  • Cheetahs 22 Sharks 29

    Full time
  • The Sharks are in possession inside their half. They set up several phases and when the siren sounds Cobus Reinach boots the ball into touch. The visitors are victorious but the result could so easily have gone to the visitors who fought back well and almost clinched a surprise win. Both sides deserve credit though for making this the entertaining spectacle that it was but in the end the Sharks' first half effort secured them this win.

  • Daniller takes Goosen's kick off and sets off towards the Sharks' try-line! Only a brave tackle from Bosman prevents a certain try!

  • PENALTY, SHARKS, LAMBIE! 22-29. Lambie adds the extra three points after Prinsloo infringes at a ruck.

  • The Sharks attack close to the hosts' try-line and Jordaan and Meyer Bosman both go close to scoring but are stopped by desperate tackles.

  • Sharks replacement loose forward Pieter-Steph du Toit is put into space down the touchline and races away before diving in what he thinks is a try. He is called back, however, after he puts a foot into touch.

  • The Cheetahs attack out wide with their backs before bringing it back to their forwards where Coenie Oosthuizen does well when he bumps off an attempted tackle by Jean Deysel.

  • PENALTY, CHEETAHS, GOOSEN! 22-26. Goosen narrows the gap to four points after the Sharks infringe at a ruck close to their try-line.

  • The Cheetahs are well and truly back in this game! From a tap penalty, Boom Prinslo kicks ahead and Goosen gives chase. Odwa Ndungane gets to the ball first but is tackled into touch, close to his try-line, by Goosen.

  • CONVERSION, CHEETAHS, GOOSEN! 19-26. Goosen steps up and slots a difficult effort from up against the touchline!

  • TRY, CHEETAHS, SADIE! 17-26. Johann Sadie takes a pass from Goosen and beats Tendai Mtawarira before crossing over in the left-hand corner!

  • CONVERSION, CHEETAHS, GOOSEN! 12-26. Goosen succeeds with his first kick of the match which give his team some hope of getting something from this game.

  • TRY, CHEETAHS, LABUSCHAGNE! 10-26. The Cheetahs attack out wide and Van der Walt takes on the Cheetahs defence before offloading to Lappies Labuschagne who gets in for his first ever Super Rugby try!

  • The Cheetahs launch a counter-attack from inside their 22. Rhule, Daniller, Adriaan Strauss and Sarel Pretorius are all prominent. The move comes to nothing though when Rhule throws a pass which JP Pietersen intercepts before kicking upfield.

  • Hennie Daniller takes some pressure off his team with a 50-metre kick which sails into touch inside the Sharks' 22.

  • The Cheetahs are blown up for an early engagement at a scrum. The Sharks are dominating this department and call for another set-piece.

  • PENALTY, SHARKS, LAMBIE! 5-26. Another three poins from the Sharks fly-half's boot after Coenie Oosthuizen, who is on for Lourens Adriaanse is penalised for a scrum infringement.

  • CONVERSION, SHARKS, LAMBIE! 5-23. Lambie makes no mistake from the kicking tee to put more daylight between his side and the hosts.

  • TRY, SHARKS, COETZEE! 5-21. The Sharks launch a drive off a line-out close to the Cheetahs try-line and when Jacques Botes is stopped just short Marcell Coetzee dives over after scooping up the ball off the ground.

  • Goosen gets a chance to narrow the gap, after the Sharks are penalised for being offside. His effort is just off target, however.
