A dramatic 12-9 win over the Stormers secured the Sharks' spot in the Super Rugby play-offs, where they will be joined by the Bulls.
The Sharks secured their place in the Super Rugby play-offs with a last-gasp turnaround in Saturday's 12-9 win away to the Stormers, who missed out on a top-eight finish in heartbreaking fashion.
Rhyno Smith's 28th-minute try ensured the Sharks went into the break 5-3 up, as he pounced on a loose ball in the defensive half and darted clear of the entire Stormers team in an otherwise cagey opening period.
For the most part, the second half was even tighter, as penalties from Josh Stander and Jean-Luc du Plessis looked set to take the hosts through.
But incredible drama followed in the dying seconds, as Lukhanyo Am broke the line when cutting in from the left in the 82nd minute, leaving two in his tracks before crossing when the Sharks' season was hanging by a thread.
Robert du Preez rounded things off with the conversion, as the Sharks head into the play-offs at the expense of their hosts.
