The Stormers came from behind to cruise to a bonus-point 35-8 win over the Jaguares in Super Rugby on Friday.


The South African side claimed a third consecutive victory, but they trailed their conference rivals early on as a superb move saw Bautista Delguy deservedly open the scoring.

However, a group of Jaguares players soon got lost under a high ball and Daniel du Plessis pounced to score, turning the tide of the match.

The sides traded penalties before the break and the Jaguares kept pushing, but Siya Kolisi crossed for the first points of the second half, before Herschel Jantjies dummied through for a third home try.

And it was replacement Justin Phillips who secured the bonus point and wrapped up a comfortable win for the Stormers two minutes from time.
