Another poor Sharks performances gave the Reds a great away win on Friday in Durban when they scored three tries to two.
Sharks got off to the worst possible start when the Reds turned over the ball and ran out of their own twenty two to score on the other side.
This gave them a 7-0 lead early on, with the Sharks defence looking suspect early on.
Was a stolen lineout which the Reds collected to find the gap with Hegarty slides through a gap after a couple of phases.
It took not long for the Reds to find another gab in the Sharks backs after all the play again was made by the Sharks.
This gave them a good 14-0 lead.
The Sharks got a bit more ball and moved into the Reds twenty two again to setup a lineout which Van Vuuren was at the end of a good drive from the linout.
This reduce the lead to 14-7 after 26 minutes.
The rest of the half saw both teams makes more mistakes which was frustrated to watch really.
The second half did not add much more in the first 11 minutes than what we saw in the first half.
Just to many mistakes by both sides on attack to do any damage to the scoreboard really.
It was the Reds in the 6o minute that were able to put a few phases together with a few passes that sticked to get over for there third try.
This gave them a 21-7 lead.
The Sharks got there try next with a minute to go to take the score to 21-14 after Dan Du Preez went over the line.
The Sharks had a last opportunity but as throughout the game they could not hold on to the ball to give the Reds a great away win of 21-14
