Riaan Viljoen scored a last-minute try to steal victory for the Sharks over the Blues at Kings Park on Saturday, the fullback scoring wide on the right wing to settle a Super Rugby game the hosts had controlled for 40 minutes before the New Zealand visitors powered back to lead 20-17 with seconds remaining.
Blues winger Frank Halai scored two tries while All Blacks star Rene Ranger scored off the bench as the Blues rubbed out an early 14-0 deficit at Kings Park before Viljoen went over from a late overlap.
