Cape Town - The Blue Bulls on Friday beat the Sharks 17-13 in their Currie Cup clash at Kings Park in Durban.

The men from Pretoria, who led 10-6 at the break, outscored their hosts two tries to one in very humid conditions.

It was the Bulls' sixth win of the season and they remain second on the overall standings, while the Sharks stay outside the top four and look likely to miss out on a semi-final spot.

In next weekend’s action, the Bulls host the EP Kings in Pretoria, while the Sharks travel to Kimberley to face Griquas.
