RECAP: Sharks v Stormers
READERS’ FORUM: Welcome to our live coverage of the United Rugby Championship Round 11 match between the Sharks and Stormers at Kings Park.
The Sharks will go into their latest URC game with confidence levels topped up on the back of three wins in their last four matches.
The Sharks have only lost once in Durban since July, going down to a 25-34 Currie Cup defeat against Western Province.
But they will encounter a Stormers outfit also in form, having lost one of their last four fixtures and being unbeaten in three successive away matches since losing to Munster in October.
Stormers edged the Sharks 25-22 in their last meeting – their first triumph against them for more than two years.
