    Cape Town - The Cheetahs have beaten the Sharks in their Super Rugby clash at a wet Kings Park in Durban on Saturday.

    The Cheetahs won 12-6 after leading 7-3 at half-time.

    The Cheetahs scored the only tries of the match through wings Raymond Rhule and Willie le Roux, while flyhalf Burton Francis landed a conversion.

    The Sharks replied with two Patrick Lambie penalties.

    The Cheetahs picked up four points for their victory to move to the top of the South African Conference and third in the Overall standings.

    The Sharks had to be content with a single point for losing by seven or fewer points, but slipped to second in the SA Conference and sixth in the Overall log.

    In next weekend's Round 11 action, the Sharks travel to Hamilton to face the defending champion Chiefs (Saturday, April 27 at 09:35), while the Cheetahs welcome the Kings to Bloemfontein (Saturday, April 27 at 19:10).
