A DOMINANT first-half performance by the Cell C Sharks laid the platform for a convincing 41-20 Currie Cup Premier Division win over the Boland Cavaliers at the Boland Stadium in Wellington this past Friday.
The Cavaliers put up a brave second half display, scoring three tries in the last 40 minutes against two tries by the Sharks. Unfortunately the damage had already been done in the first half as the Sharks bagged six tries in total to secure a bonus-point victory.
