DHL Stormers smash Toyota Cheetahs


The Stormers, outscored, outplayed and outsmart the Cheetahs on Saturday scoring 8 tries to 1 in beating them 53-10.

Game started as expected with both teams trying ech other out on defense with some strong runs from the forwards linking with the backs.

The Stormers got the first penalty for points which Du Preez got over to give them the early lead of 3-0 after 5 min.

The Stormers got the first try over with some great hands and Leyds over in the corner to take the lead to 8-0.

The Stormers truned it on again with SP Marias who took a nice line and through the Cheetahs defense. This gave the Stormers a 15-3 lead.

While the Stormers attack looked good first up the Cheeths attack looked aimless and with no plan which they found easy to defend against.

Picking Lee on the wing seemed to have been a big mistake from Smith as both Leyds tries came from poor defense from Lee.

The Stormers went into the lead at the break with 22-3 dominating the game.

The Stormers did not led up a they score their forth try straight after halftime with SP Marais again the man that created the space. This gave them a 29-3 lead.

The Cheetahs got their frist try from a five meter lineout which they drive over to reduce the lead to 29-10.

Du Preez then add some magic with  little kick over the defense nd garther it himself which he scored the Stormers 5th try of the match.

The Stormers then turned to their forwards to work their wy over and score their 6th try of the match.

The Stormers then displayed their qaulity in the offload and quick hands to score yet another try which gave them a 48-10 lead.

  1. Jeez this Cheetahs side is woeful.

    Guess we will have to wait till next week to see where the Stormers really are in the pecking order.

  2. @Craven: The Cheetahs ar ehorrible and to make things worse, Smith is Bok backline coach. Saw nothing from their backs. And to then make it even worse, My Bulle lost to these fools.

  3. @Aldo:

    Franco Smith with his Harry Viljoen headless play alongside Brendan Venter and his pragmatic exit game and tactical defence and all this with AC yet again being carried under the pretense of being the coach… tut tut!

  4. @bryce_in_oz: The Cheetahs do remind me of the Harry Viljoen days. Run everything, even when on the backfoot. Don’t worry about exit plans, we will run it out of our 22. Much like the Nollis masterplan of a ruck behind the poles last week against the Blues. It’s all about shocking the oppositon, so that when finally you manage to hold onto a ball on attack, they don’t expect it. It will carry us well through the latter part of the superrugby tournament.

  5. @Aldo:

    Aldo, your talk of the Nollis “masterplan” reminds of a quote from the Blackadder series:

  6. Hahaha, Craven. It is the only thing I can think off. The unwillingness to look at our issues in superrugby by our coaches and management, makes me feel like crying.
