The Sharks romped to an 80-3, 12-try to nothing victory against the Valke in Nigel last night. Jacques Botes was the hero as he scored a hat trick of tries.
There were solid performances from most of the team, with Keegan Daniel (himself a double try scorer) combining well with Botes to run the Valke ragged. Starting halfbacks Rory Kockott and especially Steve Meyer were slick and accurate, with centres Dwayne Jenner (on for Andries Strauss) and Piet Lindeque providing plenty of ball for the outside backs to attack with.
All in all, a highly successful hit-out, although the quality of the opposition left much to be desired.
Sharks: tries by Botes (3), Daniel (2), Beast Mtawarira, Mark Richards, Dwayne Jenner, Stefan Terblanche, Kyle Cooper and Charl McLeod. Conversions added by Kockott (7), Monty Dumond, Botes and Daniel
