Live is not available for this game.
  • Well the Sunwolves were in the game at 10-10 half way through the first half but from there the Sharks were dominant and broke away to record an easy 45-10 victory.  The Sharks owned possession for most of the night and broke a brave Sunwolves outfit apart in the second half.
    '
  • FULL TIME! Game over. Sharks 45 Sunwolves 10.
    '
  • Sunwolves trying to end the game on a positive note, throwing the ball around, but they lose the ball and its game over.  Sunwolves 10 Sharks 45.
    80'+2''
  • Siren sounds, the Sunwolves have the last opportunity with a scrum feed.
    80'''
  • One minute to go and the Sharks take another scrum feed looking for some icing on the cake here, although plenty on it already.
    79''
  • A further injury stoppage with under two minutes to go, I think everyone wants this one done and dusted now.
    79''
  • Inside the last three minutes the Sharks lead by 35 points.
    78''
  • The Sharks forward pack has been so impressive tonight, too big, too strong, too physical for the Sunwolves to handle.
    77''

    76''
  • Five minutes remaining its the Sharks leading 45-10.

    74''
  • Another injury stoppage, all players taking the opportunity for a well earned drink.

    72''
  • Sunwolves 10 Sharks 38.
    71''
  • Daniel du Preez this time a perfect kick to touch for the Sharks.  Ten minutes remaining both teams will be looking forward to the end of this game, played in draining conditions.
    70''
  • NO TRY! Sunwolves on field call is no try, I thought they were over, almost impossible to see on the replay, it may well stay as no try the referees call, as the cameras don't capture the key moment due to the huge pack of players on the line.
    69''
  • Still plenty of time for the Sharks to blow this lead out to an even larger margin.  The Sunwolves look drained.
    68''
  • The Sharks again drive the scrum over the line van der Merwe gets his second try of the night and Mr Perfect boot Robert du Preez converts again.  It's all the Sharks as they romp away to a 28 point lead.

    63''
  • Unlucky the Sunwolves they steel the ball away but then turn it over with a knock on as they looked to break the Sharks defensive line on the counter attack.
    63''

    James Moore off to the sin bin, he was the unlucky one they have been warned multiple times the Sunwolves as the Sharks continue to pour the pressure on.
    61''
  • Inside the final 20 minutes the Sharks continue to dominate possession.

    59''
  • Scrum feed for the Sharks 5 metres out, is it try time again?

    41''
  • KICK OFF! Here we go for the second half, the Sharks take the kick off leading by 14 points in Singapore over a brave Sunwolves outfit.  Possession in that first half was 68% to 32% the Sharks way.  Sunwolves need more of the ball if they are to get back into the game.
    41''
