Sharks prevail


SHARKS supporters would have been pleased with the way their team responded away against the Cheetahs, after last week’s flat performanc­e against the Kings.

The Sharks took the Cheetahs on at their own game and prevailed 38-30 in an entertaini­ng match.

Well-marshalled by young flyhalf Curwin Bosch, the Sharks played with flair and showed a willingnes­s to play an expansive game. Robert du Preez’s men outscored the Cheetahs four tries to three, no mean feat in Bloemfonte­in. And Bosch was cool as a cucumber with the boot, slotting 18 points.

Next weekend is the Lions away in Johannesbu­rg in what promises to be a humdinger between the two form South African teams. Another away win for the Sharks would set up their season nicely.
