New­lands:

Wings Jaco Van Wyk and Le­olin Zas scored firsthalf tries as South Africa’s Storm­ers bat­tled to a scrappy 40-22 Su­per Rugby vic­tory over Reds at New­lands yes­ter­day morn­ing. Half­back Nic Groom added a third score in the sec­ond half, but the vis­i­tors were in the game un­til the fi­nal 15 min­utes as they bagged tries through flanker Liam Gill, full­back Karmichael Hunt and Fi­jian-born winger Eto Nab­uli. Three penal­ties from re­place­ment first-five Bran­don Thom­son, on his Su­per Rugby de­but, and a late try from prop Vin­cent Koch sealed the game for the hosts, how­ever, and en­sured the Reds would have only one vic­tory af­ter nine rounds of the sea­son.
