WATCH: Sharks coach Robert du Preez very grumpy … again

Earlier this year, he was also very unhappy with some decisions against his team at Ellis Park. It was the same case again on Saturday.

Sharks coach Robert du Preez’s post-match media conference after the weekend’s narrow 21-23 loss to the Lions at Ellis Park lasted a full 90 seconds.

It’s understood the temperamental former Springboks scrumhalf didn’t initially even want to face the media due to his unhappiness.

When he eventually came out, this was the awkward result…

Meanwhile, the Lions admitted that they were lucky to walk away with their victory.

However, that shouldn’t detract from the drama of Ruan Combrinck’s tense, match-winning 58m penalty.

And captain Jaco Kriel was clearly elated.
