty (3) Penalty: Hegarty.
