The Stormers moved into second spot on the Super Rugby Unlocked log with 17 points from five games as a result of their 30-13 home victory over the Cheetahs on Saturday evening.
The Stormers made sure they stay in the hunt for top honours of the Super Rugby Unlocked when they outplayed the Cheetahs.
The first half saw a tight arm wrestle between the two sides, with the home side eventually edging ahead to lead by 13-3 at the halftime break. However, some enterprising play by Springboks Warrick Gelant and Damian Willemse - combined with some powerful scrumming in the second half, - secured a convincing win for the home team and a second loss in a row for the team from Bloemfontein.
The Cheetahs refused to cave in, and a spectacular Rosko Specman try from another counter-attack reduced to the deficit to just seven points, making for an interesting last quarter of playtime (20-13).
The visitors then gave away another penalty, this time for a transgression in the scrum, allowing Willemse to once more hit the target before Willemse was the architect of their third try when he broke the line and offloaded in the tackle to Gelant for an easy tap down to put the game beyond the reach of the Cheetahs.
