Desperate Sharks fall short again

The Highlanders have beaten the Sharks by 25 points to 22 in a thrilling game in Dunedin, in the process all-but ending the Durbanites’ chances of making the knock-outs in this year’s competition.

The Sharks had chances aplenty to win this game, make no mistake, but costly errors at big moments ensured that they never got far ahead, despite good first half tries by Lwazi Mvovo and Meyer Bosman.

Leading by 15 points to 7 at the break, the chances of an away win looked reasonable; however, the Sharks fell asleep for the opening period of the second half, as we’ve seen them do, and conceded 20 unanswered points to end up with their backs against the wall once again. Trailing by 15 points to 25, a thrilling passage of play saw Bosman get over for his second, but the Sharks, despite spending the last 5 minutes of the game on attack and pushing hard, failed to score the try that would have turned one log point into the five they so desperately needed.

To add injury to insult, Frans Steyn and Tera Mtembu both had to leave the field with what look like serious injuries to ankle and shoulder respectively.

Scores:
Highlanders (25): Tries Sean Treeby, Aaron Smith, Colin Slade. Conversions Slade (2). Penalties Slade (2).
Sharks (22): Tries Meyer Bosman (2), Lwazi Mvovo. Conversions Pat Lambie (2). Penalty Lambie
