    Cape Town - The Sharks on Tuesday expressed sadness after a rugby fan was killed outside Kings Park following their win over the Rebels on Saturday.

    According to the Rugby365 website, the spectator was involved in a fight on the outer-fields and consequently passed away.

    Sharks CEO Brian van Zyl clarified the details of the incident in a statement released to the media.

    "The Sharks are sad to advise that following the Sharks vs Rebels match, a fight occurred on the outer-fields at approximately 22:00, which resulted in the death of one of our spectators.

    "We have conducted our own internal investigation and are satisfied that our contracted service providers, Fidelity Security, and ER24 had done everything possible to assist in stopping the fight on the night.

    "We pride ourselves on providing a world-class display in a safe and secure environment. The safety of our patrons is of paramount importance. This is a senseless isolated incident and the stadium will ensure that we do everything possible to avoid incidents like this occurring in the future".

    The South African Police Service is currently carrying out an investigation.

    The Sharks thrashed the Rebels 64-7 to record their biggest ever win in Super Rugby. They currently top the South African conference with 17 points after five games and lie third on the overall log.

    The Durbanites have a bye this weekend before hosting the Crusaders on April 5.
