Disappointed Sharks coach Dick Muir said his side should have been the ones lifting the Super 14 trophy in front of their home fans on Saturday.

The Sharks and their supporters were left stunned when Bulls wing Bryan Habana went over for the winning try on full-time to set up a memorable 20-19 victory for the men from Pretoria.

“He (Habana) is so dangerous,” said Muir after the game.

“I felt we had done enough to see out the game. We had defended so well throughout the match up until then.

“I thought the game was in the bag when the hooter went and we still had the ball, but we managed to kick it away into the hands of the Bulls.”

The rest as they say, is history.

The Sharks really only have themselves to blame for not closing out the match, yet full credit to the Bulls who never gave up.

“It was a case of dropping the ball and not the ball at the end of the day,” said Muir.

“We just ran out of time and made far too many errors.

“I know we deserved to win, we did all the playing but it quite literally slipped through our fingers.

“To lose a game is not the end of the world, but to lose a game from one error is heartbreaking.”
