Further heartbreak in Kokstad

There was no joy for Sharks fans in any competition this weekend, with the Sharks XV going down badly to Free State in Saturday’s Vodacom Cup fixture in Kokstad.

Just like their senior counterparts, these Sharks lost due to a flurry of second-half tries, with Free State number 8 Vince Jobo scoring twice in 6 minutes to undo all the good work their hosts had put in to get in front.

Coenie van Wyk, the former Pumas and Lions Super Rugby player who moved to the cheetahs this year, scored the opener, but that was quickly matched by a try to Dan du Preez. Inny Radebe missed the conversion, but otherwise matched van Wyk’s two penalties and the Sharks XV trailed by just two at the break. Flanker Khaya Majola scored ten minutes into the second half to finally hand his side the lead, before Jobo’s brace no long after eclipsed any hope of a win.

Scrumhalf Shaun Venter rubbed salt into the wounds with the bonus-point score just before half time, consigning the Sharks XV to a second successive loss and a lowly sixth-spot on the South section log, well out of the play-off race after just three rounds.

Sharks XV 18 (11): Tries: Daniel Du Preez, Khaya Majola. Conversion: Innocent Radebe. Penalties: Radebe (2)
Free State XV 35 (13): Tries: Vincent Jobo (2), Coenie van Wyk, Shaun Venter. Conversions: Van Wyk (3). Penalties: Van Wyk (3).
