The upbeat Sharks have a simple hope of building on their “very pleasing” victory on Cheetahs’ turf last weekend, when they host the improved Griquas for the start of the second half of the Currie Cup season at Kings Park on Saturday.

That eventuality will, of course, bolster their handsome position at the top of the standings of the Carling sponsored domestic competition, but also allow them to keep looking positively towards the new Pro16 competition coming afterwards.

Uplifted Sharks coach Sean Everitt says last Saturday’s 47-30 win over the Cheetahs, in which his pumped team scored five tries after a fixtures break, was one to really savour for a number of his players because they have rarely tasted victory in Bloemfontein.
