The Waratahs host the Sharks in Sydney.

This is it the Sharks have been practicing for this all season, winning without a bonus point that is……

Will the Sharks squeak another win as was the norm at the early stages of the competition or will they show the form they showed in the last two matches of the season?

Or will the Waratahs have ideas of repeating the result of the league match?

Kick-off in Sydney at 12:00 SA time.

  • SuperBru picking statistics

    Picks for Waratahs 6112 (31.21%)
    Picks for Sharks 13461 (68.73%)
    Picks for draw 11 (0.06%)

    Quite the opposite of what I expected actually.

  • That was truly diabolical…the Sharks’ Doctor Jekyll turned up tonight – though take nothing away from the Tahs, their defense was superb & their loosies dominated.

    Something was wrong – their was no communication amongst the Sharks tonight, poor body language. You guys scoffed at this earlier this week, but all this AJ & John Smit nonsense has obviously been a lot more unsettling than one would think.

    FFS, AJ was sitting isolated from the Sharks reserves… I just think the signings should have been done AFTER the conclusion of the S14. I’ll say it again – TACTLESS.

    Epi the brainfart was abysmal – I hope he NEVER wears the Sharks jersey again, he ended up “playing for the Tahs”. :shock:

    Got a feeling that the Sharks will make a plan to get that R1.5 million for John after this performance tonight…. :roll:

  • On Steyn/Barritt…

    Steyn was heavily marked & fairly predictable in the first half – no impact, he couldn’t break the line. Plus it alarms me when Fransie just tosses the ball back, headless chicken style…

    Barritt definitely made an impact when he came on – who said he couldn’t break the line. Also tightened our defense. Hope the coaching staff took notes.

    I agree…but Ruan knocked a few as well and Kockett had a few very hard high passes or wobbling pases….

    I think too much of the Sharks penetration game was based on Epi….and the Kockett/Ruan half pairing were out of their league on the day…

    And Adi was just smashed around…out muscled

    And the Sharks were not competitive at the breakdowns…not cleaning out very well….

    MY opinion on he dif to last week to this…

  • Hmmm, Sharks didn’t look united as a team. The isolation of AJ highlighted that all is not lekker in that squad. When the Sharks players walked off – some towards the bench, AJ just looked on from the background as if he was no longer part of the team – he looked pretty forlorn, maybe he himself realised that his timing was wrong in signing for WP.

    It’s not an excuse, the Tahs probably would have won regardless, but the Sharks didn’t look like they were all that motivated – in fact they looked quite the opposite, barring Barritt & Odwa.

  • i dont know what the reason for AJ not playing was.
    also, i know its unpopular right now, but think epi might yet prove a useful signing if they keep, 1 game back with a howler is hard to judge him on, hindisght is a perfect science, but dick knew they had to try get momentum to combat the likes of palu-waugh-elsom, the only player that can really do that is epi – but hands were terrible.
    he was not the only one, the lineout was a disaster area (dunno if bis or locks but vickerman-mumm won that). Tahs also made more linebreaks.

  • @Me2 (Comment 354) : i think you’re quite entitled to your opinion that he’s useless, and on todays performance, you might be right…it also might be that his selection was incorrect and AJ should have played, am a big fan of aj.

    However, i can understand why they wanted Epi for this particular game, since the sharks had been driven back behind the adv line a few weeks back in sydney and wanted someone to hit it up and put in some palu-esque tackles…unfortunately epi did not hold onto the ball long enough to be able to see if that coulld have been turned around.

  • I will just mention one thing – don’t try and over-analyze this performance. Dick made certain picks and the thinking behind it was sound – it just did not pay off.

    The BIGGEST reason for the Sharks loss today in my view, was the quality of possession, specifically 1st phase possession they got or gave to the backs. It was way below par.

    For once, their forwards failed.

    As an aside…

    I read some posts on John Smit and how the Sharks are reluctant to bring him back (forget the money they got it) because they fear losing Bismarck…

    Look I rate Bissy, but he has a damn long way to go, and given today’s performance, if Bismarck threatens to leave, pull a Jake and buy him a ticket.

    It is for exactly the same reason Schalk Brits is nowhere near Bok quality – look how he imploded (against the Lions) when the pressure was on.

    Suck it up, move on – and if you are a Shark – hope an pray they sign John Smit.

    We might have to wait for a reveal all book before we hear the reason for that I believe.

  • reason i ask is on wednesday it was reported that aj had injured his hand. this story never surfaced again, but grant bashford did slip during the week that epi would probably start. so it could simply be that aj had actually injured himself in last weeks game. it does make sense as epi wouldn’t have been needed and wouldn’t have gone over if aj was fine. epi’s inclusion in the touring squad was a great mystery, but an injury to aj would explain it. if he was dropped for his talks with wp, he wouldn’t have been given a plane ticket. also what does dick care about where the players go, he isn’t the sharks coach anymore.

    i stand corrected but I think AJ’s signing for WP only became public after they had left for Aus.

  • ksa, if it only became public after they left, epi wouldn’t have been on the plane. i think if it was due to the contract, then aj would not have made the trip. injury sounds the most plausible as epi was drafted in last minute.

    That only became public AFTER they left. Unless anyone can show me something in the media before their departure.

  • @KSA Shark © (Comment 398) : you aren’t getting it. if it was due to the contract, epi wouldn’t have been on the flight. he was called in at the last minute for a reason. an injury to aj is the only plausible reason. he was relieved from his contract with the sharks, so there had to be a big reason he was called back. if it was the contract, aj would have been left behind. so the most plausible reason he was on the same flight as aj, was because aj was injured. if it was the contract that aj was benched then keegan or deysel would have started as epi wouldn’t have been over there.

  • whatever the reason, the game has been played, the final whistle blown and we lost :cry:
    bottom line, we missed AJ today, big time ! whether he was injured, or had contract issues, he wasn’t in the game and we can’t go back and change anything so…..
    its time to look forward….we didn’t get the silverware for the S14, lets see what we can do in the CC :mrgreen:
