Table topping Hurricanes put their unbeaten record on the line on Friday when they entertain the Stormers from South Africa in Wellington. The Canes made it a perfect 6 from 6 last weekend, when they defeated the Rebels 36-12 at the Westpac Stadium, claiming their second try-scoring bonus point along the way.

With only one of their remaining ten Super Rugby fixtures to be played outside of New Zealand, the Hurricanes are already looking well placed to make a first play-off appearance since 2009, when they were beaten in the semi-finals by the Chiefs. Every other side in the tournament has lost at least two matches during the first seven rounds of competition this season. The Canes have already beaten two South African teams this season, both while on tour to the Republic, the Lions were downed 22-8 in Johannesburg, while the following week saw them beat the Bulls at Loftus 17-13.

The Stormers started the season with four successive wins, but were beaten by the touring Chiefs at Newlands, before beginning their own tour with a 21-39 beating last weekend at the Highlanders. Those successive losses have seen them drop out of the top six in the overall table, are also replaced at the top of the South African Conference by the Sharks.
