Sharks aim to end Australasia trip unbeaten

Reading Time: 2 minutes

The Sharks have a golden opportunity to finish their tour unbeaten when they take on the Chiefs in Hamilton, New Zealand on Saturday.

A win for the Durbanites will hand them a near perfect run after they beat the Waratahs and drew with the mighty Crusaders.

Sharks captain Louis Schreuder believes their final opponents on tour, pose a massive threat despite their poor form.

The Chiefs are bottom of the New Zealand conference with just three wins all season but Schreuder says they have the ability to produce moments of brilliance.

Schreuder says the tour has brought a new sense of confidence to his team-mates.

They faced a barrage of criticism before they headed overseas, after a woeful start to the competition which saw them lose four games at home.

Schreuder says he has enjoyed leading the group and watching the team grew in stature.

After a lack of opportunities in his preferred number 10 jumper, Curwin Bosch has taken his chance with open hands.

With Rob Du Preez Junior struggling for form, Bosch was handed the kicking duties on tour.

He was the standout player against the Crusaders, with all of their 21 points coming from his boot. Schreuder praised his new half-back partner. -Report by Thahir Asmal
