  • oh it is so hard to call. i dislike the bulls. i like some of their players though. the force have played decent rugby but they are aussies. a bulls win helps the stormers who until rassies arrival i also disliked. oh who to back, who to back. i’ll back the winners. i’ll be like an indian spectator at kingsmead. :lol:

    the one thing i cant understand is all those armguards they were…matfield, spies and now JP…just adds to the dirty reputation, take the silly things off, looks like some sort of plaster of paris sledgehammer.

  • If the Bulls play like they did last week, they could win this one. It was a tough one to call, so in the end I went for the Force…simply coz the SA teams tend to shoot themselves in the foot too often!

    Notice i never used the word ‘hate’

    I despise them mostly for their dirty play, their arrogant supporters and the fact that they’ve beaten us regularly for the last few years. :sad:

  • I am telling you TT – a lot rests on tomorrow’s game. If we can get off to a good start – there will be no stopping the Sharks. If we lose badly – it could set the tone for the rest of the away leg – and then those bonus points will come back to bite us.

  • Seriously though, i think the Sharks problems lie at 10, 12 and 13.

    Freddie hasnt been brilliant. Brad is consistent but he is not really playing as well as he did last year.

    Waylon is hopelessly off form and JP is not scoring tries.

    Steyn is also not playing well…

    Come on Sharks. We need you to get a home semi final!!!

  • nessa, we actually have an easy tour. brumbies and highlanders are poor and should be easy wins. waratahs will fight for 60 then our subs will bury them. hurricanes we can punish if jp chases the high ball and puts pressure on the catcher and our defence smother them. then crusaders game depends on who the ref is. if richie is allowed to cheat we will struggle.

    The Force win the restart and the final siren goes. The ball is hacked into touch and that is full-time.

See you tomorrow when we head over to Wellington where the Hurricanes face the Sharks.

  • Was also following it on Rugby365, and that was funny about Steve Walsh. Problem is, SA teams always seem to have some sort of excuse if they lose, but never say that they got lucky if they were favoured.

    As for the Bok squad, I don’t see why PDV would want to change the WC starting XV at all, except for Os. He’s been handed a squad with plenty of experience and should take advantage of that. Jake White showed what consistent selection can achieve, even if the majority of the public think that players are out of form.

  • DP – Even Bakkies, yes. If he plays badly once selected for the Boks, then by all means, drop him. But he is currently the incumbent, so if he is to be dropped, then he must either play his way out of the team (for the Boks), or his replacement has to be playing 10-times better than he is for their franchise.

    That is the basis of success for most good teams – consistency in selection.

    Outstanding Super 14 performers this year should be given a chance to prove themselves in the first Bok training squad to initially make up the numbers in the test squad.

    I agree on consistency of selection, its been proved with all the winning teams and Jake White’s WRC 2007 is a point in case. But you have to balance it with a sound type of reference to form…think how long JW hung onto de Wet and Joubert on the basis of consistency.

    Anyway let’s hope the Boks can put it all together this year and not have “World Cup hang-over”.

  • Agreed DP, there needs to be a point where the coach drops a player when he is continuously underperforming. But that is such a subjective area because no one is aware of the relationship between the coach and the player, except for those two individuals themselves.

    Dunno if you ever read about why Jake kept faith with Ashwin Willemse for such a long time, but in cases like that, you can see the coaches’ logic. Same thing might be true of Barry and Joubert… just that no one is aware of the type of relationship that existed between said parties.

    Aussie cricket have been good with that sort of thing… when the public had called for Mark Taylor or Steve Waugh to be dropped in the past, they were generally proven wrong by the coach over time.
