Joe Pietersen guides Sharks to victory over Stormers

Joe Pietersen's late try clinched an 18-13 triumph for the Sharks against the Stormers during a tense Super Rugby clash in Cape Town.

It was fitting the 31-year-old full-back, who scored all of the Sharks' points apart from a 45th-minute penalty try, had the final say as he darted over with four minutes remaining.

The Stormers, who led 10-3 at half time, crossed the whitewash through Leolin Zas while Kurt Coleman kicked two penalties and a conversion in an eight-point haul.

Sharks now lead the way in the in the South African Group as the only unbeaten side after inflicting a first defeat in three matches on the second-placed Stormers.
