Super 15 (Matchday 13) : Stomers end Bulls unbeaten run
After leading 6-3, Werner Kruger’s team mates conceeded ten points including one try after the break and never really found their feet back into the game. This slip by the Bulls is good news for the Stomers . The Cape Town team made the difference thanks to Eben Etzebeth named man of the match due to his busy day on the pitch though he did not score. Slim victory 19-13 but big repercussions as the Stomers move on top of the Super 15 table.
At the bottom of the table, the Lions are almost drowning after their tenth defeat in eleventh games. Good come back for Sharks in the top 6 after their impressive form in Bloemfontein against Cheetahs notably with four tries for Pietersen, Fréderic Michalak, Lwazi
Mvovo and Meyer Bosman
