22 - 29
Full Time
Blow by Blow
80 Reinach hacks the ball into touch as soon as he hears the hooter. Good away win to start the Sharks' season.
77 Penalty - Lambie pops over a penalty and the Sharks now have a seven-point gap. Four minutes left.
68 Penalty - Goosen pops over a penalty and this game now has only four points in it.
64 Conversion - Goosen slots his second one.
63 Try - Another brilliant bit of continuity again from the Cheetahs, who continue to find support runners every time there's contact. Sadie breaks the line, eventually, and runs it in next to the corner flag.
60 Conversion - Goosen converts.
59 Try - Labuschagne holds on to a brilliant inside pass from Van der Walt and runs into the corner.
50 Penalty - Three more from Lambie. This one was his toughest attempt of the lot.
47 Conversion - Lambie, unlike his opposite number, can't miss today.
46 Try - The Sharks launch a maul from a 5-metre lineout. It is brought down short of the line, but Coetzee picks up and falls over.
