Stormers win brings relief as they move off the bottom

6:31 am on 21 April 2014

The Stormers moved off the bottom of the Super Rugby standings with an 18-3 win over the Lions in Cape Town to end a run of five successive defeats.

All the Stormers' points came in the first half when they were down to 14 men with hooker Deon Fourie sent to the sin bin for an off-the-ball shoulder charge.

Tries from Damian de Allende and Nizaam Carr in a five-minute spell brought relief to the under-fire Stormers coaching staff as their team grabbed only a second win in eight games this season.
