Under 21s the pride of the Tank

Michael Horak and AB Zondagh added another big notch to their bedposts this last weekend, with their Sharks under 21 side recording a bonus-point 29-23 win over the Blue Bulls at Kings Park. With the Sharks boys hurting after a last-gasp try denied them a win over these foes at Loftus earlier in the year, Marius Louw scored a late try this week to sew up the victory and also propel the Sharks to third on the tournament log.

Marquit September opened the scoring for the visitors after just 14 minutes, with Sharks winger Neil Maritz pulling his team back to 5-all 10 minutes later. The Bulls asserted further dominance as the half wore on, with big prop Dayan van der Westhuizen barrelling over for their second. Josh Stander made up for two missed conversions with a late penalty to see the visitors lead 13-5 at the break.

Inny-Christian Radebe knocked over a penalty early in the second half to reduce the deficit, before Maritz scored again, this time under the sticks. Radebe’s conversion saw the Sharks now two points ahead, 15-13 with half an hour to go. A further Bulls score made that joy short-lived, but it was the Sharks who finished stronger, with first number 8 Ayron Schramm and then captain Louw scoring tries to secure not only the win, but also the bonus point. A late penalty to the Bulls secured a losing bonus point, but the Sharks’ 6-point lead held firm in the end.

With a game in hand over the second-placed Cheetahs (and a big match against these foes in the final round), the Sharks under 21 side are still in with an outside chance of hosting a semifinal. With wins in the bag against Western Province, the Lions and now the Blue Bulls already this season, this young team appears to be peaking at the right time and will back themselves to go all the way in a year when good news out of Durban is a rare commodity.

Sharks 29 (5). Tries: Ayron Schramm, Marius Louw, Neil Maritz (2). Conversions: Inny-Christian Radebe (3). Penalty: Radebe.
Blue Bulls 23 (13). Tries: Dayan van der Westhuizen, Jsuanre Swanepoel, Marquit September. Conversion: Joshua Stander. Penalties: Stander(2).
