Reminiscing over the last few seasons it’s hard to believe how the Sharks got “worked” after they took “the drop” off the back of a very successful 2013 Currie Cup campaign. The Sharks decided to part ways with John Plumtree, who took them to two Currie Cup titles in 2008 and 2010, and appointed former Rugby World Cup winning coach Jake White to take them into a new chapter in Sharks Rugby in 2014.

Let’s put aside our doom and gloom for a bit (and forget about the woes of the senior side) as we get firmly behind the Sharks under 21 team for this weekend’s semi-final against Free State. [...]

Masterstroke, or momentum killer?

12 Oct 15 15:02 by Rob Otto (robdylan) | 104 Comments

The Sharks under 21 side, after a run of four unbeaten games that managed to drag them up out of the doldrums and into the semi-finals, suffered a 22-74 defeat at the hands of the Cheetahs this weekend. There’s more to this story, however and I urge that only the brave read further. [...]

12 Oct 15 09:49 by Stephen Smith (StevieS) | 17 Comments

What a horrible feeling. We didn’t win, but it certainly feels like we lost. It’s almost a relief that the season has finally come to an end. [...]

Currie Cup 2015: Round 10

9 Oct 15 09:07 by Rob Otto (robdylan) | 141 Comments

And just like that, the Currie Cup is virtually over for another season, with the last round of league games played this weekend. Only one fixture has any bearing on the make-up of the top 4, while two others will be instrumental in determining the location of one of the semi finals. [...]

Malherbe biting allegation a malicious non-event

8 Oct 15 12:39 by Rob Otto (robdylan) | 20 Comments

World Rugby has issued a statement in response to a spurious allegation from right-wing English tabloid the Daily Mail, accusing Bok tighthead prop Frans Malherbe of biting an oppoennt during his side’s 64-0 annihilation of the US Eagles in Newham yesterday. [...]

7 Oct 15 16:00 by Rob Otto (robdylan) | 695 Comments

The Boks take on the team many regard as the “sleeping giants” of the rugby world. London’s Olympic Stadium is the venue for this Pool B match, which the Boks need to win in order to top the group. [...]

Recapturing that 2012 vibe

7 Oct 15 09:43 by Rob Otto (robdylan) | 38 Comments

With the Sharks quite literally fighting for their Currie Cup lives this weekend (and every week until they are either knocked out or bring the golden cup back to Durban), the union is encouraging fans to get behind the team. [...]

Great day for juniors in Potch

5 Oct 15 11:16 by Rob Otto (robdylan) | 29 Comments

It was mission accomplished for the Sharks junior sides in Potchefstroom on Saturday, with the under 21 side picking up the bonus point win they needed in order to keep pressure on the second-placed Cheetahs heading into the final round. Perhaps more significantly, though, the under 19 side recorded their first win of what has been a very long campaign so far. [...]

What they had to say: Sharks vs Griquas, Round 9

5 Oct 15 11:00 by Stephen Smith (StevieS) | 37 Comments

So I know it was only Griquas, but it’s been so long since a convincing win that I feel we can celebrate. It’s also pleasing to see so many backs amongst the try scorers. Well done boys!!! There isn’t much in the media, probably because it wasn’t televised, and there wasn’t anything on Twitter surprisingly. [...]

Early knock-out round for Sharks, Cheetahs

5 Oct 15 09:07 by Rob Otto (robdylan) | 28 Comments

With nine rounds of Currie Cup action under the belt, the knock-out permutations are becoming less complicated. A big win in Kimberley was just what the doctor ordered for the Sharks and they go into their final round encounter with something to play for, at least – a hope that seemed rather scant after three losses in a row against Western Province, the Lions and the Bulls. [...]

2 Oct 15 09:59 by Rob Otto (robdylan) | 10 Comments

With third place now secure (at least for the time being) and a possible second-placed finish on the table should the next two weeks go well, Mike Horak and AB Zondagh take their Sharks under 21 side down to Potchefstroom for a tough match against the Leopards that they simply have to win – and win well.
