Bosch at his best as Sharks pun­ish Bulls

Weekend Argus (Sunday Edition) - - SPORT - MIKE GREEN­AWAY

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.
