Recovering Sharks take on injured Bulls

Sharks VS Bulls SharksEven the allure of free tickets could not draw the Sharks faithful to Kingspark last Saturday. Although, one gets the feeling that it had a lot more to do with the tsunami that unleashed itself on Durban than the current state of Sharks rugby. The Sharks did well to pull 5 points out of […]

Last weeks losers seek redemption

Sharks VS Lions  SharksThe Sharks started 2015 without even so much as missing a beat in terms of their form which saw them crash stupendously out of the 2014 SR season as well as the local but less glamorous bun fight, the 2014 Currie Cup.

When the Bulls scored the opening try […]

On paper that is. The Cheetahs unsettled the home side early on and ran them ragged. The visitors won 35-29, picking up a bonus point win […]
