    Durban -Riaan Viljoen’s last-minute try helped the Sharks complete a late Vodacom Super Rugby fight back to secure a 22-20 victory over the Blues in Durban on Saturday.

    That resistance finally broke in the 23rd minute when Coetzee charged in on the left, following another marauding drive by the pack.
