Hello and welcome to our live coverage of this United Rugby Championship clash between the Stormers and the Lions at Cape Town's DHL Stadium.
1'
The Lions get the match underway at Cape Town Stadium.
3'
Good work from the Stormers on defence. They win a penalty for not releasing and then they use the opportunity to get out of their own half.
3'
The Lions force an early error from the Stormers and set up an attacking lineout just outside the 22 after winning a penalty.
6'
The Stormers look to scrum their way over, but the Lions hold firm and manage to intercept the ball shortly thereafter.
6'
The Stormers have a call in their favour near the try-line. Not sure whether that's a penalty or a scrum. Let's see what happens.
8'
Zeilinga goes for the chip over the top of the Stormers defence and Maxwane chases, but the Stormers get there first.
11'
CONVERSION, LIONS, ZEILINGA! 0-7: Zeilinga adds the extras from right under the posts.
11'
TRY, LIONS, HORN! 0-5: Tshituka powers through the defence and passes to Horn, who goes over for the try!
15'
PENALTY, LIONS, ZEILINGA! 0-10: The Lions get a kickable penalty and Zeilinga steps up to the tee, making no mistake. It was kickable, but not a gimme. That's a good strike.
16'
YELLOW CARD, STORMERS, MOERAT! Bad to worse for the Stormers as Moerat picks up a yellow card for an air shot from the restart.
17'
YELLOW CARD, LIONS, ALBERTS! Alberts picks up a yellow card now, so it's 14 against 14.
21'
Indiscipline is costing the Lions as they concede a string of penalties. Libbok goes for posts from one, but his kick goes wide.
24'
YELLOW CARD, LIONS, VAN DER MERWE! Van der Merwe picks up a yellow card now for a high tackle against his former side.
26'
The Stormers are back up to 15 men.
27'
TRY, STORMERS, UNGERER! 5-10: Ungerer gets the inside pass off an offload and darts through the defence to score the Stormers' first try!
29'
CONVERSION, STORMERS, LIBBOK! 7-10: Libbok steps up and slots the conversion over.
31'
TRY, STORMERS, SENATLA! 12-10: Nel puts the Lions on the back foot with the chip-and-chase. He is tackled, but the Stormers keep going, moving the ball nicely until Senatla goes over. This is going to be referred upstairs due to a possible forward pass.
32'
The try stands, but Libbok fails to convert. The Stormers lead 12-10.
36'
There's a lot of indiscipline creeping into this game and Marius van der Westhuizen calls the captains for a chat, giving a particularly stern warning to the Lions.
39'
PENALTY, LIONS, ZEILINGA! 12-13: The Stormers are blown up for offside. Zeilinga steps up and pops the penalty over.
41'
KICK-OFF! Libbok gets the second half underway for the Stormers.
41'
HALF-TIME: STORMERS 12-13 LIONS. We head into the break with the Lions one point to the good in Cape Town.
45'
TRY, LIONS, WARNER! 12-18: Lovely build-up play from the Lions and Warner is there to receive the offload from Simelane and finish off!
46'
CONVERSION, LIONS, ZEILINGA! 12-20: Zeilinga extends the lead back beyond a converted try.
49'
YELLOW CARD, LIONS, VISAGIE! 12-20: Visagie picks up a yellow card as the Lions make things difficult for themselves once again with indiscipline.
52'
The Lions throw the ball out of play, committing an unforced error on halfway.
56'
TRY, LIONS, TSHITUKA! 12-25: Odendaal goes on a marauding run and passes to Tshituka, who finishes off!
57'
CONVERSION, LIONS, ZEILINGA! 12-27.
63'
Sithole is penalised for offside. Play continues for a while, then the Stormers get the penalty. They take it quickly, but lose possession with the try-line at their mercy thanks to some great defending from the Lions.
66'
YELLOW CARD, STORMERS, PRETORIUS! Pretorius goes to the sin-bin for what is ruled to be a deliberate knock-on.
68'
Jannie du Plessis comes on and gets a warm welcome from the crowd. His son recently drowned and it's fantastic to see him playing regardless.
69'
PENALTY, LIONS, ZEILINGA! 12-30: Zeilinga pops another penalty over the posts and the Lions hit 30 points.
74'
The Stormers are on the attack. They have the advantage, but they're not showing much attacking flair. Eventually, they get the penalty for an offside from Jannie du Plessis.
77'
TRY, STORMERS, VENTER! 17-30: Venter burrows over after a sustained build-up!
78'
CONVERSION, STORMERS, SWIEL! 19-30.
79'
TRY, LIONS, HORN! 19-35: The Stormers lose the ball at the breakdown and the Lions pick up. Horn goes all the way for the try!
80'
CONVERSION, LIONS, ZEILINGA! 19-37: Zeilinga converts with a great kick from near the touchline.
81'
FULL-TIME: STORMERS 19-37. It was a scrappy game, but the Stormers were worse than the Lions and deserve this defeat on their own turf. Back to the drawing board for John Dobson's men. The Lions head off with a four-try win.
