Oudtshoorn: Sharks XV fall to SWD eagles

2010-03-22 00:00

WHILE the Sharks were recording a satisfying Super 14 win in New Zealand, their second-stringers were stumbling to a disappointing 16-10 Vodacom Cup defeat against SWD Eagles in Oudtshoorn.

This was the SWD Eagles first win of the season and the second defeat for the Sharks XV in the South section of the cup.

The unbeaten Blue Bulls gained a 25-15 victory over the Leopards at Loftus Versfeld on Friday and they head the North section. The Cheetahs head the South section after defeating Eastern Province 25-16.

In Wellington, the Pampas XVs lost to the Boland (26-13), while WP thumped Border 29-0 at Newlands.

Defending champions Griquas are currently in second position on the North section log after their 42-26 victory over the Pumas.

Jerome Pretorius scored a couple of tries for the Sharks XV, but his efforts were not enough to deny SWD.

Scorers: SWD Eagles – Tries: Wayne Bennett, Baldwin McBean; Penalties: Jandré Blom, Eric Zana. Sharks XV – Tries: Jerome Pretorius (2).
