Sharks lose again

The Bulls have prevailed 17-10 at Kings Park, courtesy of three second-half penalties to Handre Pollard to which the Sharks had no answer.

The visitors dominated territory and possession for the bulk of the game, with their strong work at the collision point – aided and abetted by referee Jaco Peyper in some instances – proving decisive in stifling Sharks momentum. Had the Bulls not made numerous errors on attack (or the Sharks defended so well), things may have been nowhere near as evenly matched as they were after half an hour, with the teams locked at 3-all.

A defensive mix-up on the blindside of a scrum, though, saw the Bulls streak through and score a cracking try just before half time, with Rudy Paige and Francois Hougaard passing the ball back and forth several times before the latter scored.

The Sharks struck back with about their only good passage of play just after half time, as a decent bit of interplay between forwards and backs around the fringes saw Cobus Reinach free Marcell Coetzee up in space. Fred Zeilinga’s conversion say the hosts edge ahead 10-8, before Pollard struck with the first of the three penalties that would seal the result.

Sharks (10): Try Marcell Coetzee. Conversion Fred Zeilinga. Penalty Zeilinga
Bulls (17): Try Francois Hougaard. Penalties Handre Pollard (4).
