The Sharks under 21 side held out for a famous victory over their table-topping Lions counterparts at Ellis Park on Friday afternoon, a truly astounding, if unexpected result, given the way their season has gone so far.

The Sharks laid the platform for their 31-20 victory with a strong first-half showing, going ahead in the 15th minute via a try to left wing Alrin Eksteen. Bendan Cope converted for a 7-0 advantage, which was reduced to 7-3 by Lions flyhalf Brandan Hewitt some minutes later. Cope struck again with a penalty in the 25th minutes, before an unconverted Lions try to Damien Engledoe narrowed the gap to 10-8. Flank Liam O’Connell struck next for the visitors, but his 7-pointer was immediately cancelled out by a try to Lions winger Selom Gavor.

Cope struck a second penalty just before the half-time whistle to ensure a handy 5-point buffer, with the Sharks leading 20-15.

That leas was son hauled in, but not overtaken, as Gavor scored again (and Hewitt again failed with the conversion). At 20-all and still half an hour to play, it was anybody’s game, but the young Sharks, who are unfortunately already out of the running for the knock outs, finished the stronger side, as two Cope penalties sandwiched a try by fullback Alcino Izaacs.

Golden Lions (20). Tries: Damien Engledoe, Selom Gavor (2). Conversion: Brandan Hewitt. Penalty: Hewitt.
Sharks (31). Tries: Alcino Izaacs, Alrin Eksteen, Liam O’Connell. Conversions: Brendan Cope (2). Penalties: Cope (4).
