CAPE TOWN - The Stormers won their second Super Rugby match of the season beating The Blues 27-16 at Newlands on Saturday evening.

It was a fast paced start to the game, both teams giving away two penalties each within the first 10 minutes.

A brilliant maul by the Stormers almost saw them get over the line but The Blues remained resolute in their defence.

However some good moves in the back line saw Nic Groom score the first try of the match.

But Demetri Catrakilis wasn't able to get them maximum points as he failed to convert the try.

Blues lock Hayden Triggs was then sent off for an off the ball punch involving captain Duane Vermeulen.

The Stormers then tried to make the most of being a man up and were camping in the blues half.

It paid off as Dillon Leyds made a fantastic run and dotted down the second try as Catrakilis converted.

Just one try was scored in the second half, Jimmy Cowan getting The Blues' only try of the game.
