Sharks: junior teams fall

2011-07-18 00:00

SHORTLY after the Sharks schoolboys had lost to the Blue Bulls at Craven Week, the U19 and U21 sides were also beaten in Durban by their Pretoria opponents.

Sharks U21 were willing and spirited, but lost 25-18 to the Bulls in the main curtain-raiser at King’s Park while the U19 team lost 33-21.

The Sharks U21s scored the first try when captain Monde Hadebe dived over off the back of a strong driving maul, and Gouws Prinsloo converted a difficult penalty as they trailed 8-12 to four Bulls kicks.

The Bulls scored from the kick-off (19-8) before Prinsloo raced in for an excellent try, which he converted (22-18), but an easy Bulls penalty settled the game (25-18).
