  • FULL TIME - The Reds have pulled off a stunning upset victory in Durban!  It was an arm-wrestle after the break with both sides managing just one try apiece - the Sharks controlled possession and territory but the story of the match was the handling errors that resulted in the host side throwing away a host of missed opportunities. A famous 21-14 victory for the Reds who have not triumphed at this venue since 2004.
