Sharks v Bulls - Live
Sharks 16 - 18 Bulls
80 That they do. Full-time in Durban. Sharks 16-18 Bulls.
79 Time is running out here for the Sharks, who need the ball. Then when they do get their hands on it, they choose to kick...explain that one. So, the Bulls will put this one out when the hooter sounds.
78 The Sharks had a chance to reply there if they could have found Lambie in the pocket, but a knock-on from replacement prop Wiehahn Herbst in the 22 foiled that one. A grandstand finish then in Durban.
75 STEYN PENALTY! 16-18! Just like that, the Bulls are back in front after the Beast took out a player.
74 LAMBIE CONVERSION! 16-15! And the conversion is equally as impressive. The Sharks lead in Durban.
72 MCLEOD TRY! 14-15! They've done it. The scrum-half picks blind and has enough strength to dot down.
71 Finally some attack-minded rugby to speak of as Mvovo is put through a hole by Lambie. They are now five metres out with Lindeque carrying it on. Can they make it count here from an attacking scrum?
69 The Bulls survive and Steyn eventually can clear from his own in-goal. Six points is the margin here.
66 Now Visser is making the error, losing the ball out of his hands in his 22 with no one close to him. That results in the Sharks having an attacking scrum five metres out with fourteen minutes remaining.
64 Steyn has just had a shocker himself mind you as a penalty out of hand runs dead in-goal. Poor rugby.
62 STEYN PENALTY! 9-15! Daniel is penalised by Kaplan for pulling down a maul. Poor from the captain.
59 Unlucky for Lindeque as his hack towards the try-line is got to first by Bull Engelbrecht. Further encouragement for the Sharks though, who are a man down right now as Basson is back on the field.
55 LAMBIE PENALTY! 9-12! But Lambie responds after a good spell of running rugby from the Sharks. Cooper was heavily involved in that passage, which saw the hosts get to within five before the Bulls offence.
51 STEYN PENALTY! 6-12! And the Bulls ten makes no mistake.
50 VAN DER MERWE YELLOW! He goes for taking out the man at a line-out.
49 LAMBIE PENALTY! 6-9! Calmness from Lambie as he sends over three, despite having to replace the ball.
46 Now a mistake by full-back Visser, who kicks the ball out on the full when it had been taken back.
45 BASSON YELLOW! This will help the Sharks then. Basson is in the bin after lifting Lambie above the horizontal. Here come those Sharks via Alberts and then Coetzee, taking them to within 40 metres.
42 Welcome back to Kings Park where Lambie restarts the action with a long kick right down the middle of the field. The Sharks get the ball back soon after too as Steyn's clearing kick does not find touch, but ultimately Alberts is held up in contact. That means it will be a Bulls scrum in their own 22.
Sharks 3 - 9 Bulls
40 That is that for the first-half and the Bulls go into the dressing rooms 9-3 up. It's been a physical clash, as expected, and the Sharks will need to dig deep and find something if they are to win this.
37 Lambie misses in reply off the tee as things don't seem to be going the Sharks' way in this derby. They now have to attack from halfway with an onrushing Bulls defence looking hungry before half-time.
35 STEYN PENALTY! 3-9! But halfway is by no means out of Steyn's range as the Sharks pay for an offence.
33 And now Du Toit has put in a massive hit that lifts his crowd and team, who now move up to halfway.
31 Engelbrecht could make amends for his earlier mishap here as he slips through the defence on the Sharks' 22. That a great run and the recycled ball is there...however, a knock-on ends the attack.
28 No, he pulls that one wide.
27 Daniel is not being clever here as he gifts the Bulls a shot at three points by coming into a driving maul from the side. Here is Steyn again, this time from right side of the field at distance. Success?
25 However, the Sharks have an opportunity to score points here as Bulls outside centre JJ Engelbrecht puts the ball out on the full after it had been taken into the 22 by his team. Could it cost them?
22 STEYN PENALTY! 3-6! Keegan Daniel is penalised for coming offside at a Bulls driving maul so the net result is another three points to the sharp-shooter. As expected, this is a low-scoring derby clash.
19 And now the Pretoria franchise find their next scrum reversed after they go through the 90 degrees.
17 The Bulls are penalised at scrum time and it seems to be Dean Greyling blown for incorrect binding. Up steps full-back Riaan Viljoen from a long way out. Does he have the distance, yes, but it's just wide.
13 Surely crossing there from the Bulls just outside the Sharks 22 but nothing given by the officials. The Sharks do eventually win possession and thus begins a spell of kick-tennis between the sides.
10 STEYN PENALTY! 3-3! Franco van der Merwe is penalised for side entry so we are now level in Durban.
8 This will please Frans Ludeke though as the Sharks come offside and Steyn pushes the Bulls to the 22.
7 It doesn't get much better for the Bulls too as they are penalised at their own attacking scrum for not using the ball quickly enough. And that now turns into a penalty. Problems for the Bulls then.
4 LAMBIE PENALTY! 3-0! Great strike from the Springbok and the Sharks are three points to the good.
3 Free-kick to the Sharks after the Bulls go early at scrum time. Here comes Jannie du Plessis crashing it up beore Lambie and Lindeque combine on the left side. Eventually a penalty comes for the hosts.
1 Morne Steyns gets us going before Pat Lambie replies with a decent touch-finder. Ticks all round.
Team news Tendai Mtawarira, Pieter-Steph du Toit and Piet Lindeque start for the Sharks while Wynand Olivier, Bjorn Basson, Werner Kruger and Dean Greyling come in for the men from Pretoria. Kick-off awaits.
Welcome Hello and welcome to Kings Park for the final Super Rugby game of the weekend. It's the Sharks versus the Bulls here in this South African derby, with the latter looking to move away from the Cheetahs at the top of the conference. The Sharks meanwhile, know it's pretty much win or bust for the play-offs.
