What they had to say: Sharks vs Lions, Round 3

Hi Sharks fans. What a pity about the late tries to the Lions, but a much better effort from the Sharks with more enterprising backline play. Not the complete article yet, but on an upward trend although, judging from the comments on twitter below, the fans are getting impatient.

Media:

“The Sharks had led 16-10 late in the second half, but the Lions came back roaring in the final 15 minutes to take the game away from the struggling Durbanites.” – news24.com

“It was one-way traffic in the final 15 minutes as the Lions took the game by the scruff of the neck. Ross Cronje made a sniping run into the Sharks’ 22 before he handed the ball to Albertus Smith, who stood strong in a tackle and managed to offload to Nicolaas Hanekom – who grabbed the score for the visitors.” – rugby365.com

“After three rounds of the Currie Cup, the Sharks have lost two out of three but possibly more important than the results at this stage is the question of whether the rebuilding Durban team are on an upward curve. The score-line would suggest not but for most of this match there was sufficient evidence to indicate the Sharks will get exponentially better the more they play, but they know they can’t use the “rebuilding” tag for much longer… There had been so much effort and resolve from the Sharks, especially in the first half when they outplayed a Lions side tipped for the title, but effort can only get you so far and the Joburgers simply rolled with the punches and then showed their pedigree when it mattered, helped to no small degree by implosions in the Sharks’ decision-making.” – iol.co.za

“It was the Lions’ first win in Durban, at Vodacom Super Rugby or Currie Cup level, since 2007, and helped maintain their unbeaten start to this year’s Currie Cup. For the Sharks, it was a second defeat in three matches.” – sarugbymag.co.za

“The Xerox Golden Lions held off a determined challenge from the Cell C Sharks on their way to a 31-16 (halftime 7-6) win in a scrappy Absa Currie Cup Premier Division match at Growthpoint Kings Park in Durban on Saturday.” – supersport.com

Twitter:

“#CurrieCup2015 #sharksvlions ref advantage play terrible. Should send him back to ref school”

“It’s going to be a long and tough Currie Cup for the @sharksrugby #ssrugby”

“What a year for the Sharks… Waking up to another defeat, not lekker!! #CurrieCup #SharksRugby”

“We lost #sharksrugby”
