PRETORIA, South Africa (AP) -- A perfect kicking display by young flyhalf Handre Pollard helped the Bulls to see off a spirited showing from an injury-hit Stormers side 28-12 in Super Rugby on Saturday.

With a long wounded list forcing the Stormers to make 12 changes to their team from last week's win over the Highlanders, few gave them a chance in South Africa's famous north-south derby.

However, the visitors sprung to a 12-0 lead with two early tries before Pollard hauled them back by halftime with a succession of penalties and a dropped goal.

The 20-year-old then put the Bulls ahead before Akona Ndungane's try sealed the points to put them within touching distance of the playoff spots.
