Beauden Barrett seals Hurricanes victory over Stormers

Winger Wes Goosen scored two second-half tries and Beauden Barrett contributed 14 points as the Hurricanes rallied to beat the Stormers 34-28 in Super Rugby.

Saturday’s match presented a stark contrast in styles between the Hurricanes, who lacked a reliable set piece and tried to play the game at pace, and the Stormers, who sought to slow play and control possession through their powerful forward pack.

The Hurricanes finally emerged on top, snatching the lead with a try to Barrett 10 minutes from full-time and outscoring the Stormers by five tries to three.

The Stormers turned repeatedly to their rolling maul which brought them tries but deserted them in the final minutes of the match when they had territory and repeated opportunities to score.
