Match detail

We are waiting for the kick off.

2.00: The Stormers get to within 5m of the line and knock forward. However we go back for a penalty. The Stormers will kick for posts.
3.00: Peter Grant takes the kick and nails it. The Stormers lead.
5.00: The Rebels enjoy some good attacking ball but James Hilgendorf boots it the the into touch.
7.00: The Stormers win their line out and attack but Jono Owen goes off his feet and the Stormers have a penalty. Grant will kick for posts again. He nails it and the Stormers lead by 6.
10.00: Hilgendorf kicks for territory and Gerrard chases. Joe Pietersen has to get back and kicks the ball into touch but the Rebels gain half the field.
11.00: The Rebels disrupt the Stormers line out but the Stormers keep control of the ball. The Stormers then break through the defence twice as they get the ball almost to the 5m line.
12.00: Habana gets the ball and races over the line but he is called back as Rodney Blake tackled him and he did not release so the Rebels are called back for a penalty.
14.00: The Rebels kick for touch but the Stormers counterattack and Juan de Jongh slips through the defence and scores the first TRY of the match. Peter Grant adds the conversion.
16.00: The Rebels kick for territory and Joe Pietersen gets back but boots the ball straight into touch. The Rebels win the line out and go through the phases trying to make ground.
18.00: Rebels make steady progress but there is a forward pass which ends their momentum.
20.00: The Rebels are gaining momentum in the Stormers 25. They steadily make ground but then Andries Bekker steals the ball and the Stormers kick it out.
22.00: The Rebels are on attack again in the Stormers 25 but Gio Aplon collides with Rynhardt Elstadt and he goes straight down. He looks like he is out so the game is paused. After he gets some attention Aplon gets up and carries on. Probably not the best idea to stay on.
25.00: The Rebels attack about 8m out but they go to ground and don't release and Deon Fourie wins a penalty. Pietersen kicks for touch.

37.00: Penalty inside their half for the Stormers. Pietersen kicks for touch.
39.00: The Stormers win their line out by going to Deon Fourie who is normally a hooker. They get the maul going but it goes nowhere really.
40.00: The siren sounds but we have time for a penalty. Grant will kick for posts.
41.00: Grant nails the penalty. It's half time.

The half time score was Stormers 16 Rebels 0

The second half is underway.
44.00: The Rebels continue where they left off in the first half by dominating possession but not being able to do much with the ball. The Stormers knock on so the Rebels have a scrum.
45.00: The Rebels swing the ball at pace down the line and they make huge ground but Lachlan Mitchell is brought to ground and the Stormers turn the ball over and then Pietersen kicks it out.
