The Stormers beat the Bulls 18-13 at Cape Town Stadium on Saturday to be crowned United Rugby Championship winners in the inaugural season.

It was success at long last for a franchise that had developed a reputation of losing big games in the Super Rugby era.

And after going down 7-0 early on and being bullied by the Bulls, alarm bells were again ringing. But the Stormers pulled themselves together to turn the tables on their rivals from Pretoria.

The hosts, spurred on by a boisterous 31 000-strong home crowd, were sublime in the second stanza and deserved their win.

There were wild celebrations on the pitch, and those cheers extended to the changeroom afterwards.

Take a look at images below of the Stormers celebrating in style:
