Andre Taylor scored a try for the Stormers, yet they fell to defeat

Both teams scored two tries apiece but Hurricanes fly-half Beauden Barrett missed four of his six shots at goal in the breezy conditions, while Stormers fullback Joe Pietersen successfully kicked three of his five and that in the end proved to be the difference in the tightly-contested battle.

Debutant Proctor and Taylor scored either side of the break for the home side, while Michael Rhodes and Gio Aplon did likewise for the Stormers in a match where chances were at a premium.
