Cape Town - The Golden Lions remained unbeaten in this year’s Currie Cup competition after beating the Sharks 31-16 at Kings Park in Durban on Saturday.
The men from Johannesburg, who led 7-6 at the break, claimed a full house of five log points courtesy of scoring four tries.
The Sharks had led 16-10 late in the second half, but the Lions came back roaring in the final 15 minutes to take the game away from the struggling Durbanites.
The Lions have won their first three games of the season, claiming the maximum 15 points on offer, while the Sharks have suffered two defeats from three starts.
