Sharks Super Rugby Squad (maybe)

15 Jan 19 12:10 by Henk Terblanche (Bokhoring) | 32 Comments

I have found this Sharks squad listed at Sanzar Rugby.

One would therefore assume it is a pretty official one, but it does contain one Rhyno Smith who I understand has moved to the Cheetahs.

Best wishes for 2019 to all citizens of Sharksworld and their families.

While we tread water and wait for the Sharks’ rugby season to start, how about we take part in two common practices at the start of any new year – resolutions and predictions?

What options has Rassie got?

27 Nov 18 07:27 by Stephen Smith (StevieS) | 43 Comments

What a shambles of a game against Wales. The players looked jaded, disinterested and seemed to have had one foot on the plane to Monaco for the World Rugby awards. I think I’ll just end my comments on the Wales game by saying there is a lot of work to do before next year’s World Cup and that Rassie will have to make some bold calls with regard to selection and game plan.


Boks vs Wales: Team announcements

22 Nov 18 16:23 by Stephen Smith (StevieS) | 129 Comments

The final game of the year for the Boks and it’s against a Wales team who have become something of a hoodoo for the Bokke, having claimed victory over the Green and Gold in 4 of the last 5 Tests between these 2 teams. Prior to that, Wales had only ever claimed 1 victory over the Boks since the sides first met on the famous tour of 1906. The current records show 28 victories for the Boks, 5 for the Welsh and one draw. The Prince William Cup will be the prize on offer for the winner on Saturday.


Sharks Super Rugby 2019 Fixtures

19 Nov 18 16:46 by Stephen Smith (StevieS) | 37 Comments

The Sharks fixture list has been released for the 2019 season and sees the Sharks avoiding the Brumbies and the Highlanders in the league phase of the competition. The Sharks will enjoy their Byes in Rounds 5 and 14, which divides the competition quite nicely as we play 4 games, have our Bye, then 8 games, our second Bye and then finish off with 4 games, the last of which is in Cape Town.

Kolisi escapes citing

19 Nov 18 09:58 by Stephen Smith (StevieS) | 20 Comments

Springbok captain, Siya Kolisi, has escaped being cited by the Match Commissioner for headbutting Scotland Centre Peter Horne while being held on the ground. I noticed the incident during the match and was, quite frankly, surprised that Kolisi did not get cited. It did not appear malicious, but rather reckless, and Rassie Erasmus can breathe a sigh of relief now that his skipper has been cleared. [...]

Team Announcement: Boks vs Scotland

15 Nov 18 17:46 by Henk Terblanche (Bokhoring) | 186 Comments

Author: Stephen Smith (StevieS)

The Boks take on a confident Scotland this Saturday at Murrayfield at 19:20 (SA time), with the Scots having thrashed Fiji 54-17. Winger Tommy Seymour was in particularly good form, bagging a hat-trick of tries. The Boks are 5th in the World Rugby rankings, with the Scots one place back in 6th. Home ground advantage will definitely be a factor as the Scots have only lost once at home in the last two years, and that to the All Blacks who had to dig deep to win 22-17.


Scotland side named to face Boks

14 Nov 18 14:14 by Stephen Smith (StevieS) | 27 Comments

The Scotland side to take on the Boks has been named, with all 3 South African born squad members named in the team. WP Nel will start at tighthead prop while Josh Strauss and Allan Dell will warm the bench. In addition, outside centre Huw Jones, will be another familiar face, having played for the Stormers. [...]

Springboks vs France

The Springboks take on France in the 44th meeting between these two teams.

The Boks have won 26, lost 11 and there have been 6 draws. [...]

Bok team for Twickenham

1 Nov 18 17:30 by Henk Terblanche (Bokhoring) | 106 Comments

Van Zyl gets another start for the Boks at 9. Is this guy honestly the next best scrumhalf in Rassie’s opinion? PSDT moves back to 5 with Thor starting at blindside. Whiteley starts at 8.Rassie has two locks in Lood and Snyman on the bench. Nkosi will hopefully continue where he left off against England from 14.

Interestingly Thomas du Toit is preferred over Trevor Nyakane as the reserve loose head. Esterhuizen makes the bench in place of the expected Kolbe / Aplon.


Boks vs England Preview

A season by numbers

30 Oct 18 16:35 by Stephen Smith (StevieS) | 7 Comments

Hi, Sharks fans

First off, well done to all of the players, coaches and administrators. That was an incredibly tense final for me, especially when we were down at half-time, after having spurned a penalty right under the poles. Safe to say we can also thank Sergeal Petersen for charging Rob Du Preez’s place-kick early as it allowed Rob a second shot and a chance to calm his nerves a bit. [...]

Rob loaned to the other Sharks

30 Oct 18 08:23 by Henk Terblanche (Bokhoring) | 30 Comments

Rob du Preez Jr has signed a 3 month contract with Sale Sharks and will arrive in the UK this week to prepare with the squad for the upcoming block of Gallagher Premiership games.


Teams for the final

25 Oct 18 15:13 by Henk Terblanche (Bokhoring) | 204 Comments

JLDP start in the blindside flank position while Paul shifts to open side. Fassi gets another chance to show off his pace at 11. Stringer and Vermeulen feature on the bench, and Van Wyk is back in the team on the bench.

Dobson is starting the very under-rated Stander at 10 for WP. Willemse shifts to 12.

Going the distance

Hi, Sharks fans

First off, well done to the lads on a brilliant result against the Lions on Saturday. I was at the game and had my heart in my mouth for one or two moments, but the Sharks showed composure to get the win, and they will be all the better on Saturday for a hard-earned victory. [...]
