Stormers beat Cheetahs 33-0

Update: 2:31PM The Stormers earned their second successive win and their biggest victory of their Super Rugby season on Saturday, thrashing South African rivals the Cheetahs 33-0 in atrocious conditions in Cape Town.

Tries from Deon Fourie, Kobus van Wyk, Siya Kolisi and Sailosi Tagicakibau helped the home side build on last week's triumph over Western Force.

Kurt Coleman scored eight points with the boot, while his replacement Peter Grant added a penalty and the conversion to Kolisi's try to seal victory in heavy rain and swirling winds.

Neither side is in contention for the finals, meaning only pride was at stake at the Newlands Stadium.

The Cheetahs were strangely toothless as the Stormers led 15-0 after a first half.

The weather cleared in the second but the Stormers' dominance remained to move the Cape Town-based team move above the visitors and into 11th in the 15-team standings. The Cheetahs are 13th.
