A comprehensive win for the Stormers, who dominated all aspects of this game. They also claimed that vital four-try bonus-point.

30 May 2015

81'- But a huge tackle from Jones on Pretorius forces a knock on. The Stormers look to run back at the Cheetahs but they also knock it on to end game...

30 May 2015

80'- The Cheetahs win a turnover close to their own tryline and launch an attack from deep... they surge into the 22m area...

However, referee Joubert wants to go back for a possible high tackle. Again on Kolbe...

30 May 2015

79'- Benjamin gets the ball on the wing, chips over the Stormers defence, but Kolbe saves the day as he boots it dead.

The Cheetahs will have a scrum five metres out...

30 May 2015

30 May 2015

71'- The Stormers counter from deep, but unfortunately Kolbe's pass to Senatla is a poor one, low onto the ground, which the winger can't control...

30 May 2015

POSSESSION AFTER 70 MINUTES

Stormers 76%

Cheetahs 24%

30 May 2015

69'- Cheetahs sub: Van Wyk on at fullback, replacing Blommetjies.

67'- Coleman misses the conversion. He has no confident kicking goal at present...

Stormers 42-7 Cheetahs

30 May 2015

67'- Sikhumbuzo Notshe rounds off a great move. It was a great break in midfield from De Jongh, who off-loaded to the flanker at full speed...

30 May 2015

67'- TRY to the Stormers!

30 May 2015

65'- Stormers subs: Skipper Duane Vermeulen is off, replaced by Kolisi. Kolisi was only off with a blood substitution so he's allowed back on.

Jean Kleyn is on at lock for Manuel Carizza.

Kurt Coleman is also on for Demetri Catrakilis.

30 May 2015

65'- That was also the BONUS POINT try for the Stormers!

63'- TRY to the Stormers!

30 May 2015

61'- Stormers subs: Schreuder and Jones on, Groom and De Allende off.

30 May 2015

61'- The Stormers have all the territory and possession, but can they claim that elusive fourth try?

30 May 2015

58'- BG Uys just on at prop for the Cheetahs and now he's also penalised. Kitshoff surely must make the Springbok team this year!

30 May 2015

57'- Stormers sub: Sikhumbuzo Notshe replaces Siya Kolisi.

30 May 2015

55'- Cheetahs sub: BG Uys on at prop for Danie Minnie.

30 May 2015

53'- The Cheetahs have a scrum in a promising position inside Stormers territory, but again they are penalised.

The Stormers definitely boast the strongest scrum in the competition. Never thought I'd say that a few years ago...

30 May 2015

50'- Cheetahs sub: Rayno Benjamin on at wing, replacing Raymond Rhule.

30 May 2015

49'- CONVERSION slotted by Catrakilis.

30 May 2015

48'- TRY to the Stormers!

30 May 2015

47'- That high tackle was definitely a penalty, not 100% sure it was a yellow card...

30 May 2015

46'- YELLOW CARD

Cheetahs No 8 Henco Venter gets 10 minutes in the sin-bin for a high tackle on Cheslin Kolbe. A bit harsh, and Kolbe is also the shortest player on the field...

30 May 2015

46'- TMO CALL

A Cheetahs player could be in trouble for a high tackle on Cheslin Kolbe.

30 May 2015

46'- Unfortunately for the Stormers, Mbonambi misses his jumpers. He must the worst lineout thrower in the competition...

30 May 2015

45'- Huge pressure on the Cheetahs scrum as they concede another penalty there. It's in range, but Catrakilis sets up a lineout inside the red zone...

30 May 2015

43'- Juan de Jongh makes a sniping break down the grandstand touchline, but then passes the ball into a Cheetahs player. He then gets penalised for diving on a player on the ground. De Jongh's distribution and handling skills have been weak today...

30 May 2015

40'- Cheetahs sub: Sarel Pretorius is on at scrumhalf for Tian Meyer.

30 May 2015

Welcome back for the second half!

Joe Pietersen gets play started...

30 May 2015

HALF-TIME: Stormers 23-7 Cheetahs

30 May 2015

40'- NO TRY!

Replays show it was a legitimate tackle and that De Jongh knocked it on.

30 May 2015

40'- TMO CALL

De Jongh appears to have knocked it on close to the line, but the referee wants to check for a possible early tackle.

Also, perhaps check for a try, because Carr picked it up and scored...

30 May 2015

39'- Another kickable penalty to the Stormers just before half-time. They opt for an attacking lineout instead...
