The Stormers should tread with caution when they face the Hurricanes in a Super 14 encounter at Newlands Stadium tomorrow at 5.05pm.

This after the Hurricanes began their South African tour on a high note by blasting tailenders the Bulls 50-22 in Pretoria at the weekend.

The New Zealand side will be looking forward to their second successive win on South African soil to strengthen their third spot on the log.

At the same time, the home side will pull out all the stops to beat the Hurricanes to enhance their chance of qualifying for the semifinals.

Coach Rassie Erasmus and his boys had a successful campaign Down Under after registering three wins in their four games.

Their victims were the Reds (34-16), the Chiefs (35-26), the Force (33-16) and they succumbed 14-17 to the Blues from New Zealand.

After a week's recess from their tour, they overcame the Cheetahs with a 34-22 victory in Cape Town.

Meanwhile, the Lions have recalled former captain Earl Rose and Cobus "Varkhond'' Grobler for their game against the Waratahs in Sydney tomorrow.

They replaced Anton van Zyl and Jerry Justin who returned home after picking up injuries during the match against the Crusaders last week.

The rest of the fixtures: Today: Chiefs v Crusaders (Hamilton); Reds v Force (Brisbane).

Tomorrow: Brumbies v Sharks (Canberra); Bulls v Highlanders (Loftus).
