Match Report – Steyn late penalty gives Cheetahs win over Sharks


One of the better matches this week when the Cheetahs stole the win at the end against the Sharks with a penalty by Springbok Frans Steyn in Bloemfontein.

It would be pleasing for Cheetahs fans to see the Cheetahs now having beaten the Stormers and Sharks while they would not take part in the Rainbow Cup coming up against the PRO14 sides.

The Sharks will take a lot of pride from the game having fielded mostly young inexperience players in this match.

At the end 39-38 was enough for the Cheetahs to get their second win in two weeks even if the Sharks outscore them them by six tries to five.

The Cheetahs did the damage early on when they scored 28 points to the 12 of the Sharks in the first half, leaving the Sharks to play catchup rugby in the second half.

It was nice to see both team coming to the game wanting to play some rugby and we witness some brilliant tries from both side on the night.

The second half would also be something they will take away from this game having outscore the Cheetahs and came back to almost win the game at the end.

It was only some silly penalties that loss them the game at the end.
