Hail the Beast!!

Some people say legends are born and others that they are made by the sweat of their brow. I’m not going to debate that and I’m not going to pick a side…I am, however, going to pay tribute to someone I consider a living legend: The Beast!


Sharks hit high in a “puppet on a string” season

6 Apr 19 09:24 by Udo Lütge (pastorshark) | 45 Comments

“Love is just like a merry-go-round
with all the fun of a fair
One day I’m feeling down on the ground
Then I’m up in the air.”

Sandie Shaw sang the ditty “Puppet on a String” – featured in the movie “Apocalypse Now” – that contains these words. They sure could be a Sharks Supporters anthem!! The Sharks completely outplayed the Lions at Ellis Park last night to thump them 42-5!!

Time to correct a serious anomaly

28 Mar 19 11:11 by Henk Terblanche (Bokhoring) | 9 Comments

Over the past 5 years the Sharks had wins against teams like the Crusaders (in NZ playing with 14 and then 13 men), Hurricanes, Highlanders, Chiefs, Blues, Waratahs, Lions and Stormers, but we have not tasted victory against the Bulls in Super Rugby since 15 February 2014. These are seasons in which the Sharks featured in a semi-final and were ahead of the Bulls on the log in all cases except in 2015.

Time to correct this sorry state of affairs.


Teams for Sharks – Bulls rematch

28 Mar 19 10:51 by Henk Terblanche (Bokhoring) | 209 Comments

Hopefully Craig Burden will make the field this time. Sbu Nkosi drops out of the squad and his spot is taken by Lwazi Mvovo. Stringer swaps places with Pepsi. I am also glad to see especially Van der Walt and Van Wyk back on the bench.


And now for something completely different…

27 Mar 19 21:02 by Udo Lütge (pastorshark) | 53 Comments

I know this is a rugby site…but I thought I would just write a little something about that other ball sport…you know, the one with the hard white ball and bats! Local side the Dolphins have a home semi-final tomorrow night and will be aiming at reaching the Momentum Cup final.

Important win as Sharks down Rebels

25 Mar 19 10:11 by Udo Lütge (pastorshark) | 77 Comments

The Sharks completed an important, if at times scrappy, win over the Melbourne Rebels to find their way back into the South African conference race. Losses for the Stormers and Bulls opened the door for them and they stepped through to regain some lost ground in what is turning out to be a very open conference race.


Sharks vs Rebels

23 Mar 19 16:45 by Udo Lütge (pastorshark) | 200 Comments

This evening sees the Sharks take on the Rebels in an important game for the men from the coast. After two poor games against South African opposition, the Sharks will want to get a good result against their first Australian opposition of the year.


And then there was 14 (again)!!!

22 Mar 19 10:22 by Jan Dyman (JD) | 12 Comments

As from the 2021 Super rugby season Japan’s Sunwolves will be axed from Super Rugby reducing the total number of teams back to 14.


Burden returns against the Rebels

21 Mar 19 12:27 by Henk Terblanche (Bokhoring) | 34 Comments

Craig Burden is probably the biggest surprise selection in the Sharks team for the game against the Rebels. He should be adding a bit of much needed physicality when he comes on as replacement.


Where are we at?

11 Mar 19 10:12 by Henk Terblanche (Bokhoring) | 88 Comments

After the disappointment at Loftus, perhaps time to take a few deep breaths, step back and consider the state of our season so far.


Team for Loftus clash

7 Mar 19 09:59 by Henk Terblanche (Bokhoring) | 231 Comments

Injuries to Fassi and Paul required some changes to the squad from last week’s loss against the Stormers. Rhyno Smith takes over at 15 (with Bosch moving onto the bench) and Vermeulen moves to 7 with Vosloo getting his first start of the year.

Some rotational changes see Kerron van Vuuren (bench), Ruan Botha and Cam Wright (bench) dropping out of the match day squad replaced by Fez Mbatha, Koegelenberg and Williams respectively. Hyron Andrews moves from 4 to 5. Esterhuyzen and Ward swaps the starting 12 jersey and bench spot.

Ruben van Heerden (who could make his Super debut along with Fez Mbathta) moves onto the bench.


Almost game time!!!
