Backs and forwards shared in the try-fest by the Durban franchise as they came from behind to lead 26-13 at half-time and monopolise second-half possession. It could have been even worse for bottom team Kings as Sharks centre Meyer Bosman missed five of nine conversion attempts at Kings Park. The final conversion was handed to loose forward substitute Jacques Botes in a touch of season-end spirit, but his kick was predictably low, wobbly and short.
