Sharks secure top spot

There was little drama as the Sharks ran out comfortable 42-3 victors over Griquas at Kings Park tonight, making sure of top spot on the log in the process.

It was the halfback combination of Cobus Reinach and Pat Lambie that really shone for the Sharks in the first half, with the forwards also doing their bit to secure quick ball, despite pressure from visitors in the set pieces. Reinach scored the first try after some superb interplay with Odwa Ndungane, who unfortunately went off injured shortly afterwards. A second try went to Louis Ludik shortly afterwards, with Ndungane’s replacement, Lwazi Mvovo, scoring a third just before half time.

With Pat Lambie in fine form with the boot, the Sharks turned 22-3 up and that lead was further stretched by 6 through two good penalties from the flyhalf’s boot. With Griquas by that stage well-beaten and lacking any ideas of their own on attack, the Sharks gave their replacements a proper run. Loose forward Tera Mtembu, a late addition to the match 22 after Jacques Botes cried off injured, scored the bonus point try and was again instrumental in the build up to the fifth. which Charl McLeod scored after great interplay between forwards and backs.

The Sharks will watch tomorrow’ games with interest, in order to work out who their semi-final opponents will be at Kings Park next Saturday.

Scores:
Sharks (42): Tries by Cobus Reinach, Louis Ludik, Lwazi Mvovo, Lubabalo Mtembu and Charl McLeod. Conversions by Pat Lambie (4). Penalties by Lambie (3).
Griquas (3): Penalty by Francois Brümmer.
