  • FULL TIME - It is all over in Johannesburg!  The Lions have returned to the winners list with a comprehensive eight try to four, 52-31 victory.  The Stormers were gallant in defeat and squared the second half however all the damage was done in the first half.  A special mention to man of the match Madosh Tambwe who had a hat-trick to his name within the opening quarter hour and finished the match with four tries.
    '
  • A fitting reward for the Stormers who have fought this contest right to the last!  Referee Jaco Peyper has had enough and, after repeated penalties against the Lions, awards the Stormers a penalty try and brings the contest to an end.
    80'+5''
  • Try
    PENALTY TRY! Stormers 52-31 Lions
    80'+5''
  • The two sets of forwards will pack down yet again, almost four minutes after the final siren - full credit to the Stormers who are fighting this contest right out to the final whistle.
    80'+4''
  • The Stormers continue to hammer away at the Lions' line after the full time siren - the defence of the home side, a man down with Marvin Orie sitting in the bin, are only just hanging on here!
    80'+2''
  • A penalty against the Lions will give the Stormers a chance to set up a line out inside the attacking 22 - after a difficult evening for the visitors, they would love to try and restore some pride with a try before the full time siren.
    79''
  • Yellow Card
    YELLOW CARD!  Referee Jaco Peyper loses his patience with Marvin Orie for repeated indiscretions and banishes the Lions' lock to the sin bin for the final four and a half minutes.
    76''
  • Outstanding play from Raymond Rhule!  With some brilliant footwork, the winger weaves a path through the Lions' defence before drawing in the last defender and handing off to Paul de Wet for the visitors' third try.

  • The Lions have conceded a free kick at the line out - the Stormers elect to take the scrum feed and will pack down just 5m out from the Lions' line.
    69''
  • The Lions are penalised inside their own territory which gives Dillyn Leyds a chance to pin the home side inside their 22 with a kick for touch deep in the corner.
    66''
  • The Lions have broken through the half-century mark!  Terrific hands from the home side who spread the ball quickly catching the Stormers' defence short of numbers out to the right - on the overlap, the last receiver is Ruan Combrinck who dives over in the corner.

  • A terrific consolation try to the Stormers!  Damian Willemse, who went within an inch of scoring just a few minutes ago, adds his name to the scoresheet - the young flyhalf finds some space after spinning out of the tackle before diving for the line and finding the paint.

  • A standing ovation for Madosh Tambwe who comes from the field with an injury concern - the young winger set alight Ellis Park this evening with a hat-trick inside the opening fifteen minutes and then added a further five-pointer in the second half to finish the match with four tries.
    56''
  • The Lions simply can do no wrong this evening!  Elton Jantjies pokes a kick out to the left that looks to be well covered by Damian Willemse however Madosh Tambwe floats in from the left to snatch the ball before leaving the Stormers' defence grasping at thin air on his way to his fourth try.

    50''
  • The Stormers recycle the ball through 10 phases but the visitors are lacking the potency in attack of their opponents this evening.
    49''
  • The Lions continue to pile on the points with the first try of the second half!  An outstanding team try - Elton Jantjies ghosts through a gap in the defensive line before handing off to Marvin Orie who in turn offloads to Franco Mostert and the skipper strides away to the line.

    43''
  • The Lions continue to assert their territorial dominance with Andries Coetzee driving a kick into touch deep inside the Stormers' 22.
    42''
  • SECOND HALF - The Lions kick off and we are back underway in Johannesburg!
    40''
  • HALF TIME - It's half time in Johannesburg.  The Lions, coming off two losses in a row, have made a real statement in the first half.  It was an explosive start from the Lions, and Madosh Tambwe in particular with the home side posting three tries in the first 15 minutes.  The Stormers responded well however a Kwagga Smith try after the siren will make it difficult for the visitors going into the second half.  At the break, it is the Lions leading by 31-10 over the Stormers.
    '
  • The Lions land a huge blow going into half time!  A powerful blitz from Kwagga Smith who bursts through two tackles on his way to the try line.

  • We are inside the final minute with the Lions in excellent field position inside the Stormers' 22 - a try here would be enormous going into the half time break.
    40''
  • Try
    NO TRY!  Disappointment for the Stormers who appeared to have scored a brilliant try via Jano Vermaak however the ref has spotted something and the TMO confirms that EW Viljoen had lost the ball forward in the lead up.
    37''
  • SP Marais makes no mistake with his penalty goal attempt to reduce the Lions' advantage to two converted tries approaching half time.

  • The Stormers spread the ball wide to the left however Damian Willemse runs into a wall of Lions' defenders and is bundled into touch - in any case, advantage was being played and so play will come back for the visitors.
    34''
  • Andries Coetzee thumps the ball long down field looking to once again fence the Stormers in inside their own territory however he has overcooked the kick which lands over the touch line on the full.
    32''
  • Outstanding play from Ruan Combrinck who spots a gap in behind the Stormers' defence and unloads a bullet-like kick that rolls into touch, pinning the visitors down deep inside their territory.
    31''
  • The Lions strike back!  Elton Jantjies, at full tilt, hands off to Lionel Mapoe on his right and the outside centre is away with just the try line ahead - he is almost caught in the tackle by the desperate Dillyn Leyds but his momentum takes him all the way.
    27''
  • MISS! The conversion attempt from Elton Jantjies starts out to the left and stays there.

  • After being shellshocked in the opening 15 minutes, the Stormers have done well to stem the tide and work their way back into the contest.
    25''
  • The Stormers are on the scoreboard!  Wilco Louw has plenty of work to do but the prop powers through the tackle before crashing over the line and touching down - an excellent response from the visitors.

    18''
  • The Stormers desperately need to slow down the tempo of this match which has been played at a frenetic pass right from the opening kick off.
    17''
  • MADOSH TAMBWE!  Terrific understanding between the winger and Andries Coetzee with the full back chipping the ball into space on the left hand side for the run of Madosh Tambwe who leaves the defence in his wake on the way to scoring his hat-trick try.

    12''
  • It's try number two for Madosh Tambwe and the Lions!  The ball spins out to the right from the breakdown and, from close range, there is no stopping the explosive Madosh Tambwe who reaches out to find the paint.
