The Sharks opened their Currie Cup with a positive win over the Blue Bulls in Durban and earned a bonus point in the process as well.

With four tries to one the Sharks did not just outplayed the Blue Bulls but outscore them as well.

Tries from Juan Schoeman, Kobus van Wyk, Aphelele Fassi and Curwin Bosch proved too much for the visitors whos only score  came from Jesse Kriel’s.

The experience from some Springboks in the Sharks side showed throughout the match as they jus had to much on attack for the Blue Bulls.

Despite having more opportunities to make the scoreline more flattering, the Sharks were unable to extend their lead as no further points were scored in the last quarter of an hour.

The Blue Bulls had enough chances throughout the match but handling specially on attack was poor.

The Sharks were great in putting the ball behind the Blue Bulls and force them into mistakes.

The skillset from the Sharks were also great at times and they showed that they will be a threat for this year cup.
