Tim Swiel's penalty earns the Stormers comeback Rainbow Cup win over the Lions
The Lions had looked set to clinch victory in their Rainbow Cup clash after edging into a 37-29 lead with less than five minutes to play.
But centre Dan Du Plessis scored a try to round off a brilliant move which began deep in his side’s own half, with Swiel converting to make it a one-point game.
The Stormers, who trailed 22-15 at half-time, pushed forward once more and were rewarded with the decisive penalty, which Swiel converted from mid-range.
Swiel’s heroics handed the Stormers their first win in the competition after two defeats, while the Lions have now lost three games in a row.
