Stormers edge out Sharks

 The Stormers staged a dramatic fightback in the last 15 minutes to edge out the Sharks 17-16 in the final Neo Africa Tri-Series clash at Newlands on Saturday evening.
 Stormers replacement lock Adriaan Fondse scored the winning try with only a minute left on the clock, and replacement fullback Lionel Cronje slotted the easy conversion to hand his team victory in the dying moments of the match.
 The Stormers were 16-3 behind with just 13 minutes left as the Sharks dominated proceedings up to that point.
 Sharks coach John Plumtree’s motivational talk after their lacklustre display against the Lions on Tuesday night worked wonders as his team overpowered the Stormers in the physical collisions. – Sapa
