George - The Stormers ran in six tries as they secured a comfortable 40-15 victory over the South Western Districts Eagles in their pre-season friendly at Outeniqua Park in George on Saturday.

The Stormers scored two tries in the first half and four in the second, in front of an enthusiastic crowd in George, in a convincing display in the sweltering heat.
