What a horrible feeling. We didn’t win, but it certainly feels like we lost. It’s almost a relief that the season has finally come to an end.

Let’s see what the media had to say about the game.

Media:

“The Free State Cheetahs booked their spot in the semi-finals of this year’s Absa Currie Cup after their final group stage match against the Sharks ended in a thrilling draw in Bloemfontein on Saturday. The final score read 34-all after the home side led 17-13 at half-time.” – news24.com

“The Toyota Cheetahs scored two converted tries in the last five minutes to snatch a 34-34 draw (halftime 17-13) against the Cell C Sharks in Bloemfontein on Saturday, sealing their place in the playoffs of the Absa Currie Cup premier division. They looked down and out when trailing 20-34 and the Sharks seemingly in complete control. They, too, had produced their own turnaround, fighting back through the tight-loose to control the game and surge to a 14-point lead 25 minutes into the second half.” – supersport.com

“The Free State Cheetahs managed to fight their way to a 34-34 draw with the Sharks to advance to the Currie Cup semifinal against the Golden Lions next weekend. The Cheetahs were 20-34 down with eight minutes to play before they decided to show their knock-out aspirations.” – rugby365.com

“The Sharks looked to have the game won – and a place in the knockout stage secure – when they took a 14-point lead with just 10 minutes left to play. They then fell asleep and allowed the Cheetahs to complete an incredible comeback. A breakout try to Ryno Benjamin and then another from replacement Gerhard Olivier, with Niel Marais knocking over the conversions, enabled the Cheetahs to clinch a draw that was good enough to secure their semi-final spot. With that hard-fought result, the Cheetahs have won a date with the Lions next weekend, while after an up-and-down season, the woeful Sharks will be left wondering what could have been after experiencing the ignominy of missing out on a knockout place.” – sarugbymag.co.za

Twitter:

“Can’t believe the debacle which was the the #SharksvsCheetahs game. No coach can take the blame for that collapse. You can’t coach ‘heart’.”

“Go Sharks!!! Semi final place at stake! @TheSharksZA #Sharks #sharksvscheetahs”

“Mark Keohane ?@mark_keohane 20h20 hours ago: What’s view of @TheSharksZA former players & fans on appointment of Gary Gold or is 2016 an aberration? #sharksrugby”

“Perhaps @TheSharksZA will listen if season ticket & suite holders refuse annual renewals #SeasonOfShame #SharksRugby”

“@CPK3 grabbed defeat from the jaws of victory!!! #Sharksrugby #goldout”

“Pathetic from the Sharks. Well that rounds up a shocking season. Goodbye Gould. #sharksrugby #CurrieCup”
