The Cheetahs struck a crucial pre-season blow when they edged the Stormers 22-14 in their Super Rugby warm-up match at Newlands on Saturday.
In what was a stop-start encounter the teams score one try each - both coming after the break, with the Cheetahs having held a 9-6 lead at half-time.
Neither side managed to put too many phases together in a game that produced a lot of kicking.
The Cheetahs played a territorial game and the Stormers struggled to find a way through their defensive lines.
