Sharks off to a flyer


The Cell C Sharks on Saturday produced a clinical display to defeat the Sunwolves 45-10 in their opening fixture in Singapore, in which Springbok midfielder Lukhanyo Am showed sublime form.

The Durbanites scored six tries to one after the Sunwolves opened the scoring early in the first half, when centre Shane Gates scooped up a chip kick to streak home.

However, the men from Durban quickly settled down and found their rhythm to stack up six converted tries through Akker van der Merwe (2), Makazole Mapimpi, Sibusiso Nkosi, Dan du Preez and replacement back Jeremy Ward.

They host the Blues at Jonsson Kings Park in their next match.
