The Sharks recorded their biggest ever Super Rugby win over the Western Force as they romped to a 53-11 victory at Mr Price Kings Park on Saturday evening.
It was the Durban side’s sixth victory of the season and by far their most comprehensive, out-scoring their opponents seven tries to one.
Afterwards, Sharks coach John Plumtree said he was certainly pleased with the clinical edge displayed by his charges.
"We talked all week about being patient in attack and being patient defensively because we knew that the Force kept the ball for long periods of time. We knew we would have to choose our moments, once or twice we got it wrong, but generally I was really pleased. All in all, it was a pretty efficient win."
Leading 20-6 at half-time, fullback Louis Ludik finished off a well-worked try, followed by two sensational breakaway tries from Lwazi Mvovo to help seal the result and bonus-point.
This Saturday the Sharks will travel to Bloemfontein to take on the Cheetahs, before concluding their pool games with four more South African derbies.

Tries: Steven Sykes, Paul Jordaan, Louis Ludik, Lwazi Mvovo 2, Craig Burden, Jacques Botes
