Sharks have themselves to blame ... Pitched up simply to limp to a bland win. And then ... - Rob Houwing
FULL-TIME: Sharks 19-21 Stormers
What an extraordinary upset! The Stormers had a penalty advantage there at the end which saw Taute try his luck and break Durban hearts.
This was actually the first time in the game that the Stormers had been in front! But they were full value for their win. They stood their ground in the scrums and did not stand back physically to their much fancied opponents. The Sharks did not play like a team at the top of the Super Rugby table, and quite frankly kicked away far too much possession! They are now only two points clear at the top of the table...
80'- DROP GOAL! Jaco Taute slots a drop goal to win the game for the Stormers.
80'- One last ditch attacking surge by the Stormers...
They got it after McLeod strangely kicked away possession...
79'- Oh dear, Catrakilis drops the ball in midfield. He hasn't been on for too long but he's played his worst game ever in a Stormers jersey. They could actually have beaten the heavy-favoured Sharks here tonight...
Meanwhile, Sithembiso Sithole is also on for the Stormers to make his Super Rugby debut...
78'- Will the Sharks discipline hold? The Stormers are within striking range....
77'- Steyn's penalty attempt hits the crossbar! Tim Swiel follows up but knocks it just short of the tryline...
76'- The Sharks win a kickable penalty as the Stormers are caught off-side. Steyn to line up from about 40m out.
The Stormers are now asking Catrakilis why he didn't kick out earlier...
73'- A shocking mistake from Catrakilis as he fails to kick out a penalty - the second time the Stormers have done it tonight.
Marcell Coetzee is also back on now from his time spent in the sin-bin.
73'- Peter Grant is also on the park now for the Stormers. He kicks up field into Sharks territory as the Stormers sniff an unlikely win...
The Beast on the charge... (Gallo Images)
71'- The Sharks have absolutely dominated this period they've been down to 14 men...
70'- Argentine lock Manuel Carizza now on for the Stormers, replacing Ruan Botha.
69'- Steyn misses to the right. His first miss of the night.
68'- Kickable penalty to the Sharks as Stormers prop Vermaak is caught off-side.
Steyn will line up from close to the touchline...
67'- Jean Kleyn on at lock for the Stormers, replacing Michael Rhodes.
66'- Kyle Cooper makes a desperate tackle on Kolbe to dislodge the ball from his grasp. It could have led to a try for the Stormers as Kolbe was about to put in a dangerous chip kick in behind...
64'- Coetzee dived in on Groom from an off-side position. He did, however, save a try. So this could still end up saving the Sharks as the Stormers got away with only three points...
64'- Catrakilis slots the PENALTY from almost in front.
Sharks 19-18 Stormers
63'- YELLOW CARD
Sharks flank Marcell Coetzee is sent to the sin-bin for cynically conceding a penalty on his own tryline.
63'- A brilliant break in broken from Kolbe puts the Stormers hot on the attack. Only some desperate Sharks defence keeps them out...
60'- Charl McLeod and Kyle Cooper on for Sharks. Reinach and Bismarck off.
Not sure how Stormers have stayed in this game ... Sharks not shy to kick ball away, though ... Or forget to play rugby - Front Row Grunt
59'- Mike Willemse makes his Super Rugby debut, replacing Stormers hooker Stephan Coetzee.
Amazing Carr gets a yellow but not this. Bismarks body language pathetic - Rob Louw
54'- Catrakilis slots the PENALTY from close to the touchline.
Sharks 19-15 Stormers
53'- This is a strange call. Referee Peyper wanted to give a yellow card, but the TMO Johan Greeff said NO. He felt Reinach brought Kolbe down safely, despite lifting him beyond the horizontal. Reinach did well to bring him down safely, but I've seen a lot of yellow cards dished out for that. It was a tip tackle...
Why was Carr then earlier sent to the bin? Reinach's tackle was far more dangerous. There's just no consistency from the referees.
53'- Replays show Reinach making a tip tackle on Kolbe.
53'- TMO TIME
A Sharks player could be in trouble for a tip tackle on Kolbe.
Kurt got a proper smack there! Eish I hop you are OK my man - Judge Rugby
49' - Sideline concussion test for Coleman who took a big knock to the face while making a tackle. Already his eye is swollen up like a grapefruit. Demetri Catrakilis replaces him.
49'- No doubt Jake White wasn't happy about the Sharks going backwards at that last scrum - hence the substitution of Du Plessis.
48'- The Sharks have replaced prop Jannie du Plessis with Lourens Adriaanse.
Keegan Daniel also on for Etienne Oosthuizen.
47'- Steyn extends the Sharks lead by slotting the PENALTY.
Sharks 19-12 Stormers
46'- Kickable penalty to the Sharks after Tagicakibau is caught off side...
45'- The Sharks attack close to the Stormers 22m area, but run out of ideas. Steyn puts a poorly directed chip over the top which Taute comfortably covers.
44'- COLEMAN slots an easily penalty.
Sharks 16-12 Stormers
42' - But can you believe it, the Stormers push the Sharks off their own ball at the ensuing scrum. They attack and then win a kickable penalty.
That Springbok front row was absolutely annihilated there!
41'- However, a skew lineout throw by Stormers hooker Stephan Coetzee puts paid to their intended attack.
41'- Reinach puts his team under pressure when he kicks out on the full to give the Stormers a lineout inside Sharks territory...
20:05 - Welcome back for the second half. Steyn gets play underway...
Bloody terrible kicking display on the go at Kings Park. Worse than the time Amazulu played there - Sportbilly

HALF-TIME: Sharks 16-9 Stormers
I have a sneaky feeling that last try could open up the game a bit...
40'- CONVERSION by Steyn on the stroke of half-time.
38'- TRY to the Sharks! Cobus Reinach darts through close to the posts for the game's first try.
37' - A strong Sharks lineout drive puts them hot on the attack...
36'- A clever tactical kick from Reinach brings play up to the Stormers 22m area...
The Stormers win the ensuing lineout, but Groom then goes and kicks it out directly into touch... Talk about just giving the Sharks a platform to attack...
Wow,incredible,without doing much so far The Mighty Storm are level in Durbs,9-9,haha - Breyton Paulse
32'- Coleman slots the PENALTY.
Sharks 9-9 Stormers
30'- A Stormers driving maul inside the Sharks 22m is well defended by the home side but Reinach is then caught off-side, which gives Coleman the chance to level the scores again.
He lines up from about 15m in-field...
28'- Steyn slots a relatively simple PENALTY.
Sharks 9-6 Stormers
27'- Stormers prop Pat Cilliers caught off side which gives Steyn the chance to put the Sharks in front again...
25'- A rather sombre atmosphere currently at Kings Park. Also a poor crowd for a team topping the Super Rugby standings. I remember a time when Kings Park was packed very week even when the Sharks weren't winning...
24'- Coleman slots the PENALTY to level matters.
Sharks 6-6 Stormers
23'- Another kickable penalty for the Stormers as the Sharks go off their feet at a ruck.
Also some silky skills shown by Vermeulen who ran for about 20m before throwing a clever back-flip pass to his outside...
Coleman to line up, about 20m in from touch.
21'- Carr has since returned from the sin-bin for the Stormers...
19'- WOW, Frans Steyn attempts a drop goal from 55m out. What was incredible is that it had the legs against the wind! Unfortunately for the hosts he missed it to the right...
18'- Coleman slots the PENALTY from about 35m out, 20m in field...
Sharks 6-3 Stormers
17'- The Stormers win a kickable penalty when Sharks centre Sithole is penalised for obstructing Kolbe who was chasing a high ball from Taute....
14'- A beautiful left-footed kick from SP Marais puts the Sharks back into the Stormers 22m area...
However, a good lineout take from the visitors brings relief... for now...
You have to ask... Jaco Peyper had such a clear view of that why did he wait for the TMO? and then hand out a card! skokkend - Dan Retief
10'- Coleman kicks the ensuing kick-off directly into touch. JP Pietersen was clever though as he had his foot over the touchline while catching the ball.
However, that's two kick errors made by Coleman so far...
10'- Steyn slots the easy PENALTY from in front.
Sharks 6-0 Stormers
9'- YELLOW CARD to Nizaam Carr for a dangerously slinging Reinach to the ground. It wasn't a tip tackle. Not a yellow card in my book.
8'- After 13 phases, the Sharks lose possession when Carr slings Reinach to the ground...
However, referee Peyper wants to check it on the big screen.
6'- Shocking error from Coleman, who runs out of his 22m area, and then kicks out on the full. It gives the Sharks a perfect attacking opportunity...
6'- Stormers already under pressure at scrum time. They concede their first penalty in that department...
5'- Bismarck du Plessis already pushing a few Stormers off the ball. He is told by the referee to calm down. That's why I wouldn't pick Bismarck as Springbok captain.
3'- Steyn slots a relatively easy PENALTY from about 25m out, just to the left of the uprights.
Sharks 3-0 Stormers
2'- An early kickable penalty to the Sharks when Stormers lock Ruan Botha is penalised for coming in at the ruck from an off-side position.
1'- The Stormers show early enterprise by shifting it wide to Kolbe on the wing, but he loses it in contact...
19:10 - Kurt Coleman gets the game underway.
Jaco Peyper is tonight's referee.
19:09 - Flank Marcell Coetzee leads the Sharks out in what is his 50th Super Rugby game.
19:08 - Duane Vermeulen leads out an inexperienced Stormers side...
There's no rain in Durban tonight but a strong wind will make goal-kicking tough...
SILVERWARE FOR SHARKS!
The Bulls loss to the Lions tonight means the Sharks have won the SA Conference this year.
WHAT THE LOGS SAY...
The Sharks are currently top of both the SA Conference and the Overall standings, but they have several teams breathing down their necks.
The Stormers, after a woeful start to their campaign, have fought back nicely in recent weeks, and find themselves third in the SA Conference and 11th overall
