Sharks centre Lukhanyo Am wants to build on their Super Rugby win against the Lions this past weekend, saying it can spur them on to a strong finish to the campaign.

The Durbanites produced an excellent defensive effort to complete the double over the Johannesburg side with a 27-17 scoreline.

It was a welcome return to winning ways at home having lost their last two outings in front of their supporters before they departed on tour. Springbok midfielder Am talks about the importance of that victory.

The Sharks are now up to sixth on the overall Super Rugby conference table and a spot in the play-offs is still very much within their grasp.

This Saturday they welcome the Hurricanes to Kings Park for their final home game of the season.

Having lost four times at the Shark tank, Am says they know what needs to be done against the Kiwi outfit.

With Curwin Bosch dictating matters from flyhalf, the Sharks backline has enjoyed somewhat of resurgence in recent weeks.

Am made special mention of inform winger, Makazole Mapimpi who he believes has a big chance of making Rassie Erasmus’ Springbok squad for the upcoming 2019 Rugby World Cup. – Report by Thahir Asmal
