Stormers down Kings 52-24

Jul 16, 2016 - 5:49 PM Centre Huw Jones scored a franchise record four tries and wing Leolin Zas a hat-trick against the Southern Kings as the Stormers finished the regular season on a 52-24 high note ahead of next weekend's home quarter-final against New Zealand's Chiefs.

Jones, capped by Scotland last month but getting a rare start in Super Rugby, went over after just 43 seconds at Newlands to set the tone for the one-sided coastal derby in which the Stormers, resting several regulars, outscored the Kings 8-3 in tries.

Replacement flyhalf Brandon Thomson scored the home side's other try while Malcolm Jaer and Wandile Mjekevu got consolation efforts for the Kings, whose centre Stefan Watermeyer scored after the final hooter in his last run as a player. He also converted his own try.

The Stormers top the Africa 1 Conference while the Kings ended their 15-match program with just two wins and 13 losses.
