The Pumas and Stormers will both be looking for back-to-back wins in Super Rugby Unlocked when they face off at the Mbombela Stadium on Friday evening. With only one match under their belt the Stormers will certainly still be rusty, which could bring the Pumas into the match.

Pumas Form


The Pumas were widely expected to finish bottom of the Super Rugby Unlocked table prior to the start of the tournament based on their lack of quality. That may still turn out to be true but the Pumas have had an impressive start.

On the opening weekend the Pumas were torn apart in the first half by the Cheetahs but fought back well in the second stanza to lose 53-31 in Bloemfontein.

The Pumas were again away from home in their second match, this time against a very competitive Griquas side. In a stellar performance the Pumas upset the odds with a last minute try to win 27-21 in Kimberley.

Pumas News


The Pumas have no reported injuries as yet but we will know more once the teams are selected on Wednesday evening.

Stormers Form


The Stormers had a bye in the opening week of Super Rugby Unlocked and then put in an understandably rusty performance in week two.

Despite not being anywhere near their best, the Stormers walked away with a 23-17 home win over the Lions. An way trip to the Pumas is never as simple as it may look so the Stormers will have to improve to get the result they want this weekend.

Stormers News


Both wings in Sergeal Petersen and Seabelo Senatla will miss the Pumas match through injury.
