Run of Play
81Aaron Cruden Penalty - The hooter goes and two seconds later the Sharks give away a penalty. There goes their extra bonus point as Cruden pops it over. The final whistle goes.
79Patrick Lambie Penalty - Two minutes left and this time the Sharks decide to go for the bonus point. Lambie pops a penalty over.
73The Sharks take the ball through dozens of pahses inside the Chiefs 22, but they refuse to go wide enough despite some numbers advantages. Eventually the ball is spilled and the Chiefs escape this time.
61Patrick Lambie Conversion - Lambie converts. Eight points in it now.
60Keegan Daniel Try - Cooper breaks through the middle of a ruck after stripping the ball. He finds support on his outside and Daniel hands-off the last defender to run in for the bonus-point try.
53Gareth Anscombe Penalty - Anscombe takes the Chiefs out to more than two converted tries. All the momentum with the again.
48Gareth Anscombe Conversion - Anscombe converts.
47Tim Nanai-Williams Try - The Chiefs have their bonus point. Cruden stabs through a grubber and Viljoen fails to gather it as he slides toward the ball. Nanai-Williams is over for his second.
41Cruden restarts with Deysel driving it out of his 22. Lambie puts it on the boot and finds touch.
40The halftime whistle goes as Lambie finds touch.
39Patrick Lambie Conversion - This time the conversion is good. Only five points in this now. How's this for a half of two halves?
38Derick Minnie Try - Another lineout maul and another try for Minnie. The Sharks are now well and truly in this.
34Patrick Lambie Missed Conversion - The conversion misses right.
33Lubabalo Mtembu Try - Mtembu is over after Lambie steps inside and pops off an offload. Good try for the Sharks.
23Patrick Lambie Conversion - Lambie converts from the left-hand touchline.

17Gareth Anscombe Conversion - Anscombe adds two more.
16Tim Nanai-Williams Try - Sloppy pass by Du Toit and Tim Nanai-Williams intercepts. Lambie is no match in the footrace. Three tries inside five minutes, and it's good night nurse!
13Gareth Anscombe Conversion - The conversion is good.
12Bundee Aki Try - Messam breaks through the breakdown in midfield and gets an offload away to Aki. The centre is over for try number two.
10Gareth Anscombe Conversion - Anscombe pops over the conversion.
9Asaeli Tikoirotuma Try - The Chiefs win a lineout on the Sharks 22. Tikoirotuma joins the midfield at pace and the Sharks did not see that coming. He is straight through for the opening try. Troubling signs for the Sharks here.
7Gareth Anscombe Penalty - Anscombe makes no mistake with his first shot at goal. It was almost a try there, but the Sharks were having none of it, gladly giving away a penalty as soon as the ball went to ground.
4Patrick Lambie Missed Penalty - Lambie has a chance to take the early lead, but his kick misses left as the cowbells ring.
1Lambie starts the match for the Sharks. His deep kick is safely fielded and booted to touch on halfway.
