Lwazi Mvovo hits the turbos for a great try against the Brumbies

The Sharks beat the Brumbies in Canberra for the first time since 1998 as they came away with a 29-26 win despite a late fight back from the hosts. One of the tries of the match was this effort from the visitors, and speedster Lwazi Mvovo. 

At 29-19 to the Sharks with ten minutes left, the game looked wrapped up but a late effort from Nic White had them scrambling, and the home crowd of Canberra on their feet. It looked as though it could be another last minute win, but the Sharks held them off and took the spoils.

"To be 10 points up with four minutes to go on the clock, you'd expect it would pretty much be game over, but we've seen in this competition what can happen," said Sharks coach John Plumtree.

"I was just pleased to hear that final whistle," he added.

It was the first loss for the impressive Brumbies this season, who despite an exodus of players and a change in management, have put in some great performances.

Young Jesse Mogg had scored a nicely taken try earlier, which could possibly have also been featured on here, but the try of the game was this scorcher from winger Lwazi Mvovo, who handled twice then streaked down field before turning on the afterburners.

The Sharks head to New Zealand next, to play the Hurricanes in round seven.

Nice finish, but that offload was superb. We need some 2nd rower highlights Rd!

Very nicely done. Didn't realise Michalak played for the sharks. Just googled him and he is only 29, seemed like years ago that he looked so old, I suppose that is injuries for you...

Honestly, I don't see how Ndungane gets the nod ahead of him for the Springboks. He seems a lot more dynamic and more lethal with the ball in hand.

Watched this match "unlive" today -a few days after the fact- on Canal+ (French private channel), I had just managed to avoid Rugbydump or other rugby channel updates on the match ... so managed to watch it in a "pseudo-live" context today.
So I must say that this try just came out of nowhere!!! Very impressive to watch live!!
But on the other hand, because of strangely inadequate behavior from both teams on the field, I am now utterly convinced that Super rugby is a "doesn't really matter if we lose" version of Heinekun Cup rugby. Don't mean to sound NH-bitter by saying this! But at some point the Sharks, or the Brumbies, however unstoppable, seemed to not really care whether they won ... no relegation, hmmm?

I agree. The best part of the play was the offload.
