MATCH REPORT: Highlanders 57-14 Stormers

28 Apr 2017

The Stormers have been taught a rugby lesson again today! The gulf between the Kiwi sides and the rest of the pack is quite simply frightening.

The Stormers had a lot of possession but seemed clueless what to do with ball in hand.

Also, their defence remains atrocious but I guess that's what happens when you appoint a defence coach to "learn on the job"...
