Seabelo Senatla bags hat-trick as Stormers hammer Zebre


Seabelo Senatla scored a hat-trick of tries as the Stormers claimed a comfortable 55-7 United Rugby Championship victory over Zebre Parma in Stellenbosch.


The hosts had a bonus point wrapped up by the 23rd minute at the Danie Craven Stadium, as Manie Libbok, Damian Willemse, Leolin Zas and Senatla all touched down in a blistering start.

Scarra Ntubeni added the fifth shortly before half-time, with Libbok converting all but one of those tries.

Erich Cronje stopped the rot by going over for Zebre early in the second period, but Zas and Ntubeni added second scores and Senatla completed his treble, while the visitors had Asaeli Tuivuaka red-carded for a brazen swinging arm to Zas’ head prior to the home side’s final two tries.

Victory lifts the Stormers into the URC’s top eight, while Zebre are without a win in any competition since February 2021.
