Lions too strong for Sharks

The Lions have leapfrogged Sharks to top the Africa 2 Super Rugby Conference after a 24-9 triumph in Durban.

First-half tries from lock Andries Ferreira and centre Lionel Mapoe put Lions in the driving seat, with both being awarded after TMO reviews. Elton Jantjies added a conversion and four penalties to wrap up the win.

The Sharks, who have now lost back-to-back games at home, were well shackled at the Kings Park Stadium and all their points came from Joe Pietersen's boot.
