Stormers coach Allister Coetzee expected a dog-fight against the Kings and that is exactly what they got in Port Elizabeth on Saturday.

The visitors were forced to work hard for their victory, in a match dominated by the watertight defensive systems of both teams.

"That was our fourth win on the trot and I am happy with our victory and I always knew it would be hard work at Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium," Coetzee said.

"When I arrived here I thought it was Newlands with all our supporters out there. I knew it would be a dog-fight in PE because the Kings had targeted this game to get their first South African derby win."

The Kings pushed the Stormers hard and trailed only 14-12 with 10 minutes remaining before a penalty by Elton Jantjies and a converted try by skipper Deon Fourie sealed the win for the Stormers.

"I warned during the week that we could just not rock up here and take a win and I knew it would be hard work against the Kings," Coetzee said.

Fourie, who led from the front and scored the only two tries of the match, said there had been a great vibe in the stadium.

"In South African derbies you do not leave anything out on the field but we are all still friends off the field," Fourie said when asked about the niggle which crept into the game and threatened to escalate out of control at times.
