London Irish's Jebb Sinclair marked his loan debut for Stormers by helping the Super 15 team to a 16-14 win over their South African rivals Cheetahs.
Sinclair came on as a first-half replacement for the Cape Town club after being flown in last week as injury cover,
The player he replaced, Nizaam Carr, has now been ruled out for the rest of the season with a ruptured cruciate knee ligament.
And with Stormers' loose-forward injury problems mounting, Sinclair is now in line for a start in Saturday's home game against the Waratahs.
Their coach Allister Coetzee said: "Sinclair does play towards the ball as a No 8, which is a good sign.
"He is also a good ball-carrier so I think he will be the No 8 next week because we have got none.”
