Sensational Sergeal sinks Lions

Sergeal Petersen’s individual attacking genius kept the Cheetahs top of the Currie Cup table after six matches.

Petersen scored in the 81st minute as the Cheetahs beat the Lions 30-24. It was the Cheetahs fifth win in six games but it was also the Lions fifth Currie Cup defeat. The Lions, with a solitary competition win, are last.

The Sharks also left it late in Cape Town to deny Western Province. The hosts lead 20-14 after 70 minutes but the Sharks scored in the 75th minute through Inny Radebe and Rhyno Smith’s conversion made it 21-20.

The win consolidated the Sharks position in the competition’s top two.

On Friday night the Pumas crushed John Mitchell’s Bulls 51-15. The Bulls are sixth in a competition of seven teams.
