Sean Everitt’s side led 19-3 at one stage thanks to tries from Springboks duo Lukhanyo Am and Makazole Mapimpi and the kicking of Boeta Chamberlain, who ended the game with 12 points.

However, Damian Willemse touched down against the run of play 12 minutes into the second period before a pair of penalty tries robbed the Sharks of the win.

The second came right at the death, with Aphelele Fassi penalised for a deliberate knock on when the Stormers had a two-man overlap.

The Sharks stay top of the United Rugby Championship’s South African Shield but were unable to stretch their two-point advantage over the second-placed Stormers.
