With only one more match remaining in the Sharks' Australasia tour against the Melbourne Rebels on Saturday 10:15 local time, a win by the Sharks will see them return with a 75% winning rate on tour with the loss against 22-38 loss against the Hurricanes the only blemish.

Head coach Sean Everitt said “We’re obviously very happy with the five tries we scored, Makazole Mapimpi was on a hat-trick when he gave the ball to Curwin to celebrate his 50th game. Our guys are in a good place, they’re learning quickly and the energy they display on the field shows us that they’re a happy team and hopefully, we can continue to improve from week to week so that we get home, we can put in a good performance at Jonsson Kings Park.”

“We are very happy with the outcome of the game against the Melbourne Rebels,” he admitted. “I thought we improved hugely in our set-piece. The scrumming and the lineout work was way better than it was the previous week and credit must go to the forwards who put a lot of work into this in the week leading into the game. We said after the Hurricanes’ game that we would fix the problems and I think we rectified that, although it wasn’t perfect because we lost one or two lineouts in the second half.”
