  • FULL TIME - The final whistle sounds in Durban!  The Sharks remain in the hunt for top spot in the South African conference with a hard fought 28-24 victory over the Chiefs.  The Sharks controlled possession and territory for the majority of the match but could never quite shake off the Chiefs who fought hard right until the last play when they scored a try to secure a bonus point.

  • Conversion
    CONVERSION! Chiefs (Marty McKenzie) 28-24 Sharks
    80'+3''
  • The Chiefs will come away with a bonus point!  The space opens up down the left hand side for Solomona Alaimalo and the explosive winger bursts away evading the cover defence on his way to the corner.
    80'+2''
  • Try
    TRY! Chiefs (Solomona Alaimalo) 28-22 Sharks
    80'+2''
  • The final hooter sounds with the Chiefs in possession - the visitors still have a chance to salvage a bonus point with the final play of the match.
    80'''
  • The Sharks pinch the Chiefs' line out ball and all the hosts need to do now is to hang onto possession here with the final whistle just over a minute away.
    79''
  • The Chiefs attacking surge stalls after an attempted flick on to Samisoni Taukei’aho doesn't go to hand - it's the Sharks with the scrum feed just inside their 22m line.
    77''
  • Some sloppy play from the Chiefs however they are given a reprieve with Lwazi Mvovo penalised for a high tackle on Luteru Laulala.
    74''
  • An opportunity here for the Chiefs who have the scrum feed on the Sharks' 10m line - the visitors need to score from this attacking foray if they are to have any chance of pinching the points in this one.
    72''
  • So close for the Sharks!  Makazole Mapimpi looks certain to score in the corner however he is brilliantly chased down from behind by Luke Jacobson and, in reaching for the paint, loses a handle on the ball.
    70''
  • Penalty Goal
    PENALTY GOAL! Sharks (Robert du Preez) 28-17 Sharks
    69''
  • The TMO review concludes that a penalty will be the only sanction - a subsequent high tackle closer to goal will result in a kick at the posts by Robert du Preez.
    67''
  • We have a break in play whilst the TMO reviews a replay of a crunching tackle by Johnny Faauli on Robert du Preez.
    66''
  • A promising build up from the Chiefs comes to nought after some loose handling results in a turnover to the Sharks.
    65''
  • Some good scrambling defence from the Chiefs and the visitors have been rewarded with a penalty - it's against the Sharks for not releasing the ball following some solid work at the breakdown by Jesse Parete.
    63''
  • We are inside the final quarter and it is the Sharks on top on the scoreboard and controlling general play - as we saw in the first half however, there's still plenty of time here for the Chiefs if they are good enough.
    62''
  • Conversion
    CONVERSION! Sharks (Robert du Preez) 25-17 Sharks
    61''
  • All too easy for the Sharks!  On the base of yet another solid scrum from the home side, Cameron Wright skips away before slicing through a huge gap in the defensive line and the replacement scrum half finds the try line right under the posts.
    60''
  • Try
    TRY! Sharks (Cameron Wright) 23-17 Sharks
    59''
  • A massive scrum from the Sharks' forward pack causes an error from the Chiefs right on their own line - a huge opportunity here for the home side to make the visitors' pay.
    57''
  • MISS! The penalty goal attempt from Robert du Preez fades across the face of the posts and the flags stay down - it's the Sharks clinging to a one point advantage.
    55''
  • Michael Allardice is penalised for offside for his tackle on Armand van der Merwe and so Robert du Preez will line up for his third penalty goal of the match.
    51''
  • The Chiefs are penalised for a high tackle and, with the resultant penalty goal attempt, Robert du Preez edges the Sharks back into the lead.
    51''

  • Conversion
    CONVERSION! Chiefs (Marty McKenzie) 17-15 Chiefs
    49''
  • With time and space, the Sharks look to set up a counter attack from inside their territory however Andre Esterhuizen watches on in horror as his pass is chopped off by Charlie Ngatai who, with just the try line ahead, wanders in under the posts.
    47''
  • Try
    TRY! Chiefs (Charlie Ngatai) 15-15
    46''
  • A conservative approach from the Sharks with Robert du Preez, who has time at the back, measuring his kick for touch and taking play up towards the half way line.
    45''
  • MISS! A rare miss from the boot of Robert du Preez who watches his conversion attempt veer away to the right hand side.
    44''
  • The Sharks have the first try of the second half!  The home side spread the ball out to the left where they have all the numbers and it is Lwazi Mvovo, on the end of the chain of the passes, who strolls over to score.
    43''
  • Try
    TRY! Sharks (Lwazi Mvovo) 15-10 Sharks
    43''
  •  As was the case in the first half, the Sharks have started brightly and are looking extremely dangerous on attack.
    42''
  • SECOND HALF - Marty McKenzie gets us underway in the second half.
    40''
  • HALF TIME - A see-sawing first half comes to an end in Durban.  The Sharks burst from the blocks in the opening quarter hour and raced to an early lead however the Chiefs, surviving on limited possession and territory, were able to muscle their way back into the contest.  At half time, we are all square with the scoreboard locked at 10-10.
    '
  • The half time siren has sounded but there will be just enough time for a scrum on half way - it's the Chiefs with the feed.
    40''
  • Robert du Preez, with plenty of time at the back to size up his options, launches his kick into touch for a Chiefs' line out throw right on the half way line.
    38''
  • Marty McKenzie sends his penalty goal attempt straight between the uprights and we are all square in Durban inside the last 4 minutes of this first half.
    37''
  • Penalty Goal
    PENALTY GOAL! Chiefs (Marty McKenzie) 10-10
    36''
  • Philip van der Walt has been penalised for a high tackle and so Marty McKenzie will line up from virtually right in front of the posts to level the scores with half time approaching.
    35''
  • Armand van der Merwe advances the ball inside the Chiefs' 22 however the visitors have plenty of numbers back in cover defence and the Sharks' hooker is bundled over the touch line.
    32''
  • An opportunity lost for the Sharks!  The pass is popped up for Andre Esterhuizen who has the try line at his mercy however some miscommunication results in the inside-centre spilling the ball.
    30''
  • No advantage to the Sharks and so we will come back for the offside penalty against the Chiefs.  The Sharks elect to take the scrum feed just 5m out from the try line.
    28''
  • The Sharks are knocking on the door here - the home side are just 5m out from the Chiefs' line with a penalty advantage being played.
    26''
  • Brilliant try saving tackle from Shaun Stevenson!  On the counter attack and with just the try line ahead, Curwin Bosch looks certain to score the Sharks' second try however the Chiefs' full back chases him down, applying the perfect tackle just a metre from the try line.
    23''
  • The Chiefs keep the ball in very close and edge their way inside the 22 before the Sharks win a crucial turnover to prevent the visitors advancing any further.
    21''
  • Conversion
    CONVERSION! Chiefs (Marty McKenzie) 10-7 Sharks
    21''
  • The Chiefs hit back with their first try of the match!  A brilliantly executed set piece play with Tyler Ardron getting on the end of a long throw from the line out and the lock smashes his way through the defence to score.
    19''
  • Try
    TRY! Chiefs (Tyler Ardron) 10-4 Sharks
    18''
  • The Chiefs win a much needed penalty, against the Sharks' player for not supporting his body weight, and so Marty McKenzie will kick for touch deep in Sharks' territory.
    16''
  • As the scoreboard suggests, the Sharks have dominated the opening exchanges - the home side have enjoyed almost 70% of possession and have another chance, with the scrum feed, to go on the front foot.
    14''
  • Conversion
    CONVERSION! Sharks (Robert du Preez) 10-0 Sharks
    13''
  • The Sharks are in for the first try of the match!  A brilliant build up from the Sharks' front row has the Chiefs' defence at sixes and sevens - the home side spread to the right where there is a huge line of black shirts and it will be Robert du Preez who takes it to the paint.
    10''
  • Try
    TRY! Sharks (Robert du Preez) 8-0 Sharks
    9''
  •  A sloppy passage of play from the Chiefs results in a turnover and the Sharks now have an opportunity to launch an attacking foray from the half way line.
    7''
  • The penalty goal attempt from  Robert du Preez could not have been straighter and so, with the flags raised, the Sharks take an early lead.
    6''
  • Penalty Goal
    PENALTY GOAL! Sharks (Robert du Preez) 3-0 Sharks
    5''
  • Successive penalties to the Sharks has the home side right on top in the early minutes - Robert du Preez will line up for the first points from close range on a 45 degree angle.
    3''
  • The forward packs are straight into the thick of it with the first scrum of the match within the first minute - it's the Sharks with the feed inside Chiefs' territory.
    1''
  • FIRST HALF - Curwin Bosch puts boot to ball for the Sharks and we are underway in Durban!
    1''
