RECAP: Sharks v Stormers
READERS’ FORUM: Welcome to our live coverage of the Rainbow Cup South Africa Round Four match between the Sharks and Stormers at Kings Park.
Reniel Hugo scored a hat-trick of tries as the Sharks recovered from a 7-23 deficit to win 33-30 when these sides met in Cape Town in Round One.
The Stormers have been involved in another two tight affairs since then, losing 16-20 to the Bulls, before beating the Lions 39-37.
However, they have not won back-to-back away games since beating the Cheetahs and the Bulls in Super Rugby in July 2017.
