The Sharks youngsters destroyed the best of the Bulls at the Coca Cola Craven Week.

The Sharks won 53-33 after leading by 30 points in the first half. They lost a player to a red card and played the entire second half a man down.

The emphatic nature of the win was surprising, given the dominance of Affies players in the Bulls team.

The most entertaining match was South Western Districts’ 27-22 win against Eastern Province. The teams were evenly matched and produced a thrilling spectacle.
