Three great tries, scored by James O'Connor, Deon Fourie, and Jaque Fourie

Three great tries, scored by James O'Connor, Deon Fourie, and Jaque Fourie

The Stormers maintained their unbeaten run in this years Super Rugby tournament as they steamrolled the Force with a 51-16 win at Newlands in Cape Town on Saturday. These are three of the best tries that were scored in the match.

Namesakes Jaque and Deon Fourie - no relation scored two tries apiece as the Stormers put in one of the performances of the weekend, tearing apart the visiting Perth side. Flyhalf Peter Grant kicked 21 points, while Jean De Villiers and Andries Bekker also crossed for tries.

The visiting Force got all their points through young James OConnor, who scored an excellent individual effort and kicked the rest. There was some uncharacteristically questionable tackling on 20 year old O'Connor, but you can't take away from his great stepping and acceleration.

Hooker Deon Fourie scored the Stormers bonus point try with a brilliant individual effort down the right hand wing, while Jaque Fourie finished off a high quality team try, from turnover ball.

The six tries takes them to five from five in the tournament so far, with a trip to face the Sharks coming up next. Topping the overall table and remaining the only unbeaten side, the Stormers will be pleased with the news that Schalk Burger will be returning for that game in Durban.

Below are the three mentioned tries, which were the best of the game.
