Bosch at his best as Sharks punish Bulls
received a Beaudon Barrett-style kick-pass to score untouched. We can only hope we one day see a replica of that try with both those players in the green and gold.
The Sharks scored a second try in the first half when veteran flanker Keegan Daniel slithered over and the Bulls would have been happy to have been only 12-5 down at halftime given that their forwards were getting a hammering.
In the second half Bosch would add a penalty and a magnificent drop goal through the heavy rain to complete the scoring — in the second half the rain had intensified and positive rugby was impossible, and the game became more of a wrestling match, where muscular Sharks players such as Dan du Preez, Jacques Vermeulen and Botha were excellent.
Bosch’s out-of-hand kicking was immaculate, despite the conditions, and he repeatedly drove the Bulls back into their half with precision kicking.
The Sharks play the Lions on Friday night in Durban and then finish against Western Province also at Kings Park) before the semi-finals.
