Highlanders go down to Sharks

In the last match of the Super 14 Round 3 The Sharks hosted the Highlanders who have so far not had a succesful tour in South Africa.

The Sharks on the other hand have had an impressive start to their Super 14 season albeit that they have not had a match away from home yet.
The Sharks should could have scored another try or two but made mistakes .

All points for the Sharks were scored by Percy Montgomery and the Sharks who are the only team who have not lost a match yet in the 2007 Super 14.


If the Sharks go continue down the road they are on, this Highlanders loss will be less painful.
