The Sharks have two key data points available to them this week as they prepare to take on the Hurricanes in a game that they simply have to win in order to stay within play-off contention. Paying close attention to both and absorbing the necessary lessons should set them up nicely for that crucial victory. [...]

Hi everyone. I watched Friday’s game with one eye on our style of play and the other on the end result. Before I discuss that though, very well done to the guys who came in and played their hearts out. [...]

29 Apr 16 11:32 by Rob Otto (robdylan) | 127 Comments

The Sharks put in a gutsy and passionate display at the Yarrow Stadium in New Plymouth, but were ultimately defeated by the high-flying Chiefs by just two points in this morning’s Super Rugby clash.

Super Rugby 2016: Round 10 preview and predictions

28 Apr 16 09:45 by Rob Otto (robdylan) | 30 Comments

With only seven more regular-season rounds to go after this one, Super Rugby, unbelievably, is already well past the halfway mark and the wheat is starting to be properly separated form the chaff in most of the conferences.

Chiefs away, or Canes at home? In an ideal world, you win both, of course, but this is far from an ideal world and you have to concede that playing two such big games, on different continents, with just an 8 day turnaround (and at least 24 hours of travel in between) is a very big ask indeed.
