The Stormers will take on the touring Blues back at the Newlands in Cape Town after a month of road games in Round 5 Super Rugby. Join The Roar for live scores from March 18 12:05am (AEDT).
Both teams will be hungry in desperate for a win after having poor starts to the season and are near the bottom of their respective conferences.
Whichever team can come out victorious will look to push up the standings whilst the loser will be left behind near the bottom of the Super Rugby standings.
Back at the Newlands the Stormers will be hoping to stop a three-game losing streak and for them it starts with defence.
Slow starts and lacklustre defence have resulted with heavy points scored against them in the past few weeks with teams going over 30 points on each occasion.
This also isn’t helped by the fact the Stormers haven’t scored over 30 points themselves this season.
The Blues on the opposite end need to attack from the onset and put the Stormers on the back foot and put their defence under the pump.
Their two attacking weapons who are in amazing form this season Bryn Gatland at flyhalf and No.8 Akira Ioane who is one of the competitions leading try scorers this season need to lead from the front if the Blues want to come away with the victory.
Both teams are struggling and will be desperate for the win but even with the Stormers back at home I see the Blues coming away with the win just due to the fact they have more attacking firepower and the Stormers have already been struggling defensively this season.
