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.
80' - No they can't as Burger fumbles it.
79'- Stormers throwing everything now at the Sharks. Andrews is penalised for a high tackle on Zas, which allows Coleman to set up a lineout five metres out.
Can the Stormers pull it off at the death here?
78'- Pietersen misses with his conversion attempt from the corner but it may not matter...
Stormers 13-18 Sharks
76'- TMO CALL
A possible try to the Sharks in the corner from Joe Pietersen.
