Paul De Wet scored a dramatic late try as the Stormers held off a Bulls fightback to claim a 30-26 United Rugby Championship win in Pretoria.
Jake White’s men were caught off guard as their visitors made a strong start, with Seabelo Senatla touching down twice from a pair of Manie Libbok grubber kicks.
However, Johan Grobbelaar went over in the final act of the first half, and Madosh Tambwe and Embrose Papier crossed after the break to swing the match in the hosts’ favour.
Elrigh Louw and Herschel Jantjies then exchanged tries, but De Wet’s intervention four minutes from time proved decisive.
The Stormers were aided by 10 points from the boot of Libbok, while Morne Steyn kicked four points for the Bulls and Chris Smith scored one conversion.
