Cape Town - Griquas have outplayed the defending champions Sharks in their opening Currie Cup match at Kings Park in Durban on Friday evening.

As it happened: Sharks v Griquas

The Griquas won 37-13 after leading 10-6 at half-time.

The Griquas dotted down after just two minutes. Number eight Niel Jordaan intercepted and showed some good pace for a big man before being hauled down a couple of metres out. Scrum-half Zak Burger dummied before sniping over from close-range. George Whitehead added the extras.

Five minutes later, Bosch cut the deficit to just one after the Griquas went off their feet at ruck-time.

Whitehead extended the lead in the 51st minute after the Sharks front-row collapsed to give away the penalty. Ten minutes later, the visitors' fly-half added another three after number nine Burger was taken out at the ruck.
