DHL Stormers dominate in PE

February 8, 2014

The DHL Stormers cruised to a 40-7 win over the Kings in Port Elizabeth on Friday evening, as the Men from the Cape continued their build-up to the 2014 Vodacom Super Rugby season.


Scrumhalf Nic Groom scored a try double, whilst flanker Siya Kolisi scored a hat-trick of tries as the DHL Stormers converted their 26-7 half-time lead into a comfortable six tries to one victory.

Flyhalf Demetri Catrakilis kicked three conversions and replacement No.10 Gary van Aswegen added two in the second half as coach Allister Coetzee gave his entire bench a run in Port Elizabeth.


Fullback Jaco Taute, back from a serious knee injury, had a good run out as did Argentine lock Manuel Carizza in his first appearance for the DHL Stormers.

The DHL Stormers will take on Boland in Wellington next Saturday (kick-off 16h30), with the WP Vodacom Cup team playing the curtain-raiser at 14h00.

* The Stormers beat the Bulls 26-19 in Polokwane last weekend and will open their 2014 Super Rugby campaign against the Lions in Johannesburg on Saturday, February 22.
