Sharks under 21 earn semi-final

Sean Everitt’s Sharks under 21 side were held to a 26-all draw by their Lions counterparts on Saturday, courtesy of a late try by the visitors. The two points earned nevertheless saw the baby Sharks qualify for the Under 21 competition semi-finals in third place, thus setting up a knock-out match against second-placed Western Province.

Gouws Prinsloo ws again in fine form for the Sharks, weighing in with a conversion and three penalties on the day, while tries were scored by scrumhalf Cobus Reinach, wing Jaco van Tonder and inside centre Heimar Williams. The team will fancy their chances against Province, having beaten the same opposition 23-17 in Durban just a few weeks ago. That said, though, they took a 32-16 against Province in Cape Town earlier in the season, so the match should be evenly poised.

Earlier on Saturday, Ryan Strudwick’s Sharks under 19s ended the season on a low note, being beaten 23-22 by the Lions, although the team will take much heart from the defeat, given that the score in the first encounter in Johannesburg was an embarrassing 59-20. Nevertheless, the loss condemns the Sharks under 19s to fifth place, out of the semi-final reckoning.

The under 21 semi-final takes place at Florida Park in Ravensmead, kicking off at 18h00 on Friday night and we’d like to urge all Cape-based Sharks supporters to get out and cheer the team on. The second semi-final sees the Lions travel to Loftus to take on the Blue Bulls, also on Friday evening.
