On a challenging night against Sharks, Dragons lost their second consecutive match in South Africa, with Ross Moriarty suffering a catastrophic injury.
Until Moriarty was taken off in significant discomfort during the first half, the Dragons were more than holding their own.
Bongi Mbonambi and Ox Nche scored tries for the Sharks before Werner Kok scored a magnificent solo try, two penalty tries, and Anthony Volmink’s goal completed a bonus point win.
It was a humiliating evening for Dragons, who had three players yellow carded and were coming off a 55-20 loss to Bulls the week before.
Moriarty was one of nine changes to the Dragons’ lineup after their loss at Loftus Versfeld.
The triumph was the ideal answer for Sharks following their earlier loss to Edinburgh, who made history by being the first northern hemisphere team to win a United Rugby Championship game in South Africa.
Sharks took a 6-0 lead thanks to two penalties from Curwin Bosch, but Dragons answered with a penalty from Josh Lewis.
The Dragons were handed a major setback when Moriarty sustained what seemed to be a catastrophic knee injury. Another Bosch penalty restored the home side’s six-point lead.
The back row seemed to be in a lot of pain as he was treated for a long time before being removed off the field.
At Kings Park, Dragons back rower Ross Moriarty is carried off the field.
Soon after Moriarty’s departure, the Sharks’ forwards showed their might, as prop Nche scored the game’s first try from close range.
Within three minutes, the Sharks had scored their second try, with South African hooker Mbonambi scoring after a driving maul, and Bosch converting.
Kok scored a superb third try for the Sharks, aided by some dubious Dragons defence.
Before the Sharks scored a bonus point, Bosch’s conversion put the hosts ahead 30 points.
After an intentional knock on by fly-half Lewis was ruled to have unlawfully halted a try, they were granted a penalty try. Lewis was yellow carded for his conduct.
With scrum-half Lewis Jones also receiving a yellow card for an intentional knock on, the Dragons were down to 14 men, and the Sharks were granted a second penalty try.
Sharks made good use of their numerical advantage, with full-back Volmink punishing the Welsh side by sprinting in for a try, which Bosch converted.
They should have scored another try, but Nche’s knock on thwarted a promising play started by Bosch’s chip kick.
The Dragons struggled to get inside the Sharks’ 22, particularly in the second half, and Ben Fry’s late yellow card – their third of the night – summed up their performance.
