A wonderful team try of interplay and fantastic handling sees Charl McLeod score the fifth try under the posts. Pat Lambie converts. Griquas kick-off but the hooter sounds and the game is over. The Sharks will end the weekend top of the log, regardless of the rest of the weekend's results.
Another change as Meyer Bosman comes on to replace Tim Whitehead and Jean Deysel is back after receiving stitches. The Sharks have a scrum on Griquas' 10m line. Keegan Daniel will put his feet up for the remainder of the game as Tera plays at eighthman. He finishes off a move that involves a number of players as they grind their way forward and he is over in the corner for the bonus point try. Jannie du Plessis comes on for Dale Chadwick as Pat Lambie takes the conversion which is converted from out wide.
The Sharks have negotiated another tricky attack from Griquas before forcing a mistake. Sharks scrum and Charl McLeod and Peet Marais replace Cobus Reinach and Anton Bresler.
Kyle Cooper heads for the bench to be replaced by Craig Burden.
The Sharks have showed remarkable commitment on defence with Griquas spending the last few minutes on attack but failing to make headway, before losing the ball forward in contact. Jean Deysel has left the field for blood and Tera Mtembu replaces him as The Sharks clear to touch.
Marnus Schoeman who was such a thorn in The Sharks' side in the first round match, has given away a few penalties and this one is in a kickable position. Lambie makes no mistake.
Griquas earn a penalty at a scrum. They kick to touch but lose the ball on the ensuing attack. The Sharks attack off a lineout of their own and JP Pietersen makes a great break before the ball is spun wide. Louis Ludik can't find Mvovo for the bonus point try.
Some exciting running with JP Pietersen and Louis Ludik combining well as the ball is taken 30m upfield before a penalty is awarded. Lambie makes no mistake.
The second half is under way as The Sharks field the high ball and then clear to touch under pressure.
The Sharks have their third try with Lwazi Mvovo powering over. Pat Lambie converts. Jannie Boschoff is off for 10 minutes after a spear tackle on Paul Jordaan.
The Sharks have suffered a misfortune with Keegan Daniel yellow carded for "cynically collapsing a maul". Griquas try to attack off a lineout but The Sharks counter-ruck and manage to clear.
Griquas make a terrible mistake by knocking the ball on in their own 22. The Sharks attack off the scrum and Pat Lambie puts in the perfect grubber which Louis Ludik runs onto and scores.
Francois Brummer has converted a penalty, his second attempt and first successful kick to get his team on the board, after The Sharks have been penalised for going off their feet at the ruck.
Reinach is in action again as he finds a gap and races 40m towards the touchline. He manages to hand-off the defender but he is brought down and a player dives on top of him and concedes a penalty. Lambie makes no mistake.
Unfortunately Odwa Ndungane has had to leave the field injured but he is replaced by Springbok Lwazi Mvovo.
It's trytime! Cobus Reinach has combined well with Odwa Ndungane and then gets the ball back from the dreadlocked wing as he dives over for the first try of the game. Pat Lambie converts.
Both teams are playing positive rugby and if this is anything to go by, defences are going to be tested in a major way.
Griquas make a mistake at the kick-off, failing to gather and it's a Sharks scrum. They run the ball but fail to make inroads, but already it's exciting stuff.
There have been changes to The Sharks side, Jacques Botes out and Marcell Coetzee starting in his place. It is cool but we should have a rain-free game.
Cobus Reinach, Louis Ludik, Lwazi Mvovo, Tera Mtembu, Charl McLeod
