Lions 18 (18) vs Stormers 56 (23)

Lions humiliated by Stormers

Stormers score eight tries and get their season back on track 

The Lions did themselves no favours with one of their worst displays ever, going down 56-18 to the Stormers at Newlands on Saturday. A loss would not have been that bad, but this was a hiding, and hopefully the union will ask some serious questions, we just can't continue like this and hope for miracles.

 Louis Ludik, Henno Mentz
Cons: Andre Pretorius
Pens: Andre Pretorius(2)

For the Stormers:
