Sharks beat Cheetahs

Ap

DURBAN - The Sharks consolidated their lead at the top of the Super Rugby table as they beat the Cheetahs 19-8 in a drab South African derby yesterday.

Just six points were scored in the first-half of a game that was short on quality, and Francois Steyn's three penalties proved decisive after both sides registered a try apiece in the second period.

Although Rayno Benjamin's try for the Cheetahs in the 65th minute suggested that the game was headed toward a tight conclusion, Jean Deysel crossed for the Sharks five minutes later to put the encounter to bed.

The victory gave the Sharks a six-point lead over Australia's Brumbies at the top of the standings.
