The Sharks recorded their first-ever away win over the Canterbury Crusaders in Saturday's Super Rugby encounter.

However, the milestone was marred by the sending off of flanker Jean Deysel.

The South Africans were reduced to 14 men after Deysel stamped on the face of loose forward Jordan Taufua.

A late try saw the visitors win 30-25, but Deysel will have little reason to be proud.
