    Sharks bag vital win in Argentina

    2017-04-29 23:26

    Cape Town - The Sharks claimed a valuable Super Rugby win over the Jaguares in Buenos Aires on Saturday.

    The Durbanites won 33-25, after the scores were level at 20-apiece at half-time.

    It was an entertaining match and the Sharks produced a much superior effort from last weekend’s dire 9-all draw with the Rebels in Durban. 

    This victory sees the Sharks narrow the gap on the Lions in Africa Conference 2 to nine points. The Lions had stretched their lead to 13 points earlier on Saturday with a 24-15 win over the Western Force in Perth.

    In next weekend’s action, the Sharks are back in Durban to entertain the Force, while the Jaguares will host the Sunwolves.
