The Stormers rediscovered their winning touch but were made to fight hard for a 31-22 bonus-point victory over the Lions in Johannesburg.

John Dobson’s men – the defending URC champions – saw their 14-match winning run in the competition halted by a draw at the Ospreys in round five before losing at Cardiff last weekend.

But they arrested that brief slump at Emirates Airline Park on Saturday against a Lions side who have now lost all three of their home matches this season, having won all three away.

The Lions led 22-10 at half-time as Henco van Wyk’s try was complemented by a combined 17 points from the boots of Jordan Hendrikse and Sanele Nohamba.

A Stormers rally in the second half saw Sacha Mngomezulu, Clayton Blommetjies and Nama Xaba all go over, while Manie Libbok kicked eleven points in total.
