    But AJ is no what he used to be…he gets bumped off every game….and a few times in some games too…

    Not as physical as he used to be….

  • Are the LIONS the only team who have a the same CC and S14 coach?

    Or the Cheetahs as well if not mistaken?

    We just have to…we have not won a trophy for a very long time now…
    Well since the Vodacom Cup don’t count for much…

  • @Hmmm (Comment 15) : The Cheetahs only have a Currie Cup coach. That’s why they only won one game in the Super 14

  • @Hmmm (Comment 16) :

    The Sharks have not won anything for longer for that matter….not even the VC…

    And they have played in enough semi’s and finals to have done so…

    We only won 2 and drew 1….so in fact lost 10 out of 13…

  • Gee robdylan is the upcoming summer on that island making you despondent or what. Considering that the Sharks have just ended 3rd in the Super 14 and appeared in the semi-final one would expect a fairly good CC season should be possible.

  • @Salmonoid (Comment 22) : Unless we lose a huge amount of players to the Boks. As we saw in the Vodacom Cup, our reserve depth ain’t up to much

  • @robdylan (Comment 23) :
    :twisted: But then we can always say that we had to play the Currie Cup with our Wildebeest team.

    No I see it as a new start with a new coach and I have to be positive.
