Venter’s parting shots


Written by Rob Otto (robdylan)

New Western Province recruit A J Venter says he is going to Cape Town to win the Super 14 with the Stormers next year.

And his first match for his new side in the Currie Cup will be when he faces the Sharks on June 20, reports Ashfak Mohamed on IOL.

The 34-year-old loose forward-cum-lock was initially going to retire at the end of the current Super 14, but said that a “fresh body” and healthy mind had swayed him to take up the offer from WP last week.

“I am really excited about joining WP and the Stormers,” he said. “I did feel tired last year, so that’s why I felt that this would be my last Super 14. But I haven’t played a lot of rugby this year, as I seemed to fall out of favour for some reason at the Sharks.

“I do understand that they have a lot of quality young loose forwards and locks, so Dick and John wanted to give them more game time.

“I have been in talks with WP before, but things didn’t work out. They have a good bunch of players and an excellent coaching staff under Rassie Erasmus. You could say that they have a complete team.

“I have never won the Super 14, so that is really important for me. I have been in a few semi-finals and last year’s final, so I want to win the tournament for a change.”

Venter is nursing a broken thumb, but he says he will be fit to start playing in the Currie Cup.

“Can you believe it, hey? My first game for WP is the Sharks in Durban. I probably won’t get the best welcome in Durban, but I am looking forward to it. I do enjoy playing there,” he said.

“I broke my thumb two weeks ago against the Chiefs. But it is only a hairline fracture, so the doctor said I would be able to play in two weeks’ time. So I will be fit to face the Sharks. But I just want to say that I had an unbelievable eight years with them. And there has been talk about why I didn’t play in the semifinal last week, but like I said, I did break my thumb,” said Venter.

  • so he’s been with WP for less than 5 minutes and already he’s mouthing off in the press. Maybe he should go watch the videos and see of he can figure out why he was dropped.

    Or is this maybe just typical Ashfak spin?

    Probably Ashfak spin, but let’s not forget AJ is now a CT boy so that prize for who can write the most Boks into the team now apllies to him as well.

  • Okay – I dont get it or maybe its just a woman-thing, but if anyone is capable – please explain…

    “i know loyalty do not pay the bills, but how can people just swop provinces so easily and get on with it? I mean – they PLAY there hearts out. BELIEVE in their team (or at least I think), and tomorrow play for the enemy and carry on”

    I just dont get it,,just as i cannot even IMAGINE shouting for anyone other than the Sharks, wat nog te se SPEEL… :???:

  • @robdylan (Comment 11) : I’m flip-flopping, though… my natural inclination is to defend the Sharks, no matter what. Still, I don’t think AJ was great this year, but I reckon we should have at least given him the option of a contract if he decided he wanted to keep playing. He deserved more loyalty from the Sharks than he got, I think.

    also remember when AJ didn’t make the cut for the group of “rested” players for last years away tri nations and was selected for the tour. Then he suddenly “retired” from internationals. What was all that about as well?

    Is there a teeny attitude /ego problem ?

    Having said that the guy was a great servant of Sharks over many years, so who knows.

  • AJ was crap all season. I suspect he decided to make a comeback and the Sharks weren’t willing to offer enough.

    He is a good buy in that he is hard, experienced, and wont be called up, but I think the Sharks know first hand what he still has left, and based on this year, that didnt seem enough to keep him contracted.

    In any event, I won’t be surprised if we signed a loosie already – we must have realised the need early – hence the drive to keep AJ for this S14.

    Go well AJ – you were a good servant to Sharks rugby.

  • my 2 cents, sharks started looking better when aj and ackerman were re-introduced and they preferred daniel/deysel. that was their decision, but raissie might see it differently. it might prove to be another spectacularly good buy from rassie, since i suspect AJ did not come with a big price tag and if he’s able to give 1 more S14 seaon, who knows.

    Well Sykes is worthless in the lineout so perhaps 7 would be a better option for him. He would make a much better third or fourth lineout option than 1st or 2nd like he is now.

  • The Longer players like AJ hang around, then more of the talented youngsters who they are blocking leave, Deysel is good but how long would he want to wait in the wings whilst AJ decides “Do I Stay Or Do I Go”. If Sykes plays Flank who plays Lock. Has Hargreaves stepped up to Senior Rugby if so why didn’t he get any Super 14 action.

    Well ICE – the thing is we all learn to convert the “LOYALTY” when we have to. Think about how it’s so easy to cheer for the BLUE BULLS players when they are wearing the GREEN jersey…but so easy to dump them a few weeks later when they return to their BLUE colours.

    LOYALTY is to the COLOURS on the JERSEY – that’s it!

    And how can you blame the oke? In all those years with the Sharks he did not win shit!

    By this time next year he could have a CC and S14 medal!!!

  • I’m surprised that WP didn’t sign Chris Roussow instead of the Cheetahs. Is Tony Brown playing CC? If not, who do they have at 10 for the CC with both Dollie and Grant out. OK….the Chris signing was a bit tongue in cheek. :cool:

    I was trying to be kind Hmmm….he didn’t completely screw up the 7s team, and treau has been much better, I agree.

    Just because someone was a good rugby player does not mean they will be a good coach. Chester is no coach. Perhaps he may be OK at coaching skills, but certainly not a head coach.

    Even with my issues with PdV, he has shown that he is a good coach.

    PdV has shown he can achieve results with ordinary players…

    We dont need Aj anyway,i heard they are going to use Johan Ackermann aswell,ha ha ha!!!!what a joke…whos next for W.P,bozo the clown?

    And i wish rassie would stop stealing players and talk to players behind
    behind other coaches backs!!!…stop it rassie!!!

    I surely hope that we will also buy a few good players to make up for our depth.
