Lions thrashed

CAPE TOWN, South Africa - The Stormers snapped a five-match losing streak and lifted themselves off the foot of the Super Rugby table with an 18-3 victory over the Lions yesterday.

Both sides were missing a string of key players because of injury, but the Stormers showed superior squad depth as they recorded just their second win.

After the Stormers swept to an 18-0 lead at half-time thanks to tries from Damian de Allende and Nizaam Carr, a scrappy second-half produced just three points for the visitors. The result put the Stormers above the Cheetahs in the table, while the Lions remained 10th as their promising start to the season threatens to amount to little.
