The Sharks ended their tour on with a win when they scored a try after the hooter through Am after some magic from Bosch when they beat the Brumbies 27-22.

The Brumbies started the match with a great try within 2 min of the match and took an early lead of 5-0 over the Sharks.

The Sharks got a penalty back to get on the board with the Brumbies leading 5-3. The Brumbies almost scored their second try but a small knock on dissalowed the try and gave the Sharks the oprtunity to get out of their twenty two.

The Brumbies dominated much of the territory due to Sharks mistakes and forced a drive close to the Sharks line to score their second try of the match.

With more mistakes from Sharks and giving away penalties the Brumbies stayed in Sharks half to forced another penalty and stretch their lead to 15-3 after 31 min.

The Sharks played some rugby in Brumbies half and from an attacking lineout the Beast got over for the Sharks first try. Lambie also slotted over a penalty to get the score to 15-13 after 37 min for the Brumbies.

The two teams went into the break with exactly that score.

The Sharks took the lead for the first time of the match early in the second half with a penalty from Lambie to make it 16-15.

The Sharks kept the pressure on the Brumbies by keeping the play tight and holding on to the ball. A yellow card gave the Sharks the advantage in the 50th minute but they manage to mess up two opertunities from n attacking lineout.

The game did not go anywhere really and the Sharks missed two easy penalties but eventually Lambie kicked one over to take the lead to 19-15 after 59 minutes.

Lambie got another penalty and stretch the lead for the Sharks to 22-15.

The Brumbies had not allot of time in the Sharks half but when they go their they scored their thrid try through quick hands to make get even on 22 all after 70 min.

It all looked like they were playing for a draw until some magic from Bosch after the hooter to score a match winning try for the Sharks.

Allot to work for Sharks but they will take that win and get back to the Republic.

  1. Hopefully this puts the Sharks’ season back on track, good to win against the Brumbies in Canberra.

    Does make me wonder though, who is the form team for the Ausies this year, early days I know, but they have all lost a game in the first two rounds.

  2. @Craven:

    Well you’d think on paper it would be the Brumbies and then Tahs… but all things have pointed to the Force so far lol!
