Sharks starts Currie Cup with bonus point win


The Sharks started the Currie Cup with a bonus point win over the Pumas on Friday beating them 45-10.

A little bit of rain before the game made it just that little bit more difficult for the teams as they start the new Currie Cup Season.

It was the Sharks that drew first blood after their first time behind the line was disallowed by the TMO. It was Ward to scored his side first try of the match and a 7-0 lead after Bosch converted the try.

The Sharks quickly got over for their second when Sanele Nohamba broke free from a tackle and got over under the sticks. Bosch converted again which took the Sharks lead to 14-0.

The Pumas under pressure going backwards and while trying to play out of their own goal line Jeremy Ward made tackle dislodge the ball and he quickly dived on it for his second of the match.

The Sharks in total control kept the scoreboard ticking over with two more tries from Kerron van Vuuren and Dylan Richardson.

The Pumas only managed one penalty in the first half as the teams went into the break with the Sharks leading 31-3

With the Pumas scoring their first try in the second half through Phumzile Maqondwana, Nkosi brilliance straight from the kickoff saw another try for the Sharks.

With the Sharks leading 39-10, we saw the Pumas putting some pressure on the Sharks but with poor handling and decision making on attack spilled a great opportunity to get over the line.

In fact it was Nkosi that scored his second try after another mistake from the Pumas to take their lead to 45-10.

The Sharks at the end was just to good for the Pumas on the night.
