The battle to be make the top four takes a step up in intensity this round. With intensity however, came a shaky performance from both the Stormers and the Hurricanes as the encounter threatened to break the world record of the most handling errors in one half.
Though the second half didn't exactly live up to the full potential of such an exciting match-up, there was opportunity for some extravagant play (as shown here) from the home team. Watch for yourself and see the endeavor, strength and skill from the Stormers as hooker Schalk Brits dives over for this killer try.
So'ialo's Hurricanes hit back shortly after, but could not, in the end, over turn the Stormers and so slip to 6th on the log while the men from Cape Town leap to 4th (from 9th!).
Final Score: 20 - 12 to the Stormers
