10:25 - Well done to the Sharks
10:24 - Fantastic match!
21:01 - MAN-OF-THE-MATCH
Despite being on the losing side, Frans Steyn had a stellar game for the Sharks...
21:00 - The Sharks lost the game in the third quarter, where the Bulls started to dominate them physically. They fought back well, with Jake White making some key substitutions at the end, especially in the front row!
But credit to the Bulls who stayed calm under pressure at the end there and just deserved their win.
In next week's action, the Bulls host the Chiefs, while the Sharks tackle the Waratahs in Durban.
Be sure to join us for some more commentary next weekend!

19:46 - TMO IN ACTION

19:20 - CONVERSION by Tim Swiel.
