12 Mar 19:10

Well done to the Sharks, who showed more composure than their bumbling opponents!

There's no doubt that TMO Marius Jonker's penalty try decision swung the momentum of the match, but the Stormers lacked composure and maturity in the way they responded after that.

78'- Pietersen misses with his conversion attempt from the corner but it may not matter...

Stormers 13-18 Sharks

12 Mar 19:03
76'- TRY awarded to Joe Pietersen!
12 Mar 19:03
76'- It was a brilliant break from JP Pietersen, who ran from halfway after receiving a kick. He off-loaded to Joe Pietersen who darted for the line, but was he held up by Kolbe?

64'- Stormers sub: Notshe on for Kolisi.
12 Mar 18:45

12 Mar 18:36

57'- Jonker decides there was nothing in it.

Lourens Adriaanse was seen elbowing Kebble, before Ntubeni took exception to it. Just a bit of handbags.

The original penalty stands as both teams get a stern talking to.

12 Mar 18:34


However, TMO Marius Jonker is again called into action. This time for potential foul play at the scrum.
