Mr BMT sneaks another win for Sharks XV

It’s a real pity that the majority of Sharks fans won’t get to see much Vodacom Cup rugby this season, because my feeling is that we’re missing the emergence of a future superstar.

On a night where not much went right for the Sharks XV down in George, it was phenomenal young flyhalf Fred Zeilinga who, once again, kept a cool head and kicked the points needed to secure his side the unlikeliest of wins. Zeilinga nailed four penalties and two conversions to extend his own lead at the top of the Vodacom Cup points scoring table, in the process leading his side to a 26-22 win over SWD.

The Sharks XV remain one of only two unbeaten sides in the competition, but are only two points clear of the Pampas XV at the top of the South Section log; a testament to exactly how reliant they’ve been on Zeilinga and his boot thus far, as tries have been somewhat hard to come by.

The Sharks scored a try via Francois Kleinhans to take a slender 13-12 lead at half time, but went behind shortly afterwards as Mzo Dyanti struck back for the hosts. Zeilinga’s boot kept them close, before replacement wing Sean Robinson scythed through for the winner 9 minutes from time.

SCORERS
South Western Districts (22) – Try: Mzo Dyanti; Conversion: Jeff Taljard; Penalties: Jeff Taljard (5)
Sharks XV (26) – Tries: Francois Kleinhans, Sean Robinson; Conversions: Fred Zeilinga (2); Penalties: Fred Zeilinga (4)
