Great day for juniors in Potch

It was mission accomplished for the Sharks junior sides in Potchefstroom on Saturday, with the under 21 side picking up the bonus point win they needed in order to keep pressure on the second-placed Cheetahs heading into the final round. Perhaps more significantly, though, the under 19 side recorded their first win of what has been a very long campaign so far.

Paul Anthony’s side started the day off with a hard-fought 23-14 win, thanks in no small part to a great goal-kicking performance from flyhalf Tristan Tedder in the second half. Locked up at 14-all at half time (the Sharks’ tries scored by centre Wayno Visagie and flank Ulric Sellar), it fell to Tedder to secure the points, which he did with three unanswered second-half penalties.

Scorers:
Leopards 14 (14). Tries: Dieter Leicher, Edward Haas. Conversions: Barend Janse van Rensburg (2).
Sharks 23 (14). Tries: Alwayno Visagie, Ulric Sellar. Conversions: Visagie, Tristan Tedder. Penalties: Tedder (3).

Michael Horak and AB Zondagh kept their peaking team on the right track, with a decent 45-12 victory, including 7 tries, just the right medicine ahead of a big match in Bloemfontein next week. Ayron Schramm scored for the second time in two weeks to hand his side a slender 5-0 lead at half time, but the Sharks capitalised on a Leaopard yellow card early in the second half to score twice more, via prop Barend Potgieter and flanker Graham Geldenhuys. The flood gates opened and four further tries were scored, to two by the hosts. Inny Radebe was the lone backlike points scorer, with a try and five conversions, while lock Hyron Andrews and replacement forwards Sias Koen and Wian Vosloo added the other scores.

The Sharks are now four points behind the Cheetahs and will need a big win this weekend to leapfrog the men in orange and secure a home semi-final. Whatever happens in that game, it appears certain that the Sharks and Cheetahs will face off in that match, with only the venue yet to be decided.

Scorers:
Leopards 12 (0). Tries: Rudolph van Deventer (2). Conversion: Gene Willemse.
Sharks: 45 (5). Tries: Ayron Schramm, Barend Potgieter, Graham Geldenhuys, Hyron Andrews, Inny-Christian Radebe, Sias Koen, Wian Vosloo. Conversions: Radebe (5).
