Match Report – Sharks win a dull affair in Durban


Another great performance from Curwin Bosch saw the Sharks come back to beat the Cheetahs on Friday in Durban 19-13.

It was not one of those games that anybody will talk too much about as both teams did not lived up to expectations.

It was a comedy of errors throughout the match which made this one of those games which was not easy to watch. For this one it was actually a good thing there was no crowd having to pay for this kind of rugby.

Both teams tried to play an expansive game but the emphasis was on tried and that is where it stopped.

Bosch got two penalties over in the first half.

The Sharks came out better in the second half but the Cheetahs defence was up for it. Although the Sharks kept on playing a scrappy game they did get some reward when Ward got over to score.

The try was cancelled after they found Libbok interfering with a Cheetahs player in the lead-up.

Bosch and Schoeman kept the scoreboard ticking over with some penalties.

It was the Cheetahs that scored next with William Small-Smith which gave the visitors the lead.

It was then the Bosch show as he was instrumental in Tambwe try and minutes later Bosch kicked a penalty to secure the win which saw them move above the Cheetahs on the log.


Sharks: Try: Madosh Tambe. Conversion: Curwin Bosch. Penalties: Bosch (4).
Cheetahs: Try: William Small-Smith. Conversion: Tian Schoeman. Penalties: Schoeman (2).
