RECAP: Sharks v Griquas
READERS’ FORUM: Welcome to our live coverage of the Currie Cup Round Eight encounter between the Sharks and Griquas at Kings Park.
Griquas, currently in the third spot on the log, have the unenviable task of facing the table-topping Sharks at Kings Park on Saturday.
The Durbanites have missed out on playing a number of games, but showed their class in their last encounter when they beat the Cheetahs in Bloemfontein.
