Stormers v Sharks RECAP | URC
READERS’ FORUM: Welcome to our live coverage of the United Rugby Championship Round 15 match between the Stormers and Sharks at Cape Town Stadium.
The Stormers, who are currently in second place on the table with 54 points, will be desperate to make the most of their home-ground advantage to stay ahead of the chasing pack – especially with the third-placed Ulster trailing them by only five points – for a possible home semifinal later in the competition.
Cape Town Stadium has become somewhat of a fortress for the Stormers, who have won 14 straight matches at the venue in Green Point since their defeat in Cape Town against the ions in December 2021 – their first URC clash at the stadium.
They will, however, be bracing themselves for a fierce contest against the seventh-placed Sharks, who will be wary of the fact that a defeat could place their spot in the top eight in jeopardy in the next few weeks.
