Durban - Despite making a cameo appearance off the bench, Jake White's son Wesley could not stop the Sharks Under-19s from going down to the Lions last Friday.

Wesley White, 18, was named on the bench for the junior Sharks team which took on the Lions in an Absa Under-19 clash at the Woodburn Stadium in Pietermaritzburg.

Wesley came on in the 50th minute and despite scoring the bonus point try for the hosts, he could not lead his side to victory as the Lions won 27-24.

The youngster plays hooker and was schooled at Diocesan College (Bishops) in Cape Town.

The loss saw the Sharks Under-19’s slip to fifth spot on the overall log, one point behind the Lions.

The match was a curtain raiser for the Sharks Under-21s, who also went down to the Lions (30-19).

In other Under-19 matches this weekend, the Free State Cheetahs beat the Blue Bulls 12-11, while the EP Kings beat the Leopards 32-26.
