The Sharks under 21 side made life harder than they needed to for themselves in recording a 32-20 bonus-point victory over the EP Kings in Durban.

In a strong firs-half display, it was ace flyhalf Inny-Christian Radebe who pulled the strings, scoring two of his side’s four tries en-route to a 26-8 halftime lead. Fullback Alrin Eksteen opened the scoring via a try in the fifth minute, with Radebe’s twin strike ensuring the Sharks stayed well ahead, despite a penalty to EP flyhalf Matthys Venter. Number 8 Graham Geldenhuys scored the bonus-point try for the Sharks after just half an hour, with Radebe’s conversion sealing a 16-point haul in the half.

The Sharks promptly shut up shop, having secured the points, allowing the Kings to score 12 unanswered points via two tries and a conversion, before Radebe finally troubled the scorers again with a penalty in the 60th minute. A third Kings try in the closing quarter narrowed the gap to just nine points, with Radebe stretching it out to 12 with a second penalty as full-time loomed.

The win takes the Sharks up to fourth on the log, but with plenty of work to do ahead of the log-leading Lions’ visit this weekend. Radebe, after missing the opening two games of the campaign, is already second on the individual points-scoring table, just a point behind the leader. He has already scored 4 tries this season.

Sharks U21 32 (26). Tries: Graham Geldenhuys, Innocent Radebe (2), Alrin Eksteen. Conversions: Innocent Radebe (3). Penalties: Innocent Radebe (2).
EP Kings U21 20 (8). Tries: Anelisa Mteto, Khaya Malotana, Warren Swarts. Conversions: Matthys Venter. Penalty: Matthys Venter.

In the earlier game, Paul Anthony’s under 19 side again tasted defeat, after inspiring some hope against the log-leading Kings in a spirited first-half display.

Namibian flanker Cameron MacNab and left wing Tristan Blewett scored first-half tries, with Tristan Tedder converting both to ensure the home side turned just a point down, 14-15. The Kings, though, scored 19 further points in a one-sided second-half display, including a penalty try. Consolation scores to MacNab and impressive fullback Morne Joubert (neither converted) at least gave the Sharks a bonus point for four tries, but with the final score standing at 24-34, the side remain winless after five games in the competition.

Sharks U19 24 (14). Tries: Cameron MacNab(2), Morne Joubert, Tristan Blewett. Conversions: Tristan Tedder (2).
EP Kings U19 34 (15). Tries: Athi Mayinje, Hayden Tharratt, Lusanda Badiyana, Yamkela Nyalambisa, Penalty Try. Conversions: Michael Brink (2), Jordan Koekemoer. Penalty: Jordan Koekemoer.
