Chiefs go down to Stormers

In the first match of the Super 14 this weekend the Stormers host the Chiefs. The Stormers ditched their normal black jerseys and played in a strip not unlike their Western Province blue and white hoops.

Clearly the jersey change refreshed the Stormers as the match saw the Stormers first try of the season and they led the Chiefs 14 to 13 at half time.

As the half time siren sounded Luke Watson dived over the line with the ball and the ref went upstairs. The TV ref said, “No”.

Instead Referee, Paul Marks awarded a penalty to the Stormers but Peter Grant sent the ball wide.

In the second half the Stormer continued their improved form and Jean de Villiers scored another try for the home team.


In the second half the Chiefs could only add a penalty.
