Stormers win at home

SYDNEY - The defensive dam wall finally broke for the Western Force as they crashed to a 24-8 Super Rugby loss to the lowly Stormers in Cape Town.

Looking for a franchise record eighth win of the season, the Perth-based franchise didn't get a foothold in the game until the final quarter, by which time they were 24-3 down.

The Stormers, who started the game yesterday at the bottom of the ladder, scored three tries to one.

The Force were starved of possession in the first half, which ended with the Stormers tallying over 70 per cent in both categories.

"They came out firing and we couldn't absorb it and couldn't go back at them," Force captain and flanker Matt Hodgson said.

"We couldn't run down that lead, I thought we did a much better job in the second half and they defended quite well."
