CURRIE CUP: Border hold off Sharks

The Border Bulldogs clinched a 37-32 win over the Sharks in round two of the Currie Cup qualifiers, while there were also victories for SWD and Griquas on Friday.

In an exciting clash in East London, the hosts withstood a late onslaught by the Sharks to record a second successive win and their first bonus-point triumph of the season.

Border, who beat the Golden Lions in the opening round, outscored the struggling Sharks six tries to four to move up to third on the log. Border's right winger Makazole Mapimpi posed the biggest attacking threat to the Sharks, scoring an incredible four tries; while flyhalf Oliver Zono bagged a brace.
