    Sunwolves v Cell C Sharks (Result)




    The Sharks were just to good for the poor Sunwolves on Saturday when they beat them 45-10 earning a bonus point win.

    With only two Japanese players in the Sunwolves, the team struggled to get going although they did get a good enough start.

    The Sharks dominated all aspects of the match and although they struggle in the first half they just showed their class.

    Am was brilliant for the Sharks creating space and distributing the ball well throughout the game.

    Daniel Du Preez were the star in the pack with Akker van der Merwe.

    The Sharks ran in six tries against the one from the Sunwolves. It was a great performance from the Sharks pack 3 of those tries.

    The Sunwolves holding on for the first twenty to thirty minutes but were just not good enough for the Sharks side.

    Shane Gates shocked the Sharks early on with a brilliant try after they started out of their own twenty two but that was about the only highlight for the host.

    The Sunwolves gave away 16 penalties in the match which you just can not do against a quality side.

    The Sunwolves had enough ball but struggle to keep hold of it at crucial times in the match.
