Match detail

We are waiting for the kick off.
The Stormers kick off and we are underway.
1.00: The Stormers make a strong start putting the Blues under some pressure until they knock on.
2.00: The Blues win the first scrum of the match and the Blues try to work the ball out of their 22.
4.00: Both teams try to use the high ball. Habana tries the chip kick but he outruns the ball and the Blues get the ball in the Stormers half on attack. The Stormers recover though and hold out the Blues attack.
5.00: Penalty to the Stormers in their half for not rolling away, Pieterson does not find touch so the Blues run the ball from inside their half.
8.00: After frantic 8 minutes of rugby the Blues are awarded a kickable penalty. Noakes will kick for posts from almost 42m out. He nails it and the Blues lead.
10.00: The Blues win their line out on the 22 but they can only kick the ball out. The Stormers then win the following line out and work the ball to the Blues 22m line.
12.00: The Stormers get through the Blues line on attack but Charles Piatau somehow gets the ball and the Blues attack. The Blues kick ahead and everyone chases but the touchline wins.
14.00: The Blues win a penalty from the scrum as Dewaldt Duvenage is offside at the back of the scrum. Noakes will kick for posts. The penalty came at a good time as Noakes kicked ahead and it went straight to Habana who would have been away. The ref had played advantage. Noakes slots the penalty.
18.00: The Stormers are kicking plenty of ball away. At the breakdown Deon Fourie goes in over the top so the Blues have a penalty and kick for touch.
19.00: The Stormers get into space and look certain to try as Gio Aplon races away, Rene Ranger comes in from nowhere and saves the try. The Stormers keep the ball alive and recycle. Bekker goes for the line to score but is short. We go to the TMO to check. No try but we go back for a Stormers penalty.
20.00: Joe Pietersen takes the penalty kick and slots it. The Stormers are on the board.
22.00: Another penalty for the Stormers. Pietersen kicks for touch.

25.00: Penalty to the Stormers. They kick for the corner. They set up the maul and drive forward. The Blues push them sideways and it collapses. The Stormers retain the ball and attack but the pass is loose and they knock on.
28.00: The Blues weather the "Storm" and Piri Weepu kicks for touch and finds it on the halfway line.
29.00: The Stormers have playing most of the rugby in the last 10 minutes. They win another penalty so Pietersen will kick for posts. He misses it from 40 m out.
34.00: The Bleus win a penalty. Noakes takes the shot and nails it.
35.00: The Stormers kick deep again but the Blues take the mark. They kick deep.
36.00:The Blues kick high, Habana goes for the ball and knocks it back and out but the match officials say the Blues knocked it on.
37.00: The Blues get one of their best attacking opportunity and they initially get through, Jean de Villiers and Aplon force the Blues to pass and the ball goes out. The Stormers field kicking is a bit shoddy at the moment giving the Blues opportunities.
