21:03 - A well-deserved win for the Sharks. They are now back on top of the overall Super Rugby standings. They bossed almost all the facets of play and it was only some gutsy defence from the Lions which kept them in the game.

In next week's action, the Lions travel to Cape Town to play the Stormers, while the Sharks are at home to the Cheetahs.


21:00 - PICTURE

Referee Craig Joubert was a tad frustrated by the constant complaining of Sharks skipper Bismarck du Plessis... (Gallo Images)


20:58 - JANNIE DU PLESSIS STILL MOANING!

Just after full-time, Jannie du Plessis can be heard complaining to referee Craig Joubert that he shouldn't have given him a yellow card earlier in the game.

You are wrong Jannie, go look at the replay. Foul play should not be tolerated!


20:58 - FULL-TIME: Lions 12-25 Sharks


20:57 - At the ensuing scrum, Ungerer passes to Marais who boots it out to end the game...


20:57 - Franco Mostert knocks it at the lineout and that should be that...


20:56 - With one minute left, the Lions have an attacking lineout inside the Sharks 22. They are hunting a bonus point...


20:55 - Etienne Oosthuizen also on for Willem Alberts, and Stefan Ungerer on for Charl McLeod.

Elton Jantjies also on for the Lions.


20:53  - Kyle Cooper has replaced Sharks captain Bismarck du Plessis.

The game should be over with just two-and-a-half minutes left...


20:51 - TWEETS

Love the fight in the Lions, but the greater good is served by the Sharks winning. They are the only SA team capable of winning it all - Clinton van der Berg

Now the Lions in the tomato sauce - as @Ashwinwillemse says, playing ketchup rugby! LOL - Dan Retief


20:48 - PENALTY converted by Steyn.

Lions 12-25 Sharks after 72 minutes.


20:47 - Another chance at points for the Sharks as Bismarck wins a penalty at the breakdown.

Steyn to line up from 35m out, about 15m in-field...


20:46 - ATTENDANCE: 35 000

Good to see the fans flocking back to Ellis Park!


20:45 - Dale Chadwick replaces The Beast for the Sharks.


20:45 - He misses it to the left...


20:45 - Steyn to line up another penalty for the Sharks. Right in the corner...


20:43 - CONVERSION by Steyn.

Lions 12-22 Sharks after 67 minutes.


20:42 - TRY! Lwazi Mvovo scores under the posts after a brilliant chip-and-chase by himself.

It was set up after S’bura Sithole won a brilliant turnover for the Sharks just outside the Lions 22m area.


20:41 - LIONS SKIPPER OFF

Warren Whiteley replaced by Jaco Kriel.


20:40 - PENALTY kicked by Boshoff.

Lions 12-15 Sharks after 64 minutes.


20:39 - The Lions look to hit right back and win a penalty when the Sharks are caught off-side...

Boshoff will line up a relatively easy kick...


20:38 - Three Lions substitutions made. Nos 1, 3 and 4 all off...


20:37 - PENALTY converted by Steyn.

Lions 9-15 Sharks after 62 minutes.


20:37 - De Klerk is caught off-side and Steyn will get an easy penalty chance...


20:36 - The Sharks counter and surge into the Lions 22m area...


20:35 -  A brilliant box-kick by De Klerk sees Mapoe chase it before dropping it cold after doing all the hard work! That could have spelled danger for the Sharks on half-way there...


20:34 - Robbie Coetzee is now permanently on for Willie Wepener at hooker for the Lions.


20:33 - PENALTY converted by Boshoff.

Lions 9-12 Sharks after 58 minutes.


20:32 - The TMO, Marius Jonker, rules NO TRY. But play goes back for a Lions penalty next to the posts. Marcell Coetzee the culprit...


20:30 - The Lions are over the line but look to be held up... The TMO has to decide.

Referee Craig Joubert thinks it was held up. He says he just wants to check and will go back for a Lions penalty as a Sharks player had played the ball off his feet at a ruck...


20:29 - A brilliant break from Courtnall Skosan in midfield puts the Lions hot on attack inside the Sharks 22m area...


20:27 - SP Marais has replaced centurion Odwa Ndungane for the Sharks. He will play fullback, with Lwazi Mvovo going to wing.

Lourens Adriaanse is also on at prop for Jannie du Plessis.


20:26 - Steyn next responds with a 63m drop attempt! He has the distance but it's away to the right...


20:25 - Steyn just about has the distance, but it's away to the left of the uprights...


20:25 - Another Sharks penalty. Steyn will again line up. This one is about 60m away!


20:24 - Steyn kicks another monster PENALTY.

Lions 6-12 Sharks after 51 minutes.


20:23 - Another penalty in range for Steyn. He will line up from about 55m out...


20:22 - The Beast is penalised at the ensuing restart, but the Lions opt for a quick tap only to lose it forward...

The Sharks then counter up-field via Mvovo before Jannie du Plessis drops it cold!

Moral of the story: The Lions should have taken the kick at goal!


20:21 - PENALTY by Steyn. A massive kick from the Springbok!

Lions 6-9 Sharks after 48 minutes.


20:20 - Lions captain Warren Whiteley goes off his feet at a ruck just inside the Sharks half...

Steyn to line up...


20:17 - Helter-skelter stuff early in the second half as both teams try and run from inside their own half. Some great turnovers halting the momentum of both though... It's 6-6 in that department so far!


20:14 - The second half has barely started and already there are problems at scrum time... Damn, these scrums are spoiling the modern game!


20:12 - The Sharks had 72% territory in the first half. If they maintain that they must surely win, right...!?


20:11 - Welcome back for the second period. Frans Steyn starts play...


20:09 - PICTURE

Alwyn Hollenbach on the charge... (Gallo Images)


20:03 - FIRST HALF STATS

Metres run: Lions 69-298 Sharks
Carries: Lions 21-59 Sharks
Defenders beaten: Lions 3-12 Sharks
Clean breaks: Lions 0-2 Sharks
Tackles made: Lions 57-22 Sharks
Tackles missed: Lions 12-3 Sharks
Turnovers won: Lions 5-5 Sharks
Kicks in play: Lions 15-14 Sharks
Lineouts won: Lions 5-8 Sharks
Lineouts lost: Lions 2-1 Sharks
Scrums won: Lions 4-1 Sharks
Scrums lost: Lions 1-0 Sharks
Penalties conceded: Lions 8-7 Sharks


19:59 - HALF-TIME: Lions 6-6 Sharks


19:58 - NO TRY! The TMO rules that Alberts held back Stefan Watermeyer and the Lions win a penalty. Absolutely the correct call!


19:56 - TRY/NO TRY?

Willem Alberts thinks he's scored for the Sharks but to me it looks like a Lions player was held back...

Alberts pounced after the ball was ripped out of Tendai Mtawarira's hands but Alberts held back a Lions player before diving on the ball.

The TMO must decide... he must also check for earlier indiscretions and/or knock-ons...


19:55 - Wepener is now back on for the Lions. He appears to have passed a concussion test.

But the Sharks are back on the attack...


19:53 - But the hosts win a penalty on the ground, and Boshoff kicks a MONSTER up-field to get them inside Sharks territory...


19:52 - Sharks hot on the attack, only scrambling Lions defence keeping them out...


19:50 - PICTURE

Deon van Rensburg's night ended early... (Gallo Images)



19:48 - PENALTY converted by Boshoff.

Lions 6-6 Sharks after 32 minutes.


19:46 - The Lions win a kickable penalty as Charl McLeod is caught off-side...

Boshoff lines up from about 40m out...


19:44 - Robbie Coetzee has replaced Willie Wepener at hooker for the Lions...


19:42 - JANNIE BACK!

Jannie du Plessis is now back from his time spent in the sin-bin. The Lions will be disappointed having not really bossed the period he was off...


19:42 - Frans Steyn tries a snap drop out of nowhere but misses it to the right...


19:40 - A penalty close to the touchline sees the Sharks opt for an attacking lineout... but they butcher it and the Lions are off the hook!


19:39 - Bok flank Marcell Coetzee proving a menace on the ground for the Lions. He wins a turnover to put the Sharks on attack...


19:34 - NEW FLYHALF FOR SHARKS

Heimar Williams has replaced Fred Zeilinga (hamstring) for the Sharks.

Frans Steyn will now play flyhalf...

Sharks depth to be really tested now!


19:33 - PENALTY converted by Boshoff. 

Lions 3-6 Sharks after 18 minutes.


19:32 - YELLOW CARD for Jannie du Plessis.

Good decision. That was cynical by the Bok prop! The Du Plessis brothers too often get away with off-the-ball incidents. Remember Bismarck's stamping incident against the Cheetahs in last year's Currie Cup semi-final?


19:31 - Referee Craig Joubert also asking for potential foul play by Jannie du Plessis, who played Lionel Mapoe off the ball with his shoulder... He should be off for that!


19:31 - OUCH! Another player is going off. Zeilinga has pulled a hamstring.


19:29 - Sharks penalised after the scrum, Faf de Klerk takes a quick tap and the move ends with a Sharks penalty...

Should have opted for goal there!


19:27 - Two knock-ons inside a minute from the Sharks - first from Jannie du Plessis and then Fred Zeilinga under a high ball - give the Lions an attacking chance inside Sharks territory...


19:26 - Let-off for the Lions - and transgressor Martin Muller - as Zeilinga misses it to the left.


19:25 - Ryan Kankowski is played in the air at a lineout which gives the Sharks another shot at goal.

Zeilinga to line up from about 35m out, 10m in from touch...


19:24 - A promising attacking chance from the Lions ends when Bismarck du Plessis wins a penalty on the ground. Immense strength displayed from the Bok hooker! 


19:22 - The Sharks dominate a scrum but are penalised for turning it... which gives the Lions an attacking chance inside Sharks territory...


19:19 - The Lions win the ball from the ensuing kick-off and Boshoff lines up a drop goal, but misses badly to the right.


19:18 - PENALTY

While all that was happening, the Sharks received a penalty, which Zeilinga converts from about 40m out. Lock Franco Mostert was caught off-side in front of the kicker...

Lions 0-6 Sharks after 5 minutes.


19:16 - OUCH! Lions wing Deon van Rensburg is in serious pain after contesting a high ball with Sharks fullback Lwazi Mvovo. The stretcher is called for...

Looks like a bad knock to the knee for Van Rensburg, who is replaced by Alwyn Hollenbach.


19:15 - PENALTY converted by Zeilinga.

Lions 0-3 Sharks after 4 minutes.


19:14 - Sharks win a penalty as the Lions are caught off-side close to their own line...

Zeilinga lines up from in front.


19:13 - A first lineout loss by the Lions gives the Sharks another attacking chance but a weak pass from Zeilinga halts play...


19:11 - A great start by the Sharks as Ndungane runs straight through half of the Lions team.

The Sharks surge up to the Lions 22m area but are tackle out...


19:11 - Boshoff starts proceedings...


19:08 - Odwa Ndungane runs in front for the Sharks for his 100th Super Rugby game!


19:07 - CHANGE TO SHARKS BENCH

Heymar Williams has replaced Paul Jordaan on the Sharks bench.


19:05 - It's great conditions for rugby at Ellis Park. Not much wind to speak of and cool, crisp conditions.

We won't see as much points as the previous game in Bloemfontein, but lets hope for some running rugby!

Welcome to Sport24's LIVE scoring and interactive commentary on today's Super Rugby match between the Lions and Sharks at Ellis Park in Johannesburg!


  • 80'

    LIONS 12-25 SHARKS

  • 80'

    Mvovo boots the ball to touch and his try aside, that wasn't one to remember. The Lions battled but a serious lack of execution and skill compounded their efforts as the Sharks just about did enough. Sharks win again and move back on top.

  • 77'

    Time still for the Lions to snatch something, as Jantjies kicks a penalty into the corner. Shockingly, the ball is lost forward...

  • 75'

    Scrum penalty to the Lions, Chadwick the guilty party. Sharks steal the lineout but the ball is lost forward.

  • 73'

    Watermeyer with a sharp break, but the Lions are chasing a bonus point now. Slow-paced attack and the ball is turned over. Marais kicks long and a scrappy bounce goes into touch. Knocked on by the Sharks.

  • 70'

    PENALTY, SHARKS, STEYN! 12-25: Ellis Park crowd going restless at the number of penalties against the Lions. Steyn has yet another shot and this one hangs inside the post.

  • 68'

    Breakdown penalty to the Sharks, a familiar sight, so Steyn lines up another three points. This one doesn't make it.

  • 66'

    TRY, SHARKS, MVOVO! 12-22: Magic! What a magical try from Mvovo. Brilliant chip and chase and the full-back wins the race to the ball and scoops up to score. A diamond in the middle of the dross. Steyn converts.

  • 64'

    PENALTY, LIONS, BOSHOFF! 12-15: Minnie creates an attack for the Lions with a good run, ending in a penalty. Time running out and nothing in it.

  • 62'

    PENALTY, SHARKS, STEYN! 9-15: A chip shot for Steyn and the Sharks' lead is six points again.

  • 61'

    Better from the Sharks as Mvovo scorches into the 22. Slowed down again but the Sharks are well-positioned. Penalty.

  • 59'

    PENALTY, LIONS, BOSHOFF! 9-12: Easy three and the Lions cut the deficit.

  • 58'

    Very difficult to glimpse through the mass of Sharks players, but we're having plenty of replays. No try, but a Lions penalty.

  • 57'

    Held up is the call... or is it? We're going to the TMO.

  • 56'

    A break! Skosan steps his way up to the Sharks 22. Very promising for the Lions who have to capitalise on this position.

  • 53'

    Steyn attempts another shot, this time from 60 metres, but this one doesn't make it. Ndungane off for the Sharks, replaced by Marais. Steyn now cannot stop kicking as he goes for a long-range drop goal, but that falls wide to the left.

  • 51'

    PENALTY, SHARKS, STEYN! 6-12: Steyn's kicking has been a bright spot, as he lands another super kick from way out through the middle.

  • 50'

    Mvovo tries to bring the game to life with a long break. Passes to Pietersen but he can't hit a runner, Lions turning over the ball and then over-kicking for the Sharks to drop out.

  • 48'

    PENALTY, SHARKS, STEYN! 6-9: Steyn lands an absurdly long-range strike, fading it in past the left post. Great shot.

  • 46'

    High kick from Steyn taken by Mapoe, who has looked threatening. Whiteley penalised at the breakdown though and the Sharks can clear.

  • 44'

    Testing bounce for Mvovo who clears, but not to touch. De Klerk hoists the ball high and it comes back the Lions way until Lewies intercepts. Sharks moving forward, chants of 'Beast' from the crowd until the ball is lost.

  • 42'

    Territory exchange is won by the Lions with a kick to touch from Boshoff. They need it, because the Sharks dominated that area in the first half, showing their experience.

  • 40'

    Do we have a try?! Mtawarira carries well but the ball is ripped from his grasp, with Alberts pouncing to dot down for the try. Upstairs to the TMO we go...

  • 40'

    Both teams back out for the second half as the Sharks restart. It can only get better.

  • 40'

    ...a try it is not! Watermeyer rips the ball and it flies backwards over the line, but that isn't the problem. We're going back to look a possible knock-on from McLeod and in the replay spot a penalty offence against the Sharks, so the Lions clear. False alarm there at the end of a hugely underwhelming half between two teams playing physical rugby. Second half coming up.

  • 40'

    LIONS 6-6 SHARKS

  • 38'

    Bismarck there again in defence to win a breakdown penalty. Neither team able to unlock the opposition defence just yet. Time ticking away until half-time.

  • 37'

    ...penalty though to the Lions, and in the knick of time. Boshoff clears to touch.

  • 35'

    This game is in sore need of a spark, with the Sharks seemingly more likely to provide it. Another multi-phase attack for the visitors looks good as Pietersen and Ndungane combine. Slow ball, but the Sharks are five metres out...

  • 33'

    PENALTY, LIONS, BOSHOFF! 6-6: Little to shout about early on in this game, but Boshoff's striking of the ball is impressive. Scores level.

  • 31'

    Good drive from the Sharks as McLeod pressures de Klerk, but the Lions clear. Mvovo returns it with interest but the Lions are counter-rucking well. Mapoe looks to have knocked on but play continues. Back for a penalty to the Lions, kickable.

  • 30'

    Another unforced error from the Sharks, Sithole this time dropping the pass. Lions clinging on here.

  • 28'

    Sithole running well as Steyn tries a snap drop goal, but it fades away to the right. Plenty of possession for the Sharks but few points to show for it. Jannie returns to the field.

  • 27'

    Lions manage to scramble the ball and clear, but back comes Mvovo. Steyn tries a chip over the top into the corner but it's out on the full.

  • 25'

    Sharks attacking well in the Lions 22, only a few metres short. Ndungane gets himself isolated on the far side but the Lions are pinged for taking out McLeod. Bismarck indicates to the corner.

  • 23'

    Scrum free-kick to the Sharks who hoist it high outside the 22. Wide pass to Ndungane who can't bring it in. Lions scrum in their 22.

  • 21'

    Penalty count swinging the way of the Lions now as they look for territory in the Sharks half. Lost forward in the tackle by Sithole. Stop-start so far this one.

  • 20'

    PENALTY, LIONS, BOSHOFF! 3-6: Super strike from Boshoff puts the Lions on the board.

  • 19'

    Countless errors from both teams so far in the first quarter as Zeilinga goes down with what looks like a hamstring injury. Penalty coming to the Sharks.

  • 19'

    YELLOW CARD, SHARKS, J.DU PLESSIS! TMO referral looking at an incident involving Jannie du Plessis, who is sent to the bin for checking Mapoe off the ball.

  • 17'

    Scrum swivels round and then the Lions win a penalty. Taken quick, surprising decision by the Lions and it doesn't work out as the Sharks win the penalty at the breakdown. Zeilinga clears.

  • 15'

    A first miss of the night for Zeilinga but the Sharks still have the territory. Turnover, Lions trying to run their way out of their half. High kick is missed by Zeilinga and then the Sharks knock on.

  • 14'

    Kankowski taken out in the air at the lineout, offering Zeilinga his third shot at goal.

  • 12'

    Phases of attack from the Lions but it comes to nothing as the Sharks clear their lines. Second wave of attack from the hosts but Bismarck is there to win the turnover at the breakdown. Top work from the Springbok.

  • 10'

    Scrum for the Lions on the far side and they win a penalty. Boshoff sends the ball up towards the Sharks 22.

  • 8'

    Zeilinga looking to make an attack happen with a chip over the top, but Skosan gets back in time. All the Sharks so far.

  • 6'

    PENALTY, SHARKS, ZEILINGA! 0-6: van Rensburg leaves the field as Zeilinga adds his second penalty with a superb long-range strike.

  • 5'

    PENALTY, SHARKS, ZEILINGA! 0-3: Simple shot for the youngsters who makes it count. Sharks lead.

  • 4'

    Boshoff can't gather de Klerk's pass, giving the Sharks a strong platform to attack from. Kankowski picks, Pietersen brought down five metres out. Penalty, Mapoe pinged and Zeilinga will go for goal.

  • 2'

    Overthrow from the Lions and McLeod does well charging forward. Wide pass from Zeilinga looking for Mvovo goes to no one. Another Lions lineout.

  • 0'

    Lions head coach Johan Ackermann has made just one change to his team as Derick Minnie returns from a spell out injured, replacing Jaco Kriel at flank.

  • 0'

    The Sharks' side is unchanged but there is a return to the squad from injury for centre Paul Jordaan. Willem Alberts slots in at lock, with Jean Deysel, Marcell Coetzee and Ryan Kankowski their back-row.

  • 0'

    Odwa Ndungane leads out the two sides on his 100th Super Rugby appearance. Only a light breeze at Ellis Park, conditions otherwise perfect.

  • 0'

    Boshoff kicks deep and Ndungane is already away! The centurion canters in the Lions half and this is a promising start for the Sharks. It ends as the visitors are bundled into touch.

  • 0'

    Last but by no means least we head to Johannesburg for the Lions versus Sharks clash, with the latter knowing a win here would put daylight between them and their South African rivals. Team news is next.
