Super 14: Sharks edge Cooper-inspired Reds 30-28

The Sharks continued their return to form in Super 14 rugby by overturning an 11-point deficit to edge the Queensland Reds 30-28 for a third straight victory.
Second-half tries from Odwa Ndungane, Jacques Botes and Springboks winger JP Pietersen saw the Sharks home on Saturday after they had trailed 21-9 to a Reds side inspired by flyhalf Quade Cooper.
Cooper started and finished a move in the 11th minute to give the Reds the lead. Rugby league convert Will Chambers then scored two tries, his second created by Cooper, to put the Australian team in control.
But the Sharks replied with three tries in 22 minutes and held on despite Greg Holmes' bonus-point try for the Reds.
