PRE-SEASON REPORT: The Sharks hammered Russia 64-14 in a pre-season friendly in Durban on Friday.

It was a much better result for head coach Sean Everitt after the Sharks lost their first warm-up of the day 26-31 to NWU-Pukke.

However, the team that faced the university side was much weaker than the one that faced Russia.

Newcomers Ox Nche, Le Roux Roets, James Venter, Henco Venter, Sikhumbuzo Notshe, Jordan Chait and Madosh Tambwe all made their first appearance in Sharks colours in the Russia match.

The Sharks were well in control at half-time against the Russians with a 26-7 half-time lead before reaching their final tally of 64-14.

In the match against Pukke, the Sharks looker comfortable with a 19-5 lead at half-time. However, Pukke fought back valiantly to secure a tight win.

The Sharks face Russia again next Friday (January 17) before facing the Stormers in Johannesburg on SuperHero Sunday (January 19).
