The Sharks put one foot in the Super Rugby play-offs with a battling 26-10 victory over the Cheetahs.

Tries from JP Pietersen and Stefan Ungerer helped the hosts shrug off a lacklustre start, where Tendai Mtawarira was sin-binned.

Raymond Rhule's converted try handed the Cheetahs an early lead, only for the Sharks to hit back, with Garth April landing 16 points from the tee.
