Sharks Blow Pau Out Of The Tank In Challenge Cup Opener In Durban

1 Year(s) Ago    👁 60

The Sharks exorcised the ghosts of the 44-10 defeat to the Bulls in the URC just over a week ago by opening their European Challenge Cup account with a similar score-line of 45-5, the riposte coach John Plumtree had demanded.

For the Sharks this game was always going to be about their response to the humiliation in Pretoria the week before. It did not matter whether Pau sent their A, B or C side to Durban for this opening match of the second-tier tournament to the Heineken Cup.
