Lions dominate Sharks to claim victory

An impressive first half from the Lions helped them see off Super Rugby rivals Sharks to seal top spot in Africa Conference 2.

The 37-10 win in Cape Town was enough to see Lions top the overall table as Ruan Combrinck, Rohan Janse van Rensburg, Malcolm Marx and Ruan Ackermann all went over for first-half tries for the hosts.

Coming out 27 points behind after the interval, Sharks fell further adrift following a Jaco Kriel try but they at least chalked up some points as Lwazi Mvovo and Chiliboy Ralepelle went over late on.
