Lions shock Stormers in URC clash in Cape Town — Citizens

Lions’ stunning all-round performance gave Stormers the power to defeat Stormers 37-19 (half-time 13-12) in the United Rugby Challenge clash at Cape Town Stadium on Saturday night.

Both the Lions and the Stormers entered each other’s 22m, but couldn’t find the finish, so the match got off to a terrible start with end-to-end play.

Then the Lions first attacked in 10 yearsNS The moment they attacked from the lineout, fly-half Fred Zeilinga popped a pass, broke into 22m, offloaded to the eighth Franke Horn and scored under the pole, Zeilinga 7-0. Turned to lead.

15-year Scrum Penalty for LionsNS One minute later, seeing Zeilinga raise 10 points from range, in front of two quick yellow cards, one tacks the player in the air to Stormers captain Salmaan Moerat, and the other is Lions Willem. It became a tackle that locked Albert and did not use his arm. 14 to 14.

Manny Ribock missed the penalty in front of the post before Lions wing Edwill van der Melwe received the yellow on the 22nd.NS I accidentally pulled the wing on the other side of Seabelo Senatla and tried to tackle it, 14 to 13.

The Stormers then took the lead by counting their advantages and scoring two goals when Moerat returned to the field.

Prop’s Neethling Fouche spawned scrum-half Stefan Ungerer and Senatla offroads, and Libbok converted only one to a lead 12-10 after 31 minutes, so neither attempt came from a counterattack from Lions Clearance where no touch was found. I did.

A Zeilinga penalty was imposed one minute before half-time, and the Lions took a slender one-point lead.

The Lions then created a glittering second half performance to outperform the Stormers comprehensively and steal power in three trials.

First came in 45 yearsNS The moment the Lions attacked from the Stormers Half Scrum, the central Wandisile Simelane broke into 22m, passed the Scrum Half Andre Warner, and scored a dot next to the post.

Lions Hooker Jaco Visage issued a yellow card in 1948.NS The amount that the Stormers did not roll down on the rack after invading Lions 22m. However, it did not affect the visitor, as the visitor defeated the man and went further.

From the lineout along the way, the ball was popped by captain Burger Odendaal, broke through the Stormers defense and rushed into 22m, offloaded to Flying Tsutsuka, and Zeilinga scored with an extra.

A 69NS After that, Zeilinga was penalized slightly and the Lions moved up at 30-12. The Stormers finally recorded a comforting attempt with three minutes remaining as alternate hooker Andre Hugo Venter crashed from close range and alternate fly-half Tim Swiel added conversions.

The Lions then made the final decision directly from the kick-off that the Stormers knocked off, and the Lions picked up the ball and passed it to the horn, running second. Zeilinga nailed the touchline transformation to maintain perfect kick performance.


Stormers – Trials: Stefan Ungerer, Seabelo Senatla, Andre Hugo-Venter; Conversions: Manny Ribock, Tim Swiel

Lions – Trial: Francke Horne (2), Andre Warner, Vincent Tshituka; Conversion: Fred Zeilinga (4); Penalty: Fred Zeilinga (3)
