80 mins
The Sharks look to attack off the scrum but run into a wall, the ball is held up and the Lions have the scrum. They get the ball out and clear to touch and that's the end of a brave performance from The Sharks.

77 mins
The Sharks have taken the ball through 16 phases as they hammer away in search of the try that could win them the game. They have penalty advantage, then it expires before the Lions steal the ball on their line, then lose it forward for a Sharks scrum 5m from the tryline.

73 mins
Monde Hadebe is on as The Sharks have a lineout but lose the ball on attack and flank Jaco Kriel sprints all of 50m to score what hopefully will not be the match-winning try. Jantjies misses from in front.

69 mins
Ruan Combrinck has scored in the corner, but it looked like the Lions appeared to have knocked the ball on earlier and Keegan Daniel asks the ref to look at it. The TMO is called to adjudicate on the knock-on. However, the TMO says there is "no clear indication" of a knock. Daniel is livid but the try stands. The conversion strikes the uprights.

65 mins
The Sharks are forced to defend their line but end up giving away a penalty. Jantjies will kick for poles and it's over from right in front. Julian Redelinghuys replaces Dale Chadwick. Brynard Stander and Charl McLeod are also on.

58 mins
Paul Jordaan is onto the field and he has a small role in a great run from Ludik that sees The Sharks well into the Lions half. It's another penalty and Bosman nails it.

56 mins
Keegan Daniel is electric as he takes a pass and sidesteps his way 25m in the Lions half before being brought down. However, The Sharks have penalty advantage and Bosman adds the three.

54 mins
The Lions appear to have finally got into The Sharks 22, for the first time of the game, as their attack results in another penalty. Jantjies converts.

49 mins
The Lions get away what the TV replays shows to be a palpably forward pass and then earn a penalty somewhat fortuitously, given that advantage. Jantjies doesn't miss.

46 mins
The Sharks have been penalised on attack and Jantjies will look to add the first points of the half. He makes no mistake from 40m.

43 mins
Riaan Viljoen gets the second half underway with a high kick that Taute of the Lions gathers before Jantjies kicks back. The Sharks kick back, the Lions string a number of phases together on attack before losing possession. The Sharks kick back and the Lions make a bad mistake, carrying the ball back into their 22 and kicking directly out.

40 mins
The Sharks have an attacking scrum, and despite being under pressure, Cobus Reinach shows his speed as he dummies, sidesteps the defence and sprints the 20m to score his team's second try, just on the stroke of half-time, a wonderful psychological blow to put his team into a 10 point lead at the break.

35 mins
Louis Ludik receives the kick-off in his 22, dummies and feeds Lwazi Mvovo who gets to the halfway line before Keegan Daniel makes 40m with Odwa Ndungane finishing off to score the first try. The conversion bounces off both uprights but sadly not over.

29 mins
The Sharks have an attacking lineout after the Lions have cleared, but it was so close as Cobus Reinach came close to scoring, with his pass being knocked on just short of the line. The Sharks maul the ball up until they earn a penalty right in front and Bosman levels the scores.

27 mins
The Sharks have been penalised for being off their feet as they try to counter-ruck the ball from the Lions. Jantjies will look to put his team back in front, it's a good strike and it sails through.

19 mins
Meyer Bosman has equalised for The Sharks after The Lions were penalised at the kick-off.

18 mins
The Shark have been free-kicked on their scrum put-in, the Lions opt for another scrum and earn a penalty which Elton Jantjies will kick at posts. His conversion breaks the deadlock.

15 mins
The Lions have finally managed to get out of their half after The Sharks half hasn't been seen aside from the kick-off, but they fail to capitalise on their possession.

7 mins
The Lions are penalised for being off their feet in contesting the ball on the ground. Riaan Viljoen will take the long range kick but it's short and wide.

5 mins
A great break from Keegan Daniel and then Jacques Botes puts The Sharks right on the front foot. A long cross kick finds Botes out wide, but he is penalised for being in front of the kicker. The Lions attack but again, a forward pass puts an end to a promising attack.

1 mins
The Lions kick this big game off, The Sharks receive, Craig Burden powers through a tackle and The Sharks kick upfield. The Lions look to attack, but they're blown up for a forward pass.
