Sharks scrumhalf Rory Kockott has joined Morne Steyn as the leading Super 14 point-scorers at the halfway mark of the tournament.
Rugby 365 reports that Steyn, who previously stood alone at the top of the point-scoring standings, is joined by Kockott on 74 points with Chiefs pivot Stephen Donald trailing on 64 points.
The Sharks’ win against the Brumbies also took them to the top of the Super 14 standings on 26 points while the Bulls’ loss to the Highlanders sees them dropping into fourth place. However, the Bulls have only lost one game and they still have a game in hand.
Siteveni Sivivatu and JP Pietersen heads the try-scoring stakes with six tries each. Pietersen’s accumulation of five-pointers has been steady while Sivivatu racked up his six tries in the last two games.
The All Blacks speedster scored four tries against the Blues in Week Six and he grabbed another brace against the Reds at the weekend.
