Sharks remain second in the Africa 2 Conference, while Stormers are top of Africa 1 despite a form slump which has seen them lost five of their past six games.
Defending champions Hurricanes survived a test at Loftus Versfeld, beating Bulls 34-20.
Without star playmaker Beauden Barrett, Hurricanes ran in five tries to two to claim their win.
