The Sharks have won the last four Super Rugby matches between them and the Force at home in Durban and away in Perth.
We are waiting for the kick off.
The Force kick off and we are underway.
2.00: The Force get the ball back after the restart and work the ball into the Sharks 25. They string together 10 phases but knock on so we have a scrum.
5.00: The Sharks concede a penalty so the Force will kick for posts. Harvey takes the kick and nails it. The Force lead.
8.00: The Force are dominating territory but they concede a penalty so the Sharks kick for touch.
10.00: The Sharks are getting much more into the game. JP Pietersen gets through the defence but stumbles a little. He recycles and the Sharks have a huge overlap which somehow they manage to butcher. We get called back for a penalty for the Sharks.
12.00: Patrick Lambie takes the penalty kick and levels the scores.
15.00: Jannie du Plessis comes off for blood. Matt Hodgson of the Force also had some medical attention but seems fine now. The Sharks work the ball to the posts and they drive Steven Sykes over the line for the first TRY.
16.00: Pat Lambie adds the conversion.
20.00: Salesi Ma'afu drops his hand to the ground in the scrum conceding a penalty so the Sharks kick for touch.
22.00: Penalty to the Force just on their 25m line. They kick for touch.
24.00: The Force attack in the Sharks 25.
28.00: There is a break in play as Patrick Lambie gets some medical attention. He carries on.
29.00: The Force have a penalty so David Harvey takes the kick and nails it.
32.00: Pat Lambie breaks through the Force's line and passes to Tim Whitehead who scores. TRY!
32.00: Lambie adds the conversion.
37.00: Penalty to the Sharks. Lambie takes the kick but it hits the posts.
39.00: Another penalty to the Sharks. This one Lambie slots.
The half time siren sounds. We play on a little but the ball is kicked out so it is half time.
The half time score is Sharks 20 Force 6
The second half is underway.
The Sharks pulled Patrick Lambie for the second half and Frederic Michalak is on.
41.00: The Sharks get the perfect start as they break away and Louis Ludik scores.
42.00: Michalak adds the conversion and the Sharks lead comfortably.
44.00: The Force are on attack but Lwazi Mvovo gets a hand to the ball and catches an intercept, he races away and scores the bonus point try.
45.00: Fred Michalak takes the conversion and misses.
49.00: Almost exactly as he just did Mvovo gets another hand to the ball and races and score again. This one started with a toe to the ball as the Force were attacking.
51.00: Michalak converts.
54.00:Keegan Daniel comes off and Ryan Kankowski comes on.
57.00: The Sharks are 5m out and driving for the line. They get held up and then called back for a scrum and then they drive for the line again.
59.00: The Force hang on but it gets worse as they are shown a yellow card. Lachlan McCaffrey will spend the next 10 mins in the bin.
60.00: The Sharks drive over the line and Bismarck du Plessis scores for the Sharks. However Tom Bressler came in contact with a players face so the try is disallowed.
61.00: Tom Bressler is replaced Pieter-Steph du Toit.
65.00: The Force are actually playing much better with 14 men as they are holding on to the ball. They have the ball in the Sharks half and are not letting go.
67.00: The Sharks kick the ball ahead and Louis Ludik races away and wins the races but he is tackled by Sam Wara without the ball so he concedes a penalty. The Sharks run the ball.
68.00: The Sharks get to the line, everyone appears to stop at the ruck and suddenly Craig Burden snipes low and scores.
68.00: Fred Michalak adds the conversion.
71.00: The Sharks drive over the line and McLeod comes close to scoring but he loses the ball as he goes over. No try.
72.00: The Sharks take quick tap and go from 5m out and Jacques Botes scores the seventh try.
73.00: Michalak adds the conversion.
77.00: Penalties conceded by the Force so far 17. Man of the match is Tendai Mtawarira.
78.00: Craig Burden is shown a yellow card for tripping David Pocock.
79.00: The Force look to have scored in the corner so we go upstairs to check. The try is awarded to Sam Wara.
80.00: Ben Seymour misses the conversion. The final whistle goes. Thats it.
